    HC delivers hammering blow, shatters hopes of any relief to tainted 250 colleges, students

    At the same time, the Double Bench of Justice Bhushan Gavai and Justice Bora blasted the Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University for wasting time of the Court and playing with the future of students by its careless attitude.

    NU1113Nagpur News.

    Nagpur News: The Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court delivered a hammering blow and shattered the hopes of 250 colleges blacklisted for having no regular teachers and their students by refusing any relief after hearing over a petition filed by Sunil Mishra on the matter. At the same time, the Double Bench of Justice Bhushan Gavai and Justice Bora blasted the Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) for wasting time of the Court and playing with the future of students. The High Court ordered the petitioners to present their stand over the RTMNU’s affidavit filed on Tuesday (March 11) regarding the blacklisted 250 colleges and adjourned the hearing till March 26. The petitioners were represented by Sunil Mishra himself, Adv Bhanudas Kulkarni, Adv Anand Parchure while the RTMNU was represented by Adv Sudhir Puranik.

    THE RTMNU FIGURES QUESTIONED:

    Adv Puranik, representing the RTMNU informed the High Court during Tuesday’s hearing that 75 colleges out of 250 blacklisted colleges are closed down and 79 colleges out of remaining 175 colleges have appointed regular teachers. Subsequently, admissions for First Year in these 79 colleges could be allowed. The RTMNU’s Vidvat Parishad (Academic Council) has arrived at same decision. Even the remaining colleges have been given a timeframe for appointing regular teachers and the Vidvat Parishad has given its sanction for this decision. The High Court, after hearing the arguments of Adv Puranik, posed a pointed poser to him. From where the RTMNU gathered the figures so suddenly? Even when the Court is being informed that 75 colleges are non-functional.

    SHOULD THE VICE CHANCELLOR BE CALLED?

    The unsatisfied Justices Bhushan Gavai and Bora even said that if the attitude of RTMNU continues to be careless, the Vice Chancellor will have to be called for providing appropriate information to the Court. Although the High Court did not issue any written order in this regard but directed the RTMNU to submit original documents to the Court containing the information on figures. The University officials present in the Court immediately submitted 40-page documents. The High Court, upon submission of the 40-page documents, questioned: Are the documents a full report regarding the 250 colleges? When Adv Puranik gave an affirmative reply, the Court handed over the documents to the custody of High Court Registrar.

    ADMISSIONS AFTER SEPTEMBER 5 NOT POSSIBLE:

    During the hearing, the petitioner Sunil Mishra informed the High Court about previous orders over the same issues of RTMNU. The Court had ordered that admissions to students could not be given after September 5 because after admissions the clause of completion of 160 days is not achieved. Even the RTMNU Ordinance has formulated the same rule. Mishra further informed the court that when the issues are under consideration of the High Court, neither the RTMNU nor Vidvat Parishad can take any decision. In that case, the Vidvat Parishad decision on 250 colleges is not appropriate.

    After the hearing, the High Court observed that the RTMNU is not coming clean on the issues. The University is just wasting the time of Court even when the fate of students has been hanging in balance.
