Delhi HC instructs St. Stephens to abide by DUs rules, Only CUET, no interviews

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court ordered St. Stephen's College to release a new prospectus on Monday, stating that there will be no interviews for admissions and granting the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) 2022 score 100% weightage for non-minority applicants applying for undergraduate programmes.

The Delhi University (DU) order to withdraw its admission prospectus and permit admissions through CUET was being challenged by St. Stephen's College in a case before a bench that included Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad.

In the order, the court directed the college to withdraw its admission prospectus and issue a public notice declaring the amended admission procedure, saying the aided minority educational institutions that are affiliated with the university must follow its norms and procedures.

It was also said, in the ruling, that the DU cannot insist upon a single merit list for admission of candidates belonging to the Christian community regardless of any denomination, sub-sex, or sub-activities within the community.

The prospectus issued by St Stephen's for admissions 2022-23 states that students from all categories, including general/unreserved seats, will be admitted on the basis of an 85:15 ratio. While 85 per cent of weightage would be given to the CUET, 15 per cent weightage would be given to interviews.

However, the decision goes against the Delhi University guidelines issued for admissions to the new academic session which led to a row between Delhi University and St Stephen's College.
