The Delhi High Court on Monday, June 10th, sought to know the stand of the centre and the Delhi University on a plea challenging its new admission norms for undergraduate courses.

The court was reported by PTI as saying, there is an arbitrariness in how the criteria were amended just a day before opening of registration for admission.

The plea by a lawyer, Charanpal Singh Bagri, claimed that the varsity’s decision to amend the criteria at the last moment was in violation of the principle of natural justice.

The petition has sought quashing of the amended eligibility criteria and that the students be allowed to apply as per the earlier criteria.

The DU commenced registration for admission on May 30th, 2019 and will close on June 14th.

The court has asked the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), represented by advocate Brajesh Kumar and the varsity to file their replies to the plea by June 14th, the next date of hearing.

Students have been caught unaware as the eligibility criteria for some courses have been changed.

This year the DU entrance exam is to be conducted by NTA (National Testing Agency). The registration process of the university delayed due to finalisation of exam conducting agency.

DU is the second government university, which has given the authorisation to NTA for conduction of their university exam. JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) was the first one to do that.
