Admissions in Colleges Lacking Approval: Shouldn't Be Allowed, Says Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of India has taken a strong note of the judgement given by Bombay high court as declaring the whole order to be "absolutely unsustainable". The apex court's verdict came while setting aside a Bombay High Court order allowing a dental college to admit students in PG courses at its own "risk" and said that such interim orders in admission matters should not be passed when an institution lacks the requisite approval.


"Such kind of interim orders are likely to cause chaos, anarchy and uncertainty. And, there is no reason for creating such situations. There is no justification or requirement. The high court may feel that while exercising power under Article 226 of the Constitution, it can pass such orders with certain qualifiers as has been done by the impugned order, but it really does not save the situation,"


The court strictly ordered the high courts not to pass any similar judgements thus putting the career of any student at risk. The supreme court took cognizance of the fact that there are several students who have taken the admission in PG courses in 2016-17 shall now be allowed to study but from next academic session i.e. 2017-18 they shall be adjusted in new academic institutions for further studies.

The court gave directions for the next academic sessions have also directed the college to deposit Rs. 30 Lac before the court registry within eight weeks to ensure the guarantee of following the compliance.The matter is now subjected to be heard on 3rd week of July 2017 for checking the status of compliance and giving further guidelines. The college was also warned not to cover the cost incurred from students.
