A Bar Council of India (BCI)-led “fact finding body” produced a critical report in November 2013 on NUJS Kolkata’s affairs.
However, to most intents and purposes, the 224-page report has been buried by the administration since then.
The body noted that the currently present number of 22-23 teachers at NUJS was not enough to meet the “hunger of a modern student”, and that the number was such because “the University did not have adequate and proactive leave policy and faculty deployment planning”.
The fact finding body said that there was evidence indicating that there was a sentiment in the faculty body that favouritism was being practiced at the law school, that there were “clear cases” of irregular employments being made at NUJS, and that maintenance of service records and other records at the law school was abysmal.
