New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today issued
a notice to prestigious Sri Ram College of Commerce here
seeking its response on alleged irregularities in the
admission process for undergraduate programme under the sports
quota.

A bench comprising Justices M C Garg and Ajit Bharihoke
asked the college to respond to the allegations of a student
that he was denied admission last year because of
irregularities in the admission process.

The court was hearing a petition filed by Abhishek
Chandran whose application for admission was not accepted last
year despite being first on the wait list and some other
candidate was admitted whose name did not figure in the list.
The petition, which was earlier heard by a single judge,
was dismissed on the ground that the admission process was
completed by that time.

The single bench had, however, said the college had not
been able to explain why a certain candidate who had not
figured on the merit list and wait list was given admission.

Advocate Sunil J. Mathews, appearing for the student who
is studying in another Delhi University college, contended the
entire process for admission under sports quota is illegal as
it is being handled by the college`s sports convener who does
not possess the proper qualifications according to UGC.

The court, after hearing his arguments, issued a notice
to the college, its sports convenor and the University of
Delhi to which SRCC is affiliated.

The court asked them to file their responses by the next
date of hearing and posted the matter for further hearing on
August 28.
