HC to hear plea seeking 'priority admission' for Delhi students in DU
New Delhi [India], July 17 (ANI): The hearing will continue on Monday in Delhi High Court on plea seeking priority in admission criteria for Delhi domiciled students in Delhi University.
Response on this matter has already been sought from the Vice Chancellor.
The Delhi High Court on May 24 issued notice to Centre, the Delhi Government and the University of Delhi on a plea seeking preference in admission to the Delhi University for students who are Delhi domiciled.
Member of Parliament from Delhi Parvesh Verma and Delhi Assembly member Manjinder Singh Sirsa on May 17 met Delhi University (DU) Vice-Chancellor (V-C) Yogesh Tyagi and told him how various students of Delhi were forced to pay large amount of money to the private universities in other states for admission as they don't get admission in the DU.
The two political leaders urged the Vice Chancellor to fix the 70 percent quota for Delhi students or to give at least 3 to 5 percent grace marks to Delhi students as it was "their constitutional right to be able to have access to higher education at a reasonable cost."
Earlier even AAP had urged the VC to look into a similar proposal, but it was then rejected by the university.
Sirsa, the newly elected Rajouri Garden MLA, had earlier in a statement issued stated that students from neighbouring states were getting seats in Delhi colleges solely 'due to the liberal markings' while their Delhi counterparts were unable to do so 'due to the strict marking system'. (ANI)
