Kerala varsities deny equivalency certificate for Annamalai graduates despite court order: Complaint

Thiruvananthapuram: A complaint has been lodged with the chief minister and the higher education minister of Kerala saying that the universities in Kerala are not providing equivalency certificates for students graduated from Annamalai University in Tamil Nadu during the period of 2015-2022 in distance education mode.

University Grants Commission on March 25, 2022 had issued a circular stating that the certificates issued to students who pursued courses under distance mode from Annamalai University in the 2015-22 period were invalid.

However, the Madras High Court on June 20 this year overruled this circular and ordered that the certificates were valid.

Rural Economic and Educational Development Society, a nonprofit organisation, alleges that the universities in Kerala are not following the high court order. This denies employment and job opportunities for many people in Kerala, it said in the complaint.
