#SupremeCourt to hear a plea seeking extension of college admissions deadline due to delayed #compartmentexams and time to be taken for results
Petitioners aver that compartment exams by @cbseindia29 should have been cancelled like the CBSE main exams due to COVID19. But since exams are taking place, the admission deadline in colleges should be extended to give opportunity to compartment students to to apply too
Students are appearing for the first paper of #CompartmentExam2020 today.

Justice AM Khanwilkar led bench has assembled
Hearing will start shortly

Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha to appear for one of the petitioners (a minor student)


The lead petitioner has impleaded University Grants Commission in the case as the court had observed that UGC would be fit to decide how college admission deadlines can be extended, if at all.

Hearing begins.
ASG Rupinder Singh Suri appears for Union of India
@VTankha : Compartment exams from today till 29th. I was asked to serve a copy to Centre for a solution.

Senior Adv Tankha: If students dont get admissions then what is the use of exams

Justice Khanwilkar: exams are on, you have to appear

Tankha: UGC is before my lord. Once #CompartmentExam2020 are over, admissions should be quickly be declared so that admissions can take place
Tankha: UGC should accommodate the compartment students in the academic calendar.

Justice Khanna: you had said the admission process is over but that's not correct

Tankha: yes they have reopened. Since 2 lakhs students are appearing in compartment, they should be benefited
Justice Khanwilkar led bench has issues in hearing the counsels over #virtualhearing

Adv Apoorv Kurup for UGC: these are compartment students. admissions start and as seats are empty these students appear. UGC will declare results
Justice Khanwilkar: this is a peculiar situation and can you make some room for these students

Kurup: academic calendar is being finalised. If cbse declares results in batches the students will be accommodated if seats are vacant
Justice Khanwilkar to UGC: What is the cut off date for admissions?

Kurup: mostly end of Ocotber.

SC: then we can direct CBSE to declare results before that.
career of 2 lakh students is not a small number !
Adv Rupesh Kumar for CBSE: the papers will need to be corrected at 16 regional centres and we will need 3 to 4 weeks

SC: This is an exceptional year and you have to make some room. academic career of 2 lakh students cannot be hampered
Justice Khanwilkar: If CBSE declares results by end of October, then you can wrap up admissions by first week of November

Kurup: the academic calendar is finalised and we were to release it yesterday.
SC to UGC: Don't release the acadmeic calendar till Thursday. Let CBSE inform us and then you both coordinate. 2 lakhs students is not a small number and we have to work out a solution in this exceptional year. You need to work in tandem with CBSE.
Adv Avishkar Singhvi: we have given a list stating college admission deadlines to give you an idea

SC: We will not consider individual admission deadlines.

Case will again be taken up on September 24. CBSE and UGC to take a joint decision on declaration of results & admissions
CBSE Compartment Exams: "Academic career of 2 lakh students cannot be hampered", Supreme Court directs UGC to not release the academic calendar till Sep 24

#SupremeCourt hears plea by BRS President and former Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao challenging the Telangana High Court's decision to dismiss his petition against a commission formed by the state government Image
Sr Adv Mukul Rohatgi: Plain case of political vendetta. Every time the government changes there is a case against the former chief minister

CJI DY Chandrachud: we will clarify that by calling it judicial enquiry they cannot take it outside the scope of the commission @TSwithKCR
Rohatgi: you cannot fix responsibility in a fact finding commission. This was for approval of tariff ..there was a power crisis and thus state bought power from state of chhatisgarh and thus the PPA needed approval from Chhattisgarh state commission and Telangana state commission.

Supreme Court DISMISSES plea by Deputy CM of Karantaka DK Shivakumar to quash CBI's disproportionate assets case against him under provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.

A bench of Justices Bela Trivedi and Satish Chandra Sharma heard the matter. Image
Trivedi J: How High Can stay the sanction order granted by government? This is unheard of.

Senior Adv Rohatagi (for Shivakumar): That is withdrawn already.

Trivedi J to State: That is different thing but how High Court can grant such order?
Senior Adv Rohatagi (for Shivakumar): We are on a new question, the ground is this court has held that if the predicate offence is only conspiracy, it cannot be a stand alone offence and it has to be added by some other offence as well. I am questioning the FIR lodged by CBI which is completely illegal. I am not on any part by ED. I am on the FIR dated 3.10.20 under PC Act by CBI. Section 17A which has come in 2018 requirement has not been fulfilled (referring to split verdict of Justice Trivedi and Justice Bopanna)

Trivedi J: We cannot quash the case on the basis of split verdict by this court.

Senior Adv Rohatagi: But one judge has ruled in our favor.

Trivedi J: So what, that cannot be the basis of quashing. No quashing at all.

Delhi High Court orders removal of tweets by Congress leaders Ragini Nayak, Jairam Ramesh, and Pawan Khera alleging that journalist Rajat Sharma abused Nayak on live-television.

@RajatSharmaLive @NayakRagini @Jairam_Ramesh @Pawankhera Image
High Court holds that Congress leaders over-sensationalised the incident and did not remain truthful.
"It cannot be denied that the citizens have a right to freedom of Speech and expression but there was also a corresponding duty to remain truthful to the incident. The X posts berating the plaintiff are nothing but an oversensationalization and depiction of facts which are patently false," the court said.
