The Supreme Court told that High Courts should not allow admissions in colleges which are lacking requisite approvals. The orders came when Bombay High Court allowed private dental colleges to admit the students on their own risk and said "such interim orders in admission matters should not be passed when an institution lacks the requisite approval."
A vacation bench of the Bombay High Court, on 31 March 2016, stayed the decision of the government when it asked the college to run PG courses because it lacked infrastructure and teaching faculty. The decision was taken by the government on the basis of report submitted by DCI.
Setting the High Court order aside, Supreme Court said "It is perspicuous that the court should not pass such interim orders in the matters of admission, more so, when the institution had not been accorded approval."
"Such kind of interim orders are likely to cause chaos, anarchy and uncertainty. And, there is no reason for creating such situations. There is no justification or requirement. The high court may feel that while exercising power under Article 226 of the Constitution, it can pass such orders with certain qualifiers as has been done by the impugned order, but it really does not save the situation," it said.
The Supreme Court also said that allowing the institution to admit students on its own risk can invite chaotic situations in the future and it is not fair to the students. Setting the High Court order side Supreme Court said that it is "absolutely unsustainable."
