Court Orders Stay on Engineering Supplementary ExamA division bench of the Karnataka High Court, headed by Chief Justice Vikarmajit Sen, ordered a stay on the single bench order asking the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) to notify the date for conduct of supplementary exams for about 30,000 engineering students.

The stay order was passed after hearing two writ appeals, one by VTU and another by aggrieved students denied interim relief by the single bench.

VTU has claimed that guidelines with regards to autonomous institutions are governed by AICTE regulations and cannot be equated with their regulations. While students, who have become ineligible to join the fifth semester on account of non-clearance of certain subjects from previous semesters, claimed they were not given the same benefit (supplementary exams) by the single bench as given to students who joined the course in 2011-12.

The single bench, while asking for conduct of supplementary exams and special classes for 2011-12 students, had refused to extend the same benefit to students who became ineligible for joining the fifth and seventh semesters as they did not challenge these regulations when they joined the third semester.

The next hearing in the petition is put on 18th September.
