Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court on Monday allowed the Indian Nursing Council (INC) to publish a list of institutes on its website.
A division bench of the High Court, in an interim order, passed the direction on an appeal filed by several nursing institutes against the order of a single-judge bench.
The single-judge bench in July had held that INC had no authority to grant recognition to institutions that are conducting nursing courses in the state.
The single-judge bench had further restrained the INC from asking institutions to obtain recognition from it. Following the order, several institutes had filed an appeal.
The institutes argued before the single-judge bench that that as per law, INC has the authority to decide about qualification and other issues, while the state government and its affiliated Universities which have the right to grant recognition to institutions.
