BCI allows DU to admit students to all seats

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has allowed Delhi University to admit students to all seats this year and run evening classes.

Giving a one-time relaxation, the council on Sunday, however, made it clear that it will not allow the university to admit more than 1,400 students to the law programmes offered by it.

The BCI also slapped a fine of Rs 3 lakh on the university for offering 2,301 seats for admissions to law degree programmes this year without any prior approval of the council.

“In the interest of the students, the standing committee has decided that we will give DU a one-time relaxation for the academic year 2016-2017,” BCI chairman Manan Kumar Mishra told reporters here.

With the BCI’s decision, the ongoing row over closure of the evening law classes at the Delhi University seems to have come to an end as the dean of Law Faculty at the university SC Raina gave an undertaking that the conditions imposed by the BCI would be complied with from the next academic year.
