ISRO ex-chief Madhavan Nair steps down as IIT-Patna chairman
New Delhi: Former Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief G Madhavan Nair, who has been barred from holding any government job, has stepped down as Chairman of the Board of Governors of IIT-Patna.

The government's move to bar Nair and three other space scientists from holding any future government jobs follows the controversial Antrix-Devas Multimedia satellite deal, which was annulled.

Nair was in Patna on Friday to bid farewell to his colleagues. He said that he has not received any copy of the government order but still he did not want to continue.

Nair, who is disappointed over the government's decision, said that he has filed an application under the RTI Act to receive copies of the order and reports of B K Chaturvedi Committee on the Antrix-Devas deal.

He said he has also sought a copy of the report of a team led by former CVC Pratyush Sinha which recommended action based on the findings of the Chaturvedi Committee.

Nair has also wanted a copy of the report of a team led by former CVC Pratyush Sinha which recommended action based findings of the Chaturvedi Committee.

He said that he is helpless and unable to do anything unless he gets some information under the RTI Act.

According to Nair, Sinha panel has sent a questionnaire but they are permitted to present their case by the Chaturvedi panel. To solve the issue, Devas Multimedia has moved to the International Court of Arbitration.
