 The point to be noted here is that In the set up of Indian universities, the President of India is the ex-officio Visitor of all the Central Universities. The functions of the Visitor include the appointment of the Vice-Chancellors; appointment or nomination of persons on the university, court, academic council, executive council. selection committees for teachers; approval of statutes and the visitation rights to cause an inspection. The Governor of the State is a Chancellor of the State Universities.

While the Chancellor is described as " the Head of the University ",the Vice- Chancellor is the " Principal Academic and Executive Officer of the University". As the academic and executive head of the University, the Vice-Chancellor has to play the most significant role as the leader of the university system both in the executive and academic wings. He functions as a " bridge" between the executive and the academic wings of the university and as he is the head of both these wings, he is both a "teacher and an " administrator".
