Student moves SC against scrapping of law entrance test by PU

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, December 2

A student from Chandigarh has moved the Supreme Court challenging the Punjab and Haryana High Court verdict dismissing her plea against scrapping the undergraduate law entrance test by Panjab University.

The university has instead decided to go ahead with admission to its five-year law course on the basis of marks obtained in Class XII considering the Covid-19 situation. The university authorities on October 2 scrapped the entrance examination for the five-year integrated course and the three-year law course for the 2020-21 session.

Assailing the November 16 verdict of the High Court, petitioner Shruti Nayar contended that the university scrapped the UGLAW “wrongly and illegally” and in violation of principles of natural justice.

To go for admissions based on Class XII examination results only was arbitrary and liable to be set aside.
