New Delhi: Overruling a student’s petition related to the admission in Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi High Court has made a statement consolidating the rights of all universities. The court said each university has the right to set its own admission norms.

The High Court said the universities do have the responsibility of maintaining the quality education hence they are free to set admission norms as per the standards set by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

Earlier, a petition was filed by a student Sandeep Anand alleging the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University for fixing an average 55 percent in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics for admission in BTech.

He argued that a minimum 50 percent has been fixed by AICTE for admission in BTech.

While overruling the petition, Justice Kailash Gambhir said, “The Supreme Court has already supported all the universities for setting their own admission norms and it cannot be said wrong if those norms are feasible for students.”
