My first and warm greetings to the entire fraternity of the University of Allahabad. As I assume the responsibilities of the Vice Chancellor of this great institution, pride and hope fill my heart. As the fourth oldest university of the country, established in the year 1887, the University of Allahabad has continued to fulfill its responsibility of enriching the country with thinkers, scientists, entrepreneurs, administrators, writers, artists and politicians. I feel privileged and honored to serve this University as the first woman Vice Chancellor.
I join this prestigious office with the commitment to not only keep up the past glories but also to steer the institution on the path to new directions in keeping with the demands of the new times. The last few years have changed the nature of demands from an education of higher learning with unprecedented developments in sciences and opening up of the boundaries of the subjects into interdisciplinary nature. The New Education Policy 2020 reflects the shift in vision regarding education from the creation of a resource pool to a path of holistic development of the person.
Let us aspire to build the institution back into a centre for excellence not just in the official sense but also in the perception of the people. Interdisciplinary nature of research.

We have tried to provide them support of infrastructure and we will step up the effort to meet the shortfalls so that their work is as unhindered and hassel-free as possible. Our focus has to be on broadening the base of the nature of research and making it interdisciplinary and socially useful.
I acknowledge the contribution of all the alumni who have made an indelible mark wherever they reached and proved the logo of the University "Quot Rami Tot Arbores". We urge our alumni for their active coordination, cooperation, guidance and constructive suggestion for the betterment of their alma mater.
If the university is to succeed in broadening its horizons of success, it needs the contribution and support of all the stakeholders including the students, the teachers, the staff, the guardians and the people. I urge all of you to come together to create an environment where this aspiration is fulfilled.
