High Court Asks UGC Reasons For Not Recognising Degrees

The punjab and Haryana high court has asked the University Grants Commission (UGC) to clarify the explanation behind not recognizing distance education degrees non inheritable by students that examinations were conducted at centers outside the territorial jurisdiction of universities.
The state supreme court bench of justice Jaswant Singh conjointly asked the UGC to submit particulars of a “conscious decision” taken relating to the ban on such examinations for degrees of recognized distance education courses.
The response was wanted the punjab government didn’t contemplate around 1,000 lecturers — who had completed degree courses from universities having examination centers outside their territorial jurisdiction — for promotion.
In July, the state supreme court stayed 2,200 promotions, but allowed punjab to elevate these teachers in August with a rider that these would be subject to the result of petitions unfinished on the problem, and conjointly that the state wouldn’t issue a lot of promotion orders against vacant posts in state colleges.
