HC seeks Centre, DU response on new admission criteriaThe Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked Centre and Delhi University to file reply on two separate applications challenging varsity’s new eligibility criteria for admission in undergraduate courses.

The other petitioner, Manas Shukla, has requested the court to direct authorities concerned to implement the eligibility criteria followed by the DU in the last three consecutive years.

Shukla’s petition was heard by a Division Bench of justices Anu Malhotra and Talwant Singh while Khushi plea was heard by a single judge bench of Justice Anu Malhotra.

The court has listed both the cases for hearing on June 14, when it will also hear another petition seeking similar relief.

All the three petitions have sought quashing of the amended eligibility criteria for applying admission in undergraduate commerce and economics honours courses.

On Monday, responding to a plea filed by lawyer Charanpal Singh Bagri challenging the new eligibility norms, the court said that there was arbitrariness in amending the criteria.

As per new norms, 50 per cent marks in Mathematics in class 12 is mandatory for applying for admission in undergraduate commerce courses, which was not followed earlier, the advocate said.

Earlier B.Com honours and Economics honours, the two course at DU, required Maths as a subject in Class 12, however, it was not necessary to include it in the best of four subjects, but securing passing marks was a must.
