New Delhi [India], Mar. 16 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Thursday dismissed a plea challenging Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) adoption of a UGC notification which had mandated that a professor can't guide more than three M.Phil and eight Ph.D scholars at any given point of time. The JNU had submitted that they were bound to implement the notification in accordance with UGC guidelines and the notification was the notification was issued for maintaining minimum standards of education and ensuring varsities do not become factories for mass production of degree holders. The plea was filed by a group of students, alleging that the teacher to student ratio was already low in the university and the implementation of this notification would've implied adverse effects on academics.
