The Kerala high court on Monday ( 17 Dec ,2012) declared as illegal the changing norms after the declaration of result fixed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) for the National Eligiblity Test (NET) for college and university lectureship. Justice P.R. Ramachandran Nair held that the UGC regulations did not confer any right on the UGC to fix high marks after holding of the NET. Nor could such criteria be introduced just before the announcement of the results by executive orders.
The introduction of the new criteria was not supported by the law.The court added that the students were jolted when all of a sudden the UGC prescribed the percentage of the aggregate marks. The adoption of such norms at the final stage and just before the declaration of the results had affected the candidates. The court also declared that the petitioners, who had obtained the separate minimum marks prescribed in the UGC notification, had cleared the NET.It also declared that all those who have obtained minimum marks prescribed in the notification have cleared NET and appropriate follow-up action be taken to issue certificates to them within one month.
