KOZHIKODE: The Calicut University (CU) Syndicate meeting held on Tuesday decided to go ahead with the examinations for students currently studying in the Gulf centres.
Earlier, a Division Bench of the High Court had directed the university to close down immediately all its off-campus centres functioning overseas, especially in Gulf countries.
The court observed that the running of off-campus centres overseas by the university was against the statutes and the directives of the Distance Education Council and University Grants Commission (UGC).
However, the university will go for an appeal in the special case, as it would affect its 2,000 plus students in 25 overseas counselling centres.
The Syndicate also mentioned the case of Punjab Technical University, where it was backed by a similar verdict from the Supreme Court. DLitt Honours: Lal, Usha give consent
Calicut University will honour only those who have given consent for its DLitt. For now, only actor Mohanlal and Olympian P T Usha have give consent to honour them with DLitt. The university had decided to honour Sachin Tendulkar, E Sreedharan and Sharjah Emir also.
