Delhi High Court rejects student’s petition
Delhi High Court has dismissed petition filed by a Delhi University (DU) student, Bhim Shankar making it mandatory for the students to produce original documents at the time of counseling. 
 
The petitioner appealed to accept his degree certificate and grant him admission in LLB course for 2016-2017 session. 
 
The court has said that if a student fails to produce required documents at time of counseling, university has full right to deny admission. 
 
The student, who graduated in 2012, appeared for LLB entrance examination and secured rank 767 in the OBC category, after which he was asked to produce documents at the time of counseling, which he couldn’t do because he did not collect the degree from Meerut University.
 
As a result, he was denied admission by the University of Delhi, however, he later approached DU to submit the degree but by the time, the counseling was over and hence it was rejected.
 
The student appealed to grant him admission on the basis of his ranking but the court made it mandatory for the candidates to report with the documents in original at the specified date and time for counseling.
