NEW DELHI: Delhi High Court sought the response of St. Stephen’s College and Delhi University on a plea seeking direction to the college to take admission on its ‘unreserved seats’ in undergraduate courses only based on marks received by students in the common university entrance test (CUET)
A bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Sachin Datta issued notice to St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University, and University Grants Commission (UGC) on the petition filed by a law student. The next date of hearing is on July 6.
