Bihar college teacher seeks to return Rs 23.82 lakh salary

Patna, 7/7:A young academician in Bihar is hogging limelight for having sought to return a sum of over Rs 20 lakh that he had earned towards salary and other emoluments in the last two years and nine months.



Lalan Kumar, 33, who teaches Hindi literature at a college under the Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar Bihar University here, insisted that he took the drastic step because of the “abysmal attendance” of students at his college.


The varsity’s pro-Vice Chancellor R K Thakur, however, said that he has “refused to accept” the cheque of Rs 23.82 lakh underscoring that “there is no provision” under which he could allow the seemingly idealistic move.
