Vikram Chandra v. Union Of India Thru' Secy. - WRIT - C No. 42460 of 2006  RD-AH 15534 (6 September 2006)
W.P.No. 42460 of 2006
Hon. S.N.Srivastava, J.
Heard learned counsel for the parties.
It appears from the record that the petitioner who is B.Tech with 55.4% marks sought admission in M. Tech course in Moti lal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad but he was denied admission on the ground that the Institute had prescribed that only those candidates who had obtained 60% or above marks in B.Tech shall be eligible for admission to M.Tech course in the Institute.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has drawn attention to the guidelines prescribed by IIT Kanpur in which minimum percentage for admission to M.Tech course has been pegged at 55%. When the learned counsel appearing for the Institute was confronted with the question as to how the Institute could fix 60% minimum marks in violation of guidelines of IIT Kanpur, he prayed for time to file supplementary affidavit justifying therein the basis for fixing minimum 60% marks for admission to M.Tech course.
Put up this matter day after tomorrow.
