THE Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the University Grant Commission’s policy for fixing eligibility criteria for candidates to quality- the National Eligibility Test (NET), saying it is not “arbitrary and illegal”.
A bench, headed by Justice K S Radhakrishnan. said courts shall not interfere in matters of education unless there Is a violation of statutory provisions and it is open to the UGC to lay down any qualifying criteria.
“We are of the view that in academic matters unless there is a clear violation of statutory provisions, regulations or the notification issued. the courts shall keep their hands off since those issues fall within the domain of the experts”.
