D S Chauhan takes over as AIU President
NEW DELHI : Prof Durg Singh Chauhan, vice-chancellor of G L A University, Mathura is the new President of the Association of India Universities. He took charge on July 1, this year and would head the institution for one year.

Polite, patient and tactful, Dr Chauhan is essentially a professor of Electrical Engineering, from IIT-BHU. Coming from a hardcore RSS background he became the founder vice-chancellor of UP Technical University during BJP government, then moved to Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar. From there he moved on to the vice-chancellor of Jaypee University of Information Technology, Waknaghat, followed by Uttarakhand Technical University, Dehradun. His is presently vice-chancellor of G L A University, Mathura -- an institution he nursed as a college when he was the VC of UP Technical University.

Hailing from East UP, both Dr Chauhan and the AIU Secretary-General Furqan Qamar belong to neighbouring districts, but temperamentally they are poles apart.

However since Dr Chauhan is both accommodative and patient their combination will benefit the institution.
