MH CET Law 2016: Supreme Court issues notice to State, BCI

The Supreme Court has issued notices to the Maharashtra state government and Bar Council of India (BCI) on August 29, 2016 after taking cognizance of a Special Leave Petition filed against the Bombay High Court’s decision to dismiss a writ petition challenging MH CET Law 2016.

Sunil Warad, a law aspirant had earlier filed the petition with the Bombay High Court seeking to nullify the law entrance exam in July stating that poor performance by many students had led the cut-off marks to be as low as zero per cent.

While the High Court had dismissed the petition, it issued a statement expressing dissatisfaction over the manner in which the law examination was being conducted; pulling   up the Government for not notifying the students about the syllabus in advance and also not including the Bar Council of India in the consultation process. “The involvement of the BCI may have improved the standards. Those teaching the theory of law and those actually practicing it, if consulted, could have brought about a blend which the State ought to welcome. It is no use consulting some teachers and Principals and then finalizing the process, that too hurriedly,” the HC’s judgement read.

 

What makes matters worse for students is that although the exam was conducted in May and the results declared in July, MH CET Law 2016 counselling is that yet to be held. A reason behind this is that around 40 state law colleges have been derecognised by the BCI, which in result may withheld the entire admission process till October. The BCI has argued that the law colleges have been de-recognised as that they don’t have the required number of faculty.

 

What petitioners say?

Different media sources have quoted the petitioners saying that several of the test takers have hardly secured 35% of the total marks in MH CET Law 2016, which in turn has resulted in lowering the cut off marks to as low as zero (0) per cent so that the state law colleges’ seats could be filled. The students who had approached the apex court have also sought for stay of the Bombay HC order along with admissions made on the twelfth (12th) standard marks by individual colleges for the year 2016-17, as was conducted till last year.

 

What now?

The Supreme Court which has been adjourned for a week for next hearing will now be deciding fate of over 30,000 students who are seeking admission to undergraduate law courses in the state.
