The high court also said that they can continue this in full compliance of law till a final order is issued.

Earlier today, Khan had issued notices to Vice-Chancellors after they refused to send their resignation letters to him before 11.30 AM as per his directive on Sunday.

After Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan sought their resignations, the Kerala High Court on Monday held that Vice-Chancellors of nine universities can hold on to their posts until Chancellor issues a final order following show-cause notices to them.

The high court also said that they can continue this in full compliance of law till a final order is issued. The court was hearing petitions challenging governor’s order issued on Sunday evening.

Earlier today, Khan also issued notices to Vice-Chancellors after they refused to send their resignation letters to him before 11.30 AM as per his directive on Sunday.

Khan, who is also the chancellor of the nine universities in the state, disclosed this himself. “Now, they have refused to resign. Now formal notices have been issued”, Khan told a press conference here, PTI reported.

This comes amid a recent Supreme Court order quashed appointment of the vice chancellor (VCs) of APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University for being contrary to UGC regulation. After this Khan asked for the VCs to resign.

“Upholding the verdict of Hon’ble SupremeCourt dt 21.10.22 in Civil Appeal Nos.7634-7635 of 2022(@ SLP(c)Nos.21108-21109 of 2021), Hon’ble Governor Shri Arif Mohammed Khan has directed Vice Chancellors of 9 varsities in Kerala to tender resignation: PRO,KeralaRajBhavan,” the tweet, accompanied by a list of the varsities, said.
