The National Institute of Design (NID) reached out to the division bench of the Gujarat High Court, opposing a single-judge bench’s order to the institute to allow admission to the applicant who capped its entrance exams for a master’s degree course.
NID filed a plea as the student filed a contempt of court petition after the institute denied the admission. Subsequently, the HC issued a notice to the institute. The bench headed by Chief Justice Aravind Kumar has agreed to hear NID’s plea on December 6.
The case involved a student named Ananya Joshi, who graduated from Design Village of Sri Venkateshwar University in Uttar Pradesh. She applied in the NID’s entrance exams for Master of Design (Ceramic and Glass Design Discipline) for the ongoing academic year and topped in the open category with 97.22 percentile. She was assigned a provisional seat. Due to her last semester exam being delayed and the result expected in the month of September, she was asked to put forward the bona fide certificate issued by the university. She submitted the bona fide certificate and previous mark sheets.
After scrutinizing the documents, the institute notified the student on July 21 that her application had been cancelled due to a lack of mandatory documents. NID told her that the college was not affiliated with the university. Therefore, she should submit the mark sheet with a seal and stamp of the university or a bona fide certificate from the university.
NID has defended its cancellation of an admission decision.
