New Delhi: The Supreme Court today voiced
its anguish over the trend in the country where all types of
irregularities are regularised and murder convicts pardoned.
"In this country all types of irregularities are
regularised, murder convicts are pardoned, irregular
appointments are made regular, and illegal constructions
regularised," Justice G S Singhvi, who was heading the
vacation bench, said.
The bench also comprising Justice C K Prasad made this
observation while dealing with a bunch of applications filed
by managements of certain private Ayurvedic colleges from
Maharashtra which had sought approval of their admission
The colleges had moved the apex court as the Central
Council of Indian Medicine had declined to grant approval for
the admissions conducted during 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 as
they allegedly failed to fulfill the required standards.
The apex court pointed out that the situation in the
country has reached such a pathetic state that even the once
highly respected All India Council of Technical Education
(AICTE) was today under cloud.
"Today the situation is such that High Courts are forced
to regulate admissions in the colleges. We must have a
regulatory mechanism to these type of problems. Because there
are people today who have enough money to engage the best
legal brains in the country to prolong trial endlessly," the
