I have passed the MBA Degree through Distance Mode in May-2011 in Annamalai Univeristy. I am working in Public sector (central gov.) in Chennai. I have asked my Management to take my Degree for my further promotions and one time Educational Incentive also. However my HR dept denied my application. They said Annamali university's MBA is not recognized by Joint Committe (DEC/AICTE/UGC). I wrote 2 or 3 times to University through RTI ,but they dint' give proper reply. even though DEC also not given clear reply. I would like to know for Distance education joint Committe approval is required or not? particularly AICTE approve is necesary for DEC MBA/MCA I will attach all the details. ple clarify my problem.
