Delhi HC reserves order on plea challenging DU admission process

New Delhi, (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Monday reserved its order on a bunch of pleas by students of other state education boards challenging Delhi University’s method for calculating cut-offs for admission in various colleges under it and seeking a uniform admission system.

Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw reserved his order after hearing arguments from DU and petitioners who have challenged a varsity notification for calculating cut-offs for admission in various colleges under it.

The petitions were filed by students who qualified from the Kerala, Punjab, Rajasthan and Haryana state boards and faced a deduction of 10 percent in their best-of-four marks at the time of calculating the cut-offs.

One of the plea was filed by DU aspirant Thabassum Ahammad N.K., of Kerala, complaining that each college here has different criteria for calculating cut-off marks of students from other state boards during the admission process and seeking a uniform system of admission.

Ahammed’s plea said he scored 100 percent marks in best of four subjects but was denied admission as per Delhi University’s provisions of deducting 10 percent from his total marks as Kerala State Education Board has a different evaluation pattern from that of the Central Board of Secondary Education.
