No provisional admission in GTB tech institute : HC

Published on : 03-Aug-2016 Powered by

The pleas of Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology and Polytechnic Institute to let them admit students provisionally in 2016-17 while challenging AICTE stand of putting them under “NO ADMISSION” category has been rejected by the Delhi High Court. The institutes were put in no admission category since Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), the body running the institutes, did not honour its commitment of shifting the polytechnic institute to Rajouri Garden before October 2015. Both the institutes are currently operating from the premises of Guru Harkrishan Public School at Vasant Vihar.


GTB Institute of Technology conducts undergraduate engineering courses and is affiliated to the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University. GTB Polytechnic is affiliated to the Board of Technical Education, Delhi, and conducts diploma courses. The institutes have sanctioned intake of 600 and 400 respectively.


Dismissing their plea, HC explained “It puts the career of students, who take provisional admission, at risk. The mere fact that students are willing to take such a risk, does not justify putting them at such a crossroad unless the peculiar facts of the case warrant such an interim order.”


The HC also said “It would have a cascading effect of unsettling the entire allocation of seats and would disrupt the academic schedule. Further, in case the petitioner does not succeed in the writ petition, the students admitted by interim orders, would have to be adjusted in different institutes in and around Delhi which may not be possible on account of unavailability of seats at that point of time and may also lead to litigation and harassment to students.”
