JNU TELLS HC- MANDATE FOR RESERVING 5% SEATS FOR PWD WAS NEVER VIOLATED

On Wednesday, the JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) told the Delhi High Court that the mandate of reserving 5% seats for the students who are disabled was never violated. The University also told the Court that they were providing all the courses for the academic year 2020-21.

A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan had issued a notice to the University on June 11. This notice was issued on a plea which claimed that JNU was keeping a smaller number of seats than the recommended 5% for the disabled students in the new academic year. The submission was made in an affidavit before the bench.

JNU had filed its affidavit through the standing counsel of the Central government, Monika Arora. In its affidavit, the University has denied the allegations against it. It has made clear that there is a reservation for 5% of seats for persons with disabilities (PWD).
