In reply to an unstarred question on August 25, Ministry of External Affairs said no vice-chancellor has been appointed in Nalanda University.
However, according to an RTI reply, vice chancellor Gopa Sabharwal and seven of her associates are drawing salaries since October 2010. Vice-chancellor draws salary of Rs 5,06,513 per month.
Tehelka's Iftikhar Gilani digs up a lot more dirt of this kind. There's probably some innocent explanation for this sort of stuff, but it seems bizarre that this university should be run by the Ministry of External Affairs.
