(G.N.S) Dt. 19

The high court on Thursday issued notice to Prakash Kumar Thakur, secretary, University Grants Commission (UGC), in a contempt petition filed by Karnataka State Open University (KSOU). A division bench headed by Justice B S Patil posted the petition for further consideration on February 8.
Last month, the high court had directed the UGC to grant recognition to KSOU by applying the parity principle. It had ordered the commission to comply with its order within two weeks. But the KSOU claimed that despite communicating the high court’s order to the UGC on December 13, the commission has not complied with the order. KSOU had approached the court last year, claiming UGC had refused to take a decision on granting recognition for 2017-18 despite repeated requests.
