Siliguri: NORTH Bengal University (NBU) in Siliguri today got a new vice-chancellor following the superannuation of Somnath Ghosh on 11 February.

Teaching and non-teaching staff of NBU accorded Bhattacharya a warm welcome. He will be in office for the next four years unless something goes wrong.
“I shall focus my energy on lifting the academic standard of NBU further. I will also work to ensure that the varsity excels in other related spares as well,” he told reporters soon after assuming office.
