Vice Chancellor Prof Pirzada Qasim chaired the meeting that was also attended by Pro-Vice Chancellors Dr Shahana Urooj Kazmi (Convener MS/PhD programmes) and Dr Nasiruddin Khan, beside all the Deans of the faculties. The meeting also decided that the selection of the supervisors would be taken after the completion of the course work.
