The facts of the case are that a writ petition is filed seeking to: Issue a writ of certiorari quashing the respondent No.2 issued regulations governing the Five year B.A. LLB, under clause 15(b), “the students are required to successfully complete the entire course within ten years from the admission to the course” with respect to annexure-D issued by the second respondent; Issue a writ of mandamus directing the respondents Starting on April 26, 2022.

In the petitioner’s case, he was admitted to the respondent-college in 2009 for a five-year B.A., LLB course. He claims that for a variety of reasons, he was unable to complete the LLB Course within the allotted ten years. Following that, respondent-University refused to allow the petitioner to take up the examination of the balance papers, which the petitioner was unable to pass.

The petitioner sought the revocation of the regulations governing the five-year B.A. LLB course, clause 15(b) of which states that “students are required to successfully complete the entire course within ten years of admission to the course.” He had also requested that the respondents grant him permission to remit the examination fee and sit for the B.A. LLB final year examination. Starting on April 26, 2022.

The petitioner stated that he was admitted to the respondent-college in 2009 for the 5-year B.A., LLB course. He claims that for a variety of reasons, he was unable to complete the LLB Course within the allotted ten years. Following that, respondent-University refused to allow the petitioner to take up the examination of the balance papers, which the petitioner was unable to pass.

It was pleaded that the petitioner be allowed to submit a representation to the respondent-University in order for the existing conditions to be relaxed and the examination of the balance papers to begin.

Advocate Ganapathy Bhat, appearing for the University, stated that there is currently no provision for students to take the examination beyond the time limit. If a representation is made, the University will take it into account by bringing it before the Syndicate and Academic Council. The court then issued the directive to the University.
