Thiruvananthapuram: APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University has begun distribution of certificates to students as the facility for e-signing was made available for the vice chancellor.
As many as 21 exam results were withheld by the university. Of these, B.Tech, M.Tech, MBA, MCA results were published.
Meanwhile, the state government has decided to file a petition challenging the High Court judgement which stated that Prof Ciza Thomas could continue as the vice chancellor of university. Government sources said that further action would be taken after examining the judgement.
As many as 8,000 applications for the graduation certificate were pending as the VC had not signed it. The university authorities had denied the e-signing facility to the VC, leading to pending applications.
The vice chancellor held discussions with officials, including registrar and controller on Wednesday. No protests were held against the VC during the day.
A total of 1,125 graduation certificates and 208 M.Tech certificates were signed on Wednesday after the VC got the e-signing facility. Ciza Thomas said the priority was to complete the distribution of certificates quickly.
There was an allegation that the pro vice chancellor had withheld the results of 21 exams without forwarding them to the VC. This issue was solved as the results of the first and second semesters of B.Arch, MCA and B.Tech and that of BHMCT were approved on Wednesday.
