The Kerala High Court on Thursday declined to interfere in the a State government decision to stall grants allotted to MG University (MGU).

Justice K Vinod Chandran passed the order, while considering a plea filed by the University Employees Association. Following a government order in 1997, the University was to submit a certificate every month before the government. In the last affidavit, the University declared that they have created 56 new posts. The government is of the opinion that the creation of the posts is in violation of the rules, as the decision was carried out without its sanction. The government submitted that if the University were to file a fresh statement following the rules, it will reconsider the plea. In addition, the Court pointed out that the University has failed to prove the availability of funds.

In a related development, the Kaviyoor Grama Panchayath President T K Sajeev approached the Court challenging the appointment of A V George as the MGU vice-chancellor. Concerning the challenge, the Court has issued notices to the State government and vice-chancellor. The petitioner submitted that, for getting appointed as VC, a person is expected to be of the highest level of competence, integrity and commitment.
