Mysore, Apr 29 ANI | 6 months ago

The city-based Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) has withdrawn its controversial notification, which was alleged to have been passed to facilitate Kannada and Culture Minister Umashree to take up study for a Ph D degree.

The decision was taken at the Board of Management meeting held yesterday.

Apart from passing a resolution that the cut off marks for eligibility must not be less than 50 per cent, it was also decided that the candidate applying for Ph.D must have passed graduation and post graduation from a recognised University.

Though Ms Umashree will not be able to realise her dream of getting a doctorate, it will not be applicable to former Minister and Chikkamagalur MLA C T Ravi, who too has applied for Ph D because he has completed post-graduation and has scored 56 per cent marks in the eligibility test.

To obtain post-graduation degree, it is essential that the candidate is a graduate.

However, as per the distance education rules, if a candidate has attained 21 years of age, he or she can appear directly for degree or post-graduation exams without any basic qualifications.

Hence, it was decided to extend this provision for Ph D also, which was widely criticised by the academic dicians.
