HC green light for law entrance test
The Bombay high court on Thursday allowed holding of Maharashtra Law Common Entrance Test (CET) on June 18 (for the fiveyear programme) and 19 (for the three-year programme), subject to the outcome of a petition filed by an aspirant.
Astudent, Shalini Kotian, challenged the state’s decision to hold the CET without notifying the syllabus in advance. The student, in her petition, claimed the CET was being conducted by the state’s Cell, but not a single document or notification regarding the syllabus or paper pattern for law courses was available on its official website.She claimed that vague deta ils were put up on other sites.
Her petition stated that since the law CET was held conducted as per provisions of Maharashtra Unaided Private Professional Educational Institutions Act, 2015, it cannot apply to government or aided colleges like GLC.
She also said none of the reputed colleges were aware of the exact syllabus and pattern of paper. Kotian’s advocates S B Talekar and Vinod Sangvikar argued that it violates section 65 of Maharashtra Universities Act which requires declaration of changes in syllabus or exam pattern six months in advance.
The court passed a conditional order permitting the CET to be held. The petition will be heard next on June 27.
