High Court reprimanded Delhi University, said – you are not special, this is the whole matter

DU Law Admission Case in High Court: A new development has come to the fore in the Delhi University Law Admission Case. The High Court has given DU a few days time to present its explanation and in return the university has also assured the court that admissions in law courses will not start till the matter is decided. DU’s decision to give admission in law course on the basis of CLAT score has been challenged in the court by a student. Hearing is going on on this issue.

what is the matter

To get down to the bottom of the matter, the issue is that DU recognizes the CLAT i.e. Common Law Admission Test 2023 score for admission to the five-year law course. While the student who filed the petition says that when CUET i.e. Central University Admission Test is taken for admission in UG course, then separate examination should not be conducted for admission in law course. On the basis of CUET only admission should be given in law course.

what happened in the hearing

In the hearing held in this case, the High Court reprimanded Delhi University and said, ‘You are not special. There is a national policy and if 18 other central universities of the country are relying on CUET score for admission then why is DU not doing the same. The court has given some time to the Central Government Council to reply in this matter.

Now when will be the hearing

DU also accepted in the court that till the decision on this issue is not taken, the admission in law course in DU will remain pending. The next hearing of the court is to be held on 25 August. This PIA has been filed by Prince Singh, a student of DU’s Law Faculty. They say that the university should only consider the CUET score for admission.

what is the side of the petitioner

It has been said in the petition that when the UGC has clarified that admission in UG courses will be done on the basis of CUET score, then why CLAT score is being made the basis of admission in DU’s five-year law course. CLAT is conducted only in English while CUET is conducted in 13 languages. In such a situation, it becomes more difficult for the candidates to clear CLAT. This is discrimination against law students.
