It is intractable to the one stipulated in the varsity’s publication of data or statutory regulations. Delhi high court said such contradictory as well as deceitful criteria. It not only builds chaos in the minds of candidates but also instructs unwarranted litigation.

“…the Delhi High Court would like to observe that the University of Delhi needs to take quick offset measures in identifying as well as withdrawing all such material from its website. This remarks the eligibility bars for admission to any category. Opposite to the one stipulated in the bulletin of data or the statutory rules, principles, and ordinances of the university. For such contradictory and misleading standards not to build confusion in the minds of the candidates but also guides to unnecessary litigation.” Justice Vikas Mahajan said in an order handed on January 24.

The high court order overlooked a plea from a woman. She got a degree with BSc (H) in Biological Science from Delhi University.

What Does Plea Propose:

The plea said despite the petitioner having achieved 88.96 percent in BSc (H) Biological Science. She was not chosen for admission. While the candidates are chosen had a much down percentage – varying from 88.71 percent to 86.40 percent.


When the candidate enquired from the admission department. She figured out that she was not suitable for merit or entrance-based admission to the MSc Botany course. The prospectus provided eligibility credentials for BSc (H) Botany, which she did not possess.

The nominee proposed that she was fooled by the online application form for admission to MSc BotaWhich the merit-based type, the eligibility standards contained BSc (H) Biological Science. The high court ignored the plea declaring that given the legal as well as factual standing. It is beyond any cavil that the eligibility measures. It is said in the bulletin of statement 2022. It shall supervise the admission to the MSc Botany course under the merit category.

“The seeker cannot take benefit of, or shelter under, the inadvertent mistake. It has been dragged into the admission form open on the website. Such a blunder on part of the respondent university would not attire the petitioner. With any lawful right,” it said. It said the petitioner did not even strive for clarification from the university. As to which eligibility measures, the one given in the bulletin of information or that spoken of in the PG admission form, would apply.


Now after having unsuccessfully participated in the choosing process. The petitioner cannot turn around as well as challenge the criteria of admission provided in the bulletin of information. The court declared “In the recent case, the rules of the contest were not transformed midway. In particular, like the prior three years. The same standard was advised in the bulletin of information 2022. The said judgment, accordingly, does not advance the case of the petitioner. Provided the above, there is no merit in the written plea and, accordingly, the exact is dismissed,” the high court said.
