The Supreme Court, hearing a motion from former NLSIU Vice Chancellor Professor R Venkata Rao and a parent of the aspirant questioning the university’s decision to hold a separate entrance exam, said it was an important matter to be decided must.
A bench made up of Judges Ashok Bhushan, R. Subhash Reddy and M. R. Shah shared a notice with the university and its Vice Chancellor Professor Sudhir Krishnaswamy and sought an answer within three days and submitted the matter for further hearing on September 16.
The bank said that since the exam is scheduled to take place on Saturday, it can be taken but it will not allow results or student admission.
“We tend to share this. It is an important matter. It is a matter that needs to be decided,” the bank said during the hearing.
The plea described the holding of the separate examination as “an obviously arbitrary and unlawful decision”.
The NLSIU action has created unprecedented uncertainty and has placed an onerous burden and obligation on thousands of aspirants who are now unsure how to proceed in the future.
Such a unilateral decision to hold the National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT) as an entrance exam for university was made without consideration, completely affecting the students in the final lesson and putting their careers at risk for purely whimsical reasons.
The plea in law states that it is apparent from the decision of Vice Chancellor Professor Sudhir Krishnaswamy that the decision is aimed solely at the creation of an elite institution aimed at those who can afford to take the test while the aspirations of the Poor be totally ignored. marginalized and less privileged candidates.
The plea filed by attorney Vipin Nair states: Allegedly, respondent # 2 (Krishnaswamy) ‘s sole aim appears to be to transform respondent # 1 (NLSIU) from an island of excellence to an island of exclusion.
With the plea in law, the aim was to cancel the notification for admission to the five-year integrated BA, LLB (Hons.) Program 2020-21 with the press release on NLSIU admissions 2020-21 of September 4, 2020.
With the disputed notification, the surveyed university No. 1 directly violates the fundamental rights of students who wish to be admitted to the surveyed university, especially during the current and ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
At its 91st session, an executive council of the NLSIU unanimously authorized the university to develop an alternative admission procedure in the event that CLAT 2020 is postponed further due to the pandemic.
However, it is respectfully submitted that the Executive Board of the No. 1 University surveyed did not have such powers and therefore the meeting of the Executive Board for that purpose was said to be illegal and without basis under its own statutes as the plea.
After CLAT-2020 was further postponed to September 28, the NLSIU unilaterally and with obscene haste released the offending notice, stating that the admission process for the Undergraduate BA LL.B (Hons) program for Respondent No. 1 The university should be led through a newly established NLAT UG 2020 entrance examination.
The offending notice stipulates that the NLSIU will not accept the results of CLAT 2020 for admission to the 2020-21 academic year and an exam called NLAT will be conducted online.
The NLSIU’s sudden and capricious decision not only frenzied the CLAT 2020 aspirants and put them in a state of fear and confusion, it also seriously jeopardized the university’s position in the consortium. Due to the bizarre behavior of the university, the children are exposed to extreme pressure and psychological stress, it says in the plea.
