St. Stephen's College directed to admit Girl on Revaluation Marks Basis

The Delhi High Court has directed St.Stephen's College here to reserve a seat in the Economics stream in case of vacancy for a girl student who failed to make it to the merit list but later made the grade after re - checking of her answer - sheets by the Central Board of Secondary Education.

Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw passed the direction on a petition by the girl seeking a direction to the college to admit her in the course. The petitioner, Jalnidh Kaur, had obtained 94 per cent marks in Class XII examinations and placed among the best five students in the humanities in terms of marks obtained.

She, however, failed to qualify for admission by 0.2 per cent. Thereafter, she went for re - checking of her answer sheets which resulted in an increase of her marks by 2 per cent making her eligible for admission. However, the college refused to admit her when she approached it afresh saying that it had closed admissions. Thereafter, she approached the Court.

The Court also issued notices to Delhi University, CBSE and the Union Government seeking their replies to the petition by 23rd July, 2010, the next date of hearing.

The Court also observed that there appeared to be no rules in the university to deal with cases of re - checking. In the absence of any provision of admission for students who become eligible after revision of their marks, the entire exercise of rechecking loses meaning, the Court further observed.
