Kochi: The Kerala High Court here on Thursday directed the senate in the Kerala University to nominate its member for the search cum selection committee which will be set up for the appointment of Vice-Chancellor (VC). The court has given a 30-day deadline for the same.

Once the senate nominates a member, the chancellor(governor) has to issue a notification regarding the formation of a search committee. Following this, the vice-chancellor should be appointed in a time-bound manner.

The court pointed out that the governor who is the chancellor of universities in Kerala can evoke legal actions if the senate is not nominating its member within the given time frame. However, if the senate needs more time it can approach the court, it added.

The court issued its directive to the senate while considering a plea moved by Alappuzha native S Jayaram, demanding senate disbandment if they cannot nominate a member for the selection committee.
