Chandigarh, November 19
The Punjab and Haryana High Court (HC) has rejected a candidate’s prayer for directions to Panjab University (PU) to take steps for conducting entrance test for LLM. The Bench, at the same time, granted the candidate the liberty to approach the respondent-university for the return of the examination fee.
The Bench of Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha and Justice Arun Palli asserted that the validity of the respondent-university’s decision to scrap the entrance examination and to allow admissions on the basis of marks obtained in the eligibility examination had been upheld by the High Court in the case of “Chiraag Malli versus Panjab University, Chandigarh, and others” and also in another connected matter.
“In the circumstances, the prayer of the petitioner for directing the respondent-university to hold the entrance examination deserves to be and is hereby rejected in terms of the decision of this court rendered in Chiraag Malli’s case,” the Bench added.
Disposing of the petition, the Bench took note of submission by the university counsel that the authorities would immediately process the petitioner’s application and take necessary steps pursuant to it in accordance with law in case he approached the PU for the fee refund.
