Viney Mittal, J. (Oral)
The petitioner sought admission to B.Ed Course for the academic session 2006-07. She consequently applied for the Common Entrance Test. On the declaration of the result of Common Entrance Test, the petitioner got 7322nd
rank by obtaining 101 marks out of 200 marks.
She was required to appear for counseling as per her rank on October 17,
2006. It is claimed by the petitioner that on the aforesaid date she could not appear for counseling as she had given birth to a girl child in a Hospital at New Delhi. However, on behalf of the petitioner, her father, Mr. Sawant Kumar appeared before the counseling authority along with all the original documents. However, the request made by the father of the petitioner was C.W.P NO.17339 OF 2006 2
not entertained by the counseling authority and it was explained that the petitioner was required to appear herself. It is in these circumstances, that the petitioner has now approached this Court claiming that she was unable to appear in the counseling on the aforesaid date as she had given birth to a female child on the same date and, therefore, she be now ordered to be admitted to any one of the colleges where seats are still lying vacant.
Dr. Balram K. Gupta, learned senior counsel appearing for the respondent-University has stated that even if the claim of the petitioner that the seats are still lying vacant and she was unable to appear because of the fact as noticed above is considered, still University has already completed the process of counseling and remaining seats which are still lying vacant are to be filled up by the various Colleges at their own level. Sh. Gupta states that University has no objection, if the petitioner, keeping in view the peculiar facts and circumstances of this case, is permitted to participate in the counseling process which is to be held by the private colleges where the seats are still lying vacant.
The aforesaid statement made by Sh. Balram K. Gupta, learned senior counsel fully satisfies Mr. S.N Yadav, learned counsel appearing for the petitioner.
Consequently, the present petition is disposed of with a liberty to the petitioner to approach any of such colleges where the seats are still lying vacant for B.Ed course. If the petitioner so applies and participates in the counseling process in the aforesaid college, then her claim for admission shall be considered in accordance with law.
A copy of this order be given dasti under the signatures of the Special Secretary attached to the Bench.
