HC directs BU to conduct examsfor study centres

The Karnataka High Court directed the Bangalore University to conduct a special examination for 6 affiliated study centres within Bangalore city limits.

Justice B V Nagarathna was hearing a petition filed by Manasa Education Trust and 5 other study centres who have moved the court challenging Bangalore Universitys denial to conduct examination for these centres.

The petitioners had sought to quash the notice issued by the University.

They stated that the general notification dated November 7, 2016, affirmed that the study centres situated beyond the Bangalore city limits cannot be approved. The university also disapproved the college admissions of the petitioners students for the academic year 2016-17.

The petitioners claimed that the study centres are in accordance with the University Grants Commissions guidelines. They are affiliated colleges and are situated in the city.

The university had issued a notification for conducting the examination for students admitted for the period 2016-17. The examinations are set to be conducted from January 22, 2018.

Even though the petitioners students are entitled to appear for the examination, the university has denied the students from it.

The examinations are to be conducted for undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

The matter was adjourned.
