Historian Romila Thapar received a letter from JNU asking her to submit her resume for review of Professor Emerita Status bestowed on her, as new varsity guidelines call for review of the status when one turns 75. This has sparked much controversy.
Noted economist Prabhat Patnaik, himself a Professor Emeritus at JNU, sees no rationale in the university asking historian Romila Thapar for her resume to consider continuation of Professor Emerita status for her.
