The BCI submitted a representation to the court regarding their inspection of the faculty carried out on June 6 this year. It said that the promises made by the varsity regarding appointment of teachers had yet not been fulfilled. Moreover, in its representation, the BCI stated that the building requires additional rooms.
It is to be noted that the Dean of the Faculty of Law Prof Ved Kumari earlier stated that she was quite optimistic about the inspection carried out by the BCI and felt that they were happy with what they saw.
Replying to the PIL filed by Sukhija, the BCI representation said that the fact that 2310 students were admitted last year cannot be the foundation for admitting the same strength of students this year as well.
Ultimately, the representation concluded that the decision of reducing the seats was justified.
The Bench of Justices Manmohan and Vinod Goel observed,
“ The Delhi University has always been admitting 2,310 students. They are not coming to the court with this number for the first time .”
The Court said that it would need more time to deal with the issue, but for the time being, the same number of students would be admitted to the law course.
Speaking to the press, the petitioner Sukhija said,
“ I am happy with the order. I have been saying since the beginning that DU’s law course is the only quality law course for graduates in and around the national capital territory. Private colleges charge excessive fee which cannot be afforded by every law aspirant .”
He also said that the Court agreed that the law course taught by DU’s Law Faculty was one of the best.
The matter will be next heard on August 21.
