Can't quit IIT in midway, orders Delhi HC

New Delhi, Thu, 05 Apr 2012 NI Wire

In a major breakthrough decision, the Delhi High Court on Thursday has stated that the candidate who has secured his/her seat in India's premium engineering Institute 'Indian Institute of Technology' (IIT) can't leave it in the midway otherwise, he/she would be barred from reappearing in the joint entrance examination (JEE), held every year for being eligible to get admission.

Upholding the decision of IIT authorities, Justice Hima Kohli today said that students who leave a course after confirming their admission or leave the institute after one, two or any of the year would not be allowed to appear in the next joint entrance examination (JEE).

Sentencing the decision in the favour of institute, which claims institute spends hefty money over a student, Delhi Court said, such attempts by candidates, who once qualified in IIT-JEE and later sought to withdraw from the seat allocated to them, resulted in immense financial strain on the institute.

"In this attempt, the institute would have to keep a seat vacant not just in the first year but right through the course that may extend up to five years as in the present case."

"Apart from this, the course is extremely prestigious and every seat is precious and cannot be permitted to be wasted in such a manner," sentenced Delhi HC.

The court's decision came while hearing a plea filled by Prateek Rohilla, who withdrew his admission to IIT-Madras after paying the registration fee last year. Rohilla wanted to appear in the IIT-JEE-2012 scheduled for April 8.

The Institute canclled the application form of Prateek quoiting the condition of admission. Thus, Prateek moved to the court.
