BCI: No admissions in law courses beyond sanctioned seats | Varanasi News


Prayagraj: The Bar Council of India (BCI) has instructed all universities and colleges, including Allahabad University (AU), running law courses not to admit students under supernumerary quota over and above the total seats sanctioned by it.
The BCI has said that institutions should admit students to fill approved seats and clarified that additional seats cannot be created for quota in law courses.
The letter sent by Srimanto Sen, secretary of BCI, the apex decision making body approving various courses in law, says it does not approve supernumerary quota for law degree courses.
As a result, in the new academic session, admissions will be done only for sanctioned seats under the general rule.
Besides, the BCI has imposed a ban on allowing seats under any kind of supernumerary quota. But, in addition to AU, Allahabad Degree College (ADC) and Chaudhary Mahadev Prasad PG College (CMP) have increased 25% seats under the economically weaker section (EWS).
In the constituent colleges, admissions were done on 5% seats under supernumerary quota under the provision for wards of faculty members and employees. This quota was implemented only in the respective colleges and was not transferable. As a result the ward of an employee at CMP degree college can take admission only in that institution and not at AU or any other college.
“Last year too, we had done admissions according to sanctioned number of seats and supernumerary seats (5%) were also accommodated within it. When some objections were raised on the campus, we had sought a clarification from the BCI which has now endorsed our decision,” said AU registrar Prof NK Shukla.
ADC principal Atul Kumar Singh, however, said there are some fresh concerns and ambiguity after receiving the letter.
“We will write a letter to BCI asking for directions on how to complete the admission process,” he added.
