Kolkata (June 28,2023) : The Calcutta High Court has directed the West Bengal government to pay salaries to the vice-chancellors (VCs) of state-run universities who were appointed by the governor. The court's order came on a petition filed by the VCs, who had challenged the state government's decision to withhold their salaries.

The court said that the state government's decision to withhold the salaries of the VCs was "arbitrary and illegal". The court also said that the state government's decision was "a clear violation" of the VCs' fundamental rights. The court's order is a major victory for the VCs, who had been facing financial hardship due to the state government's decision to withhold their salaries. The court's order is also a setback for the state government, which had been trying to force the VCs to resign.
