The supreme court of India has asked Delhi High Court to reckon a plea that was filed by St. Stephen College of Delhi University. Delhi HC plea asked St. Stephen College to follow the admission policies of the University of Delhi.
Last year, on 12 September, the Delhi High Court asked Christian minority institutions to pursue the admission policy which was decided by the Delhi University. According to this policy, admissions were only provided based on the Common University Entrance Test (CUET).
The Delhi High Court also said that St. Stephen College is not able to perform any kind of interview for non-minority category students. Moreover, they also confirmed that admissions are granted only based on CUET Score.

B.R.Gavai and J.B.Pardiwala are members of the court and purified that the High Court is working on this matter properly. They said that “We confirmed that the high court will be liberal in this case and proceed with a further hearing for admission under minority quota.”
“It is a minority opinion that since the matter pertains to admissions for the present academic year, the High Court would consider the same with requisite urgency,” they added.
St. Stephen’s College said at the hearing that the High Court had postponed the hearing on the plea because the top court was preoccupied with the case.
Justice Gawai stated, “Let the Delhi High Court decide then.” The Delhi High Court’s order asking St. Stephen College to strictly adhere to Delhi University’s admissions requirements had earlier refused to be stayed by the Supreme Court.
