New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Thursday dismissed as "infructuous" a plea challenging JNU's admission policy based on a 2016 notification of the University Grants Commission which capped the number of students per professor for MPhil and PhD courses.

"Petition dismissed as infructuous," Justice V K Rao said.

The court said that the regulations made by UGC have to be followed by all varsities, including the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

In its 37-page judgement, the court said that if the students' plea is accepted, it would amount to "rewriting the law".

The students had challenged the admission policy on the ground that the May 5, 2016 UGC notification was implemented by JNU without following proper procedure.

JNU, represented by central government standing counsel Monika Arora, had contended that the procedure was a mere formality as the notification was binding on all varsities in the country.
