The Delhi HC said that DU admissions would be affected by the outcome of new rules made by CBSE for re-evaluation this year. This may be a good news for many DU aspirants who might get a chance to make through the university after re-evaluation.
A bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar said that this can lead to change in merit position of students who had applied for re-evaluation, thus making them eligible for admission to DU. It shall be the responsibility of DU to inform all the colleges as well as the students seeking admission about the court’s order and the ongoing re-evaluation process by CBSE on the desire of some of the students , the bench further added.
The court’s direction came after a 2014 observance of a case when a student despite having an increase of 2% in his marks after re-evaluation was denied admission in Shri Ram College of Commerce. The bench came to a conclusion that re- evaluation is meaningless if students are not benefitted from it. Also taking into consideration the 2010 high court judgement this particular bench has come to a conclusion that this verdict might prove useful because DU gives admissions till the last cut off list is announced.
Though the verdict has come a bit a late but the re-evaluation students still stands a chance to get admission under the vacant seats announced by the university. Notices have been sent to the centre, CBSE and the Delhi University about the plea with an intention of seeking their replies within 10 days . The matter has been fixed for further hearing on July 26. The final verdict of the court in this case will affect the admissions of CBSE students this year.
