HC stays finalisation of BSc students’ list

Chandigarh, October 15

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today directed that the finalisation of candidates’ list for admission to six-year BSc (Hons) agriculture course at Gurdaspur Institute of Agriculture be kept in abeyance.

The direction came on a petition filed against Punjab Agricultural University and another respondent by Jasnimrat Kaur and other petitioners through counsel Kapil Kakkar and Shreesh Kakkar. They contended the petitioners, after participating in the agriculture aptitude test, had been ranked higher in merit than the persons granted provisional allotment at the institute only on the ground that they had not opted for Gurdaspur.

The Bench was told the candidates were required to list priority for admission to the course. There were only two options available — Bathinda and Gurdaspur. The petitioners opted for Bathinda as top priority. But that did not mean they had opted out of consideration for the Gurdaspur institute. — TNS
