Bombay High Court has banned hundreds of engineering students in ATKT (allowed to keep terms) to appear in the seventh semester if they have failed more than 5 subjects in the last year of their studies. Division bench of Justice Vasant Naik and CV Bhadang justice denied to change the rules and rejected requests for regularization of the admission of students who had been admitted to the seventh semester unfairly.
Students in private schools in Mumbai engineers had petitioned the High Court to be denied admission baggage in the last year of his studies in 2014. The rules stated that if more than five failed subjects in its third year and we could clarify issues in their first or second year, could not be admitted to the fourth and final year of their courses. Petitioners claimed that there were about 5,000 students affected by these rules, while the University had sacrificed numbers about 1,000.
Defender Rui Rodrigues had submitted a circular University of Mumbai made a special case for the first and second year students who had not failed more than five subjects to sit for examinations of third and fourth year based on the old route 2007. From the next academic year degree students will be driven by the system based on the credit rating and review that could put these students at a disadvantage. Last year, the HC had allowed students to make their living and practical exams but later said that the results were not considered as they were admitted in violation of the rules.
