This is being done in accordance with the provisions of the Delhi University Act, 1922. Prof. PC Joshi has been a Professor of Social Anthropology at the Department of Anthropology, University of Delhi.
Last year President Ram Nath Kovind had suspended Prof Tyagi over ‘misconduct’ regarding certain official appointments.

The new Vice-Chancellor is expected to be made by a committee that will be formed by the Union Ministry of Education.
