Faridabad, Haryana, India
My name is Anuj Saxena. I have passed graduation in BSc(IT) from KUVEMPU University in 2008 by distance mode, along with a diploma in GNIIT from NIIT. This course is a collaborated program between NIIT and KUVEMPU University, Shimoga (Karnataka) where NIIT enrolls students for GNIIT diploma and provide a graduate degree by distance mode of BSc(IT) from KUVEMPU University by lateral entry after completion of pre decided semesters of GNIIT according to norms of KUVEMPU University. I enrolled for this course in August, 2005, where I was told about the above procedure. After completing my two semesters or one year of education in NIIT in June, 2006 I asked about admission in BSc(IT) as I was told that BSc(IT) would start after completing minimum two semesters of GNIIT course. But I was further told that if I complete further one more semester of GNIIT then I would be eligible for admission in fourth semester of BSc(IT) by lateral entry which was ideally should have been completed by December, 2006 but due to non-availability of faculty for third semester course whole program got delayed and completed in March 2007. After that, I enrolled for BSc(IT) course from KUVEMPU University, Shimoga (Karnataka) in fourth semester by lateral entry as per norms of KUVEMPU University. NIIT centre was the study centre for BSc(IT) course where I completed 4th, 5th & 6th semesters of BSc(IT) in 2008 in examinations of November, 2008. Degree for BSc(IT) was awarded to me in 2010. Afterwards, I started looking out for job. Although GNIIT program was job-oriented was no job assistance or placement was given by NIIT to me. I worked at several places during the course of five-six years i.e., from Jan, 2009 to July, 2014 but was not able to get a satisfying job after which I decided to continue further studies from a reputed institute by regular mode so that I could get campus placement from the institute so I enrolled in DAV Institute of Management, Faridabad to pursue MBA which is affiliated by Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak after confirming my all details to them and continuously asking whether my graduate degree is valid for admission or not. I submitted all the required documents with MDU for admission like mark sheets, degree, fees of one semester in August, 2014. I was told to submit migration certificate as well which I submitted with a fine of ₹600 in September, 2014. After evaluating my documents till two months, University cancelled my admission and called me not eligible stating reason that- "BSC(IT) programme offered by KUVEMPU University is not recognized by DEC(Distance Education Council)" just two weeks before University exams of MBA Semester- 1 in November, 2014. I tried to contact KUVEMPU University continuously 10 days which no one replied, I contacted my local study centre of NIIT regarding this and no proper resolution for this problem was provided to me. I contacted Distance Education Bureau which was earlier DEC and they stated that my course is invalid and hence they cannot do anything. I tried to convince MDU to at least allow me to give exams for semester 1 (without providing any marksheet or any other document ) for which I paid fees as they do not refund fees as per their policies so that I could get value for money I paid but they refused for that as well. Now my whole academic session year is wasted, also the fees money is wasted and the degree which I have for BSc(IT) becomes VOID as DEB stated to me. So in whole process who is at fault me who conducted such stupid course of NIIT which ruined my career and life with which I am now able for nothing or KUVEMPU University who provided degree without approval by DEC or MDU who after taking fees of one semester called me ineligible as their academic bulletin which was drafted in July, 2014 by them didn't include name of graduation course I conducted but this refusal must come from them at the time of my taking admission there before submitting fees. After such incidents if students commit suicides or fall prey to bad companies like becoming terrorists etc then who should be blamed for this? Parents pay high fees for the future of their children in such expensive times and still their students are actually not employable or able to earn anything out of the course they pursue then what should such students do?.

Hi, Anuj248 & all, I too have passed graduation in BSc(IT) not lateral complete 3 yrs and 6 semesters from KUVEMPU University in 2016 as I got instruction from NIIT that I have to complete all the 6 semesters of BSC(IT) from KU by distance mode, along with a diploma in GNIIT in the year 2016 from NIIT, Panbazar, Guwahati, Assam. After completion I applied for MCA in Cotton University, Guwahati, Assam and got selected in selection list. But at the time of admission they denied me admission in MCA citing that KU is not recognised.
i am now confused that can we apply for government job or do regular higher education in other recognised University?
I am in a great tension. I have done the same. Currently I am preparing for government jobs. Will there be any problem at document verification? Please someone reply. I am depressed.

Hope this will work. In 2016 I filled rti in response to this they said check ugc website for university recognition and state boundary restriction dated year 2013 and according to u did before 2013 so that rule not applicable to you. As per high court of Guwahati all degrees are valid if done till 2012. Update me further information.

File a PIL in Orissa high court and in meantime tell your family member to visit Deb office regarding your matter.
Ajay Anand Sinha's reply, Feb 15, 2019
Can you tell me in which year you enrolled in KU and when u had ur final semester exam??? So that I'll provide u all d supporting documents.
in the year 2008 i enrolled with KU and completed the program in MAY 2010
Ajay Anand Sinha's reply, Feb 15, 2019
Call DEB once again tell when u enrolled and had ur final exam and during that period university had the permission from IGNOU to operate behind state boundary.
As per ugc rule in 2009 they said that university can't operate beyond boundary but if applied before the rule applies then till final result it is valid. I m providing u the images of that. I advice u to consult a lawyer for this.
