Bhubaneswar: The Higher Education department Thursday directed the Utkal University here to provide teaching and non-teaching employees to Madhusudan Law University in Cuttack.
Madhusudan Law College, one of the oldest law institutes in Odisha and India, was upgraded into a varsity recently.
In a letter to the Vice-Chancellor of Utkal University, Higher Education department Secretary Saswat Mishra said, “Since the new varsity does not have any teaching and non-teaching employees of its own, the Utkal University is directed to allow continuance of the teaching and non-teaching employees of the university who were posted in the erstwhile Madhusudan Law College as on April 27, 2021, in the new university on deployment basis with effect from April 28 till the new institute recruits its own teaching and nonteaching staff.”
The service related matters such as salary increment, pay fixation, promotion, pension and other superannuation benefits of the deployed employees shall be accomplished by the Utkal University. However, for the day-to-day matters, the deployed employees may be placed under the administrative control of the new university as per the arrangements to be annually agreed upon between the two varsities, added the letter.
Notably, Kamaljeet Singh has been appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of Madhusudan Law University.
The law institute has been named after Utkal Gaurav Madhusudan Das, a great lawyer, statesman, industrialist, legislator, writer and social reformer of the 19th century.
