Thiruvananthapuram: Uncertainty looms over the 21 exam results of APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU). According to reports, the Pro-Vice Chancellor didn’t forward the results of various examinations to the Vice Chancellor in-charge Dr Ciza Thomas, who was appointed by the governor. It is learnt that higher officials and a group of employees continue to non-cooperate with the interim VC.
Though the exam controller forwarded the results of the engineering course and MCA exam results, the Pro-VC blocked it without sending it for VC’s approval, revealed sources close to KTU.
At the same time, a decision on 8000 applications for degree certificate is also pending. So far, the university didn’t take measures to provide e-signature to the new VC. Amidst this, those who secured job in foreign countries raised concern over delay in getting the certificates.
The court didn’t settle the plea moved by government against the appointment of Ciza Thomas as KTU VC. The governor, who appointed Ciza Thomas, is named as the opposite party in the plea.
As the legal fight between the governor and government escalated, the KTU has been facing trouble in issuing the degree certificate as well as publishing exam results.
However, responding to the court’s query, the university lawyer claimed that there is no hindrance in publishing the exam results and rubbished the delay in degree certificate distribution.
Meanwhile, Save University Campaign Committee moved a memorandum with the Chief Minister and Higher Education minister requesting to avoid politics which affects future of the students.
