Govt move apex court to challenge high court order
The state government of Gujarat decided to challenge the decision of the Gujrat high court of invalidate admissions in professional engineering courses.
The state government of Gujarat decided to challenge the decision of the Gujrat high court of invalidate admissions in professional engineering courses. On Tuesday, the Gujrat high court ruled that the Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) has calculated wrong the percentile marks.
After the decision was out, government has felt that starting the admission process afresh will take almost a month hence decided to challenge against the high court decision. The government has decided to take the issue to the supreme court.
On Tuesday, issued release by the state government stated that following the order of high court means that the colleges have to refund the admission fees of 55,ooo students who have completed their admission till now and to start the admission process again which take almost a month.
This decision of high court violated the order of the supreme court that states the admission to different professional engineering courses should be ended till 31 July 2013 as starting admissions again will take almost four weeks to complete.
From the recent year, new method of normalization process has been introduced by ACPC for filling the seats of the premium engineering institutes. Under normalization process, the common merit list will be prepared by the central board and other admission committees. No board will get an advantage over the other was the main aim of the normalization process. The Indian Statistical Institute was responsible to derive the formula to normalize the marks.
