    Hello candidate,

    The University from where you have done your B.Com (//B.Com) has been declared invalid, but you have to get proper analysis of the ruling.

    Thus, you reach out to some lawyers and discuss about the effect of this ruling, whether it applies retrospectively i.e, the degrees which have been already given will they stand nullified or is it just that after being declared as invalid the University cannot give out degrees.
