January 3, 2018

Mysuru: The Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) is likely to file Contempt of Court case against the University Grants Commission (UGC) for not obeying the direction over granting renewal of affiliation.

On December 12, 2017, the High Court of Karnataka issued an order directing UGC to give recognition to KSOU for 2017-18 academic year within two weeks of the order and the UGC has not communicated anything to the University so far.

KSOU Vice-Chancellor Prof. K.N. Shivalingaiah is in New Delhi and will meet the newly appointed UGC Chairman Prof. D.P. Singh at 3 pm today.

Speaking to Star of Mysore, Prof. Shivalingaiah said that he was meeting the UGC Chairman as a last try.

“The minutes of the meeting will be placed before the Board of Management meeting (BoM) scheduled to be held on January 10. The BoM meeting was scheduled to be held on Wednesday (January 3), but as we all decided to approach the UGC one last time to get our affiliation, we postponed the meeting,” Vice-Chancellor Prof.  Shivalingaiah said.
