Bhubaneswar: Governor Ganeshi Lal, who is also the Chancellor of all State universities, today appointed Pawan Kumar Agrawal as the new Vice Chancellor of Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT).
Agrawal is presently serving as Director/ADG of National Agriculture Science Fund (NASF). It is an integral wing of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). He will serve as the VC for three years from the date of assumption of charge, said sources.
Notably, the post of OUAT VC was lying vacant since March 19 this year after Surendranath Pashupalak tendered his resignation just days before his retirement over alleged financial irregularities.
