Dr Dattagupta , the Vice Chancellor of Visva-Bharati University has sent a letter resigning from his post to the President after he was accused of financial and administrative irregularities.

He had emailed his resignation to the President and the government and he may be asked to file a hard copy. The Ministry had set up a committee to probe allegations against Dr Dattagupta after the issue was raised in the Rajya Sabha's Winter Session last year by Congress Parliamentarian from Bengal Pradip Bhattacharya. Once the committee framed its charges, the Vice Chancellor was asked to submit his response on why he should not be removed from the post over the charges framed by the three-member panel.  The Charges against Dr Dattagupta included drawing salary from Visva-Bharati and pension from Jawaharlal Nehru University simultaneously in alleged violation of a law. He was also charged with making irregular appointments, including that of the Controller of Examinations despite having no powers, and sanctioning key posts in violation of the Visva Bharati Act.
