On Monday, the Delhi High Court sought to know the stand of the Centre and DU on a plea challenging its new admission criteria for an undergraduate course. The bench of justice Anu Malhotra and Talwant Singh said that there was arbitrariness because of amending the criteria just a day before the opening of registration for admission. The observation of the bench came while hearing a plea by lawyer Charanpal Singh Bagri who claimed the varsity’s decision to amend the criteria at the last moment was in violation of the principle of natural justice.
There was a lot of hues and cry on the internet against the amended norms and observed that it would be appropriate if students had also joined the petitioner.
