Varsity asked to file compliance report

Hearing a petition by Vasudha Sanklapur and others,  the division bench comprising Justice V Gopalagowda and Justice Nagarathna quashed the institute’s October 5 endorsement directing the students not to attend the classes.
The bench observed “Keeping open the issue whether to initiate contempt, we direct to permit the students attend the classes for the academic year 2009-10.”
The bench has also directed the institute to file compliance report and posted the matter to next week.

The High Court on September 29 had directed the university to admit the student selected through KEA. But the university had refused to admit students even after this and an endorsement was issued to the students directing them not to attend the classes and the petitioners had challenged the endorsement.

Misuse of NREGS funds
The High Court has ordered an emergent notice to the State and the Union Governments in connection with the alleged misuse of funds of National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) by Chaldiganahalli Gram Panchayat members in Srinivaspura taluk of Kolar district.

The petitioners had cited the High Court order in August 2009 directing for action against the Gram panchayat President Chandramma and Secretary Venkatesh, Executive Officer, Srinivasapura against the diversion of NREGS funds to construction of school compounds and drainages.

They submitted that the ZP Kolar was directed to take appropriate action against those reponsible for misuse of funds, but so far no action has been taken and after the disposal of the matter, a sum of Rs 15 lakhs was misused and are now planning to draw a sum of Rs 25 lakh to spend it as per their will and wish.
The division bench headed by Justice Gopalagowda has ordered emergent notice to the State and the Union Government, Zilla Panchayat, Kolar and others.
