An order of the MHRD said that the committee had been constituted with the concurrence of the Union Minister and would have Dr. Natarajan as convener and V.Balachandran, retired Director General of Police of Tamil Nadu, as member.

The committee’s terms of reference include examining the alleged violations of statute regarding nomination of Dr. Hariharan on the planning board, a complaint that Samyuktha, librarian in the university, had made to the National Commission for Scheduled Caste and the case of illegal detention of S.Radhakrishnan, first year post-graduate student.

The committee will also go into the alleged violation of statutes in appointment of V.Indumathi as Director of Studies, Educational Innovations and Rural Reconstruction and the conduct of executive council meetings by the V-C without visitor’s nominees.

Dr.Chandra had alleged that the Registrar frequently went on leave without prior approval. On major policy decisions, the Registrar returned the files without reasons, she had said.
