In a major shock, Supreme Court passed judgment in late 2017 that ALL ENGINEERING DEGREES AWARDED THAT WERE AWARDED SINCE 2001, VIA CORRESPONDENCE COURSES ARE INVALID. The judgement was given after it was confirmed with the UGC and AICTE (both government bodies) if the concerned colleges and universities had been given prior permission. But to get what appears to be a simple confirmation have really taken so long and one that now impacts thousands and thousands of students and families. Could the Supreme Court or other Courts for that matter have heard such cases on a priority basis? It seems doubtful that lack of time – over these years – could be a reason.
