Don't appoint teachers to non-teaching jobs, high court orders govt

The High Court of Karnataka on Monday directed the state government not to appoint teachers to non-teaching jobs.

Justice Vineet Kothari gave the order while dismissing the petition filed by R Rajanna, Registrar, University of Mysore, against his transfer. Dr Rajanna had contended that he was moved out without any notice being issued to him. He is a professor and heads the Department of History in the university. A KAS officer was posted as registrar in his place.

Justice Kothari ruled that teachers should show their talent in teaching and leave clerical jobs to the non-teaching staff.

Report on gold mining
The high court on Monday granted four more months to the Mineral Exploration Corporation Ltd (MECL) to submit its report with regard to the possibilities of gold excavation in Karnataka.

Hearing a company petition filed by the Board for Industrial & Financial Reconstruction (BIFR), Justice L Narayanaswamy passed an order directing MECL to expedite the process.

The Union government and Bharat Gold Mines Limited submitted to the court that the Ministry of Mines had sought a report from MECL on whether to float global tenders for excavating for gold or to take up the excavation work on its own.

MECL, during the hearing, submitted that it was to submit its report in nine months of which six months have already elapsed. MECL sought another four months more to submit its report. The judge granted time to MECL and adjourned the next hearing by four months.

Info on ‘Khulanama’
The high court has sought details on the validity of “certification of divorce” — Khulanama — issued by an Islamic court. Justice Ashok B Hinchigeri issued notice to marriage officer, Banashankari sub-registrar office, the district registrar and the inspector general of registration and commissioner of stamps in a petition challenging the refusal to register a marriage under the Special Marriage Act, 1854.

Saba Rahmani, a resident of Chikkallasandra, had challenged the rejection by the marriage officer to register her marriage with a Hindu man.

Saba had ended her first marriage and had received a Khulanama (divorce through mutual consent) issued by the Islamic Court and Masjid Trust in Mysuru.

When Saba produced her Khulanama to the marriage officer, he rejected it. The judge sought details and adjourned the next hearing to June 27.
