The Supreme Court Wednesday said the process of admissions and consequent examinations in unrecognized private educational institutions has become a “vicious circle”.
“This has become a vicious circle. They don’t get recognition. By provisional orders of the court they give admissions and then by yet another provisional order they hold examinations,” said the vacation bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice R.M. Lodha and Justice A.K. Patnaik.
“This is a design that can’t be permitted,” Justice Lodha told petitioner Ansh College of Education and others’ counsel J.S. Malik.
In the instant case, Gwalior-based Ansh College of Education run by Aryan Foundation Trust and eight other institutions conducting B.Ed courses had moved the apex court to direct the Jiwaji University Gwalior to allow their B.Ed students to appear in annual examination.
Declining to give relief on their petition, Justice Lodha said: “We will dismiss it and let the (aggrieved) students come.”
Justice Patnaik said: “This is something not understandable. The institutions which can’t admit students admit them on the strength of provisional orders.”
He said that the “institute whose status is in dispute can’t admit students”.
Malik said that annual examination for the regular students were starting June 29, but the court declined to give any relief saying that it (the application for relief) could at best be tagged with the matter coming up for hearing July 20.
