Calcutta HC Stays NUJS’s Decision To Stop Online Courses For Those Already Enrolled
The Calcutta High Court has stayed the notice cancelling online courses offered by the NUJS’s in collaboration with private parties, for students who had enrolled themselves before June 27, 2018.
The Calcutta High court was hearing a petition filed by three students of an online course offered by NUJS. They had paid for the course only to be informed later that the courses had been “suspended till further orders”.
A circular dated June 27, signed by assistant registrar Tapash Bhattacharya said that “all future activities pertaining to Distance Education and Online courses should be put on status quo, except those which are purely University initiatives”. It added that “any person enrolling for these courses would be doing it at their own risk and the University shall not be held responsible for such matters”.
