Yogesh Singh on Friday assumed charge as the Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University. Singh, who is DU’s 23rd VC, succeeds Yogesh Tyagi, who was suspended last October over allegations of irregularities and dereliction of duty.
After taking up his new role, he said meeting all stakeholders and understanding the pressing issues facing the university will be his priority.

On Thursday, Singh was given a farewell at Delhi Technology University (DTU) from where he has been as relieved as V-C to assume his new role.
He also said that he will hold discussions with teachers and principals to see whether any changes need to be made to the cut-off system followed by DU for admissions.
Lt Governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday approved relieving of Singh as Delhi Technological University VC to enable him to take charge of the new job.
