New Delhi: The Delhi
High Court Friday reserved its order on a petition alleging that
Guru Govind Singh Indraprashtha University (GGSIU) adopted
"discriminatory" approach towards students of colleges affiliated
After both the parties concluded their arguments over the petition
filed by 203 students of private colleges affiliated to the
university, a bench of acting Chief Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice
Rajiv Sahai Endlaw reserved its order.
Advocate Geeta Luthra, arguing on behalf of students, said the
colleges, run by the university, are allowed to give a maximum 40
percent marks to students in internal assessments while colleges
which are affiliated and not run by the university can give only a
maximum of 25 percent marks to students in internal assessments.
This practice was "irrational" and against legal principles, she
The students, pursuing professional courses like B.Tech, BBA,
BJ(MC) in affiliated colleges were being evaluated by the
university on the remaining 75 percent marks, she said.
"The students of university-run colleges are better placed as the
varsity can evaluate them on the rest 60 percent as the maximum
limit of internal assessment is 40 percent," she added.
