No technical education, engineering course through correspondence rules SC
The Supreme Court has ruled that there will be no technical education via correspondence.
The court also barred educational institutions from providing courses in subjects like engineering in the distance education mode.
The court affirmed the findings of the Punjab and Haryana High Court and also set aside an order of the Odisha High Court which had permitted technical education through correspondence.
The Punjab and Haryana HC had ruled that a degree in computer science obtained through correspondence could not be considered on par with the one attained by attending regular classes.
