HC asks DU about procedure for sports quota admissions

New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Monday sought a response from the Delhi University on the procedure being followed in the admission process through sports quota, while hearing a plea seeking direction for the varsity to make the admission through this more streamlined and centralised.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath asked DU to file its response by August 17 on a plea by NGO Child Health Organisation.

The plea asked the court to direct DU to make the admission through sports quota more streamlined and centralised so that all the applicant get equal opportunity of getting admission. It further sought direction to devise a mechanism for coordination between colleges on the issue.

Rules regarding admission process of students applying under sports quota were flawed and there was no coordination between the colleges about the trials, said the petition, adding that tests for various colleges for same sports were scheduled for same day and almost same time.

“An individual seeking admission cannot attend two trials at the same time and on same date at different colleges. This plays a pivotal role in jeopardising the future plan of the meritorious students/players,” said the plea.
