In addition to current 2310 existing students, Delhi HC has directed the DU and faculty of law to admit additional 301 'supernumerary candidates' under the Persons with Disabilities (PWD), Children and Widows of Armed Forces (CW) and Foreign Nationals (FN) categories.
The court has passed an interim order on June 28 under which it allowed the DU to admit 2310 students for the current academic session but some students move to court and told that the DU and Law faculty erroneously included the supernumerary seats in 2310 seats.
“It is submitted that DU was required to admit 301 candidates in the reserved categories as supernumeraries over and above 2,310 seats,” a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said.
According to the bench DU submitted that it has been admitting 2310 students in Law Faculty for LLB course since May 2008. “It appears that this submission is incomplete… as the undisputed factual position placed before us is that since 2008 till 2015-16, DU was admitting 2,310 students as well as additional supernumerary candidates for the PWD/CW/FN categories,” it said.
