Bihar lecturer returns nearly 33 month salary of Rs 24 Lakh, Know why

Dr. Lalan Kumar, a college lecturer in Bihar, has set a new standard for honesty and integrity by returning his salary of roughly 24 lakh rupees for the past two years and nine months as no student turned up for his classes since he began teaching there in 2019.

Dr. Lalan Kumar, a Hindi lecturer at Nitishwar Campus in the Muzaffarpur region of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Bihar Institution (BRABU), expressed his fear of “academic death” unless the affiliated university moved him to a different college. He asserted that none of the 131 pupils were present for his class.

By sending a letter and a check to the vice chancellor of the university, he has repaid his pay. And questioned why he would accept a pay check when he hasn’t taught the department’s pupils.

However, the pro-vice chancellor of the university, R K Thakur, stated that he has refused to accept the cheque for Rs 23.82 lakh, highlighting the fact that there is no clause in which he could permit the ostensibly altruistic action.

Further, RK Thakur, the BRABU registrar, applauded Lalan Kumar’s initiative, but the college’s principal, Manoj Kumar, criticised it as a ploy to move to the postgraduate department.
