Nearly 30,000 engineers of the country will now reappear for the tests which will ensure validity of their degrees.
These engineering students have to now re-appear because the Supreme Court had given an order to suspend the degree of the candidates who did their engineering course through distance education mode.
Last week the Supreme Court suspended the degrees which were awarded by the four deemed universities in engineering through distance education mode. The Supreme Court also directed the universities to refund the course fee and other expenditure of the students. According to the rules of AICTE engineering degrees cannot be offered through distance learning mode.
These universities are– JRN Rajasthan Vidyapeeth, Institute of Advanced Studies in Education (IASE), Rajasthan, Allahabad Agricultural Institute (AAI) and Vinayaka Missionʼs Research Foundation, Tamil Nadu.
Almost 30,000 students are expected to be affected by the move and are likely to register for the exam which will be conducted in May or June.
The candidates have time till January 15 to register for the same and this will be their only chance to retain validity of their degrees.
