New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday sought the stand of the Centre and Delhi University (DU) on a plea challenging its new admission norms for undergraduate courses.

The court said amendment of the admission criteria just a day before opening registration was arbitrary.

The plea by a lawyer, Charanpal Singh Bagri, claimed that the varsity's decision to amend the criteria at the last moment was in violation of the principle of natural justice.

The petition has sought to quash the amended eligibility criteria, pleading that students be allowed to apply as per the earlier norms.

The DU commenced registration for admission on May 30. It will close on June 14.

The court has asked the Ministry of Human Resource Development, represented by advocate Brajesh Kumar, and the varsity to file their replies to the plea by June 14, the next date of hearing.

Students have been caught unaware as the eligibility criteria for some courses has been changed.
