PUNE: Six months before his tenure ends, Bhushan Patwardhan, vice-chairman of the University Grants Commission, has resigned from his post. He has cited personal reasons for the decision. He will join the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) as distinguished professor. “I am in Pune, and will be teaching and conducting research at the SPPU,” Patwardhan told TOI on Sunday.
Patwardhan was appointed in September 2018. Before joining UGC, he headed the SPPU's Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences.
