KSOU degree: HC orders notice to govt, KPSC

The High Court of Karnataka on Monday ordered notices to principal secretary, primary and secondary education department and Karnataka Public Service Commission in a petition challenging derecognition of BEd degree granted from the Karnataka State Open University (KSOU).

The petitioners, Ninganagoud Patil and Vishwanath G Hulasadar have contended that they completed their BEd degree from KSOU.

The Karnataka Residential Educational Institutions Society rejected their application for the post of principal citing the public notice issued by the government in 2014 derecognising BEd course from KSOU.

Justice Ashok B Hinchigeri ordered notice and adjourned the hearing.

Lack of police stations
The High Court on Monday orally observed that lack of police stations in the City has delayed the investigation into cases leading to pendency.

Justice A V Chandrashekara made the observation while hearing a criminal matter. The judge noted that many of the cases were pending at the investigation stage for several years.

Veto power challenged
The High Court on Monday ordered notice to the State government, BBMP and BBMP restructuring committee in a petition questioning the constitutional validity of sub-section 13H(7) of the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976.

The petitioner, Muralidhar G Rao has contended that the veto power contained conferred by Section 13H(7) of the Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act is against the Constitutional provisons.

“The veto power gives the elected corporators unimaginable powers to pass a final order which is un-appealable.  This prevents the object of part IXA of the constitution through the 74th amendment,” the petitioner claimed.

  A division bench comprising acting Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice B V Nagarathna ordered notice and adjourned the hearing.
