Hello,

If UGC passes any order thereupon invalidating your wifes degree then file a Writ Petition in the High Court and seek appropriate order.

Just because it is regular now, the previous degree cannot be declared invalid!
You need to get a detailed response before approaching the court of law for remedy.

Hi
Please check that the university was carrying out regular course at the when your wife completed the degree.
If you face any problem in job then go ahead for filing a writ in High Court for saving the job.
You will get justice.
Thank You

If this report is affecting your wife, she may choose to challenge the same before the High Court and seek it's quashment.

Once having already validated the degree of your wife, it is strange how UGC resided from its stand. 

Take your chance by approaching the High Court.

1. Your wife can file a writ petition in the High Court to not to recognize the decree.

2. Merely because the university is not conducting the regular course now it does not invalidate the degree.

Dear Sir,

Such situations arise in many cases in respect of many courses conducted by Open Universities and other institutions. In such cases the aggrieved candidates have to approach Hon'ble High Court for appropriate direction.

When you have the RTI you don't have to worry. The weightage of your wife's degree will not affect. The RTI will prevail.

If you have the reply given by UGC obtained through RTI secured, you can file a writ before high court seeking the releif of validity of the degree obtained from the said college etc.

Filing a writ petition before high court may fetch you the desired relief.
