The Madras High Court has imposed cost of Rs 10000 to the Controller of examination of Anna University for denying permission for a student to write her fourth semester exam.


Justice S Nagamuthu also quashed the impugned order of the University denying permission for the candidate to write her fourth semester M E examination and imposed the cost on the University for causing agony to the petitioner.

R Rajalakshmi submitted she completed BE(Electronics and Communication)in 2009 and worked as a lecturer in Meenakshi Ramasamy Polytechnic College at Udayarpalayam from November 9, 2009 to Apr 30, 2010.

However, the college has issued the service certificate as if she had worked in the Meenakshi Ramasamy Engineering College, run by the same management. And it was mentioned that she was relieved from the college on July 15, 2010.

Then she joined in ME (Communication System)in the academic year 2010-2011 at Saranathan College of Engineering in Tiruchy.

The Controller of Examinations of Anna University, Tiruchy, has issued her a communication, stating that a complaint has been received by them that the petitioner is working as a regular faculty and pursuing full time post graduate course simultaneously in the college affiliated to the University.

She appeared before the enquiry committee on Sept 24, 2011 with the relevant documents and explained that she has relieved from the service prior to the date of joining in the ME course.

The University rejected the explanation and changed her full time enrollment to part time and the duration of the study was extended for two more semester and she was also prevent from continuing the third semester in the academic year and was directed to seek readmission in the third semester programme.

Aggrieved by this, the petitioner approached the Court and obtained an order for allowing her to write her third semester exam. But the University withheld the exam results of the petitioner for the third semester.

The petitioner was also issued with a hall ticket for the fourth semester. Hence she pleaded the court to grant stay to the impugned order passed by the University.
