1. Guru Nanak Dev University - Decision of the University to discredit or render ineligible distance education itself is not at issue - If there is a policy which the University had taken not to recognize degree obtained through distance education, it is a policy well within its own prerogative - Surely an egregious error on the part of the college to allow the student the benefit of admission without specifically incorporating a condition even in the prospectus that degree from distance education University would not be recognized college was prepared to defy the University and literally dare the University to take penal action or it believed that the University will not mind its lapse and condone the same - Petitioner brought to herself a situation by dogged conduct cannot legitimize the result of the examination and secure to the petitioner a postgraduate degree in English - Imposed cost on the college of Rs.50,000/- to be paid to the petitioner for letting her waste two years of study.       (177) PLR
  2. Guru Nanak Dev University - Non recognition of a distance education mode was a matter of policy which the Court cannot interfere - It was the college which has the benefit of undertaking every application with lynxed eyes - It is bound to ensure that an admission which it gives to students does not come by any jeopardy by want of diligences on its part - In this case, it was surely an egregious error on the part of the college to allow the student the benefit of admission without specifically incorporating a condition even in the prospectus that degree from distance education University would not be recognized - College had allowed the admission to take place recklessly inspite of specific directive from the University - Cannot legitimize the result of the examination and secure to the petitioner a postgraduate degree in English - Would deny to the petitioner the benefit of degree, but would impose cost on the College of Rs.50,000/- to be paid to the petitioner for letting her waste two years of study.       (177) PLR
  3. Guru Nanak Dev University Act, 1969 (21 of 1969) S. 4(1) - Starting B.Com. LLB Course - Approval to seek for affiliation with the university - Bar Council of India recommendation - It is just not an answer that the University will not allow for a college to start the course, if it does not itself have the course in the main campus - Many colleges that are having diverse courses and even the very existence of several colleges have come about only by the fact that the University does not have the financial resources or manpower to start all the courses themselves and, therefore, they promote the cause of education by granting affiliation to college - It ought to recognize also that if the professional regulatory bodies like a Bar Council of India recommends certain courses, then it should keep pace with needs of time and exercise upon such recommendations to device syllabi for various courses and help the University to flourish through various college. Haryana Compassionate Assistance to the Dependents of Deceased Government Employees Rules, 2006, Rule 6 - Claim of the petitioner is founded on the strength of statutory Rules i.e. the 2006 Rules which were framed in exercise of the powers conferred under proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India - The right conferred upon the petitioner on the strength of such statutory provisions i.e. the 2006 Rules cannot be curtailed by the issuance of any subsequent executive instruction - The denial of ex-gratia monthly financial assistance to the petitioner under the 2006 Rules i.e. on account of a clarification dated 16.1.2009 cannot sustain.(177) PLR
