Delhi HC guides JMI University to give law graduate his certificate
JMI University has to give degree and other documents to students within 3 days
New Delhi [India]: The Delhi High Court has directed the Jamia Millia Islamia University to give a law graduate his degree and other documents related to his education at the educational institution within a period of three days.
With these directions, a single-judge bench of Justice Jayant Nath had on Thursday disposed of the petition filed by Mohd Munis Siddique through advocates Harpreet Singh Hora and Himangi Kapoor with the grievance that the varsity has not given his mark sheet, degree, etc. “If any compliance is to be done by the petitioner the same shall be communicated by the respondent to the petitioner today itself. The respondent will ensure that necessary degree along with other documents to be given to the petitioner within three days thereafter,” the bench said.
Siddique had moved that court claiming that the varsity had not given his mark sheet, degree and other documents due to which he is losing opportunities for higher education and employment despite making efforts for the same since July 2020.
The plea said that the law graduate couldn’t get enrolled with the bar council due to acts of the university and the petitioner had to suffer loss because of the university’s fault.
On the final day of arguments, it was informed to the court that the university had only given mark sheet, which was no use to the petitioner.
