The Supreme Court on Monday ruled out any interference in Delhi University’s four-year undergraduate programme.
A vacation bench of Justice BS Chauhan and Justice Dipak Misra, however, said it would pass a direction to ensure all facilities are provided to visually challenged students.“These are policy matters and the court should not interfere in it,” the court said, asking the university to file an affidavit giving details of the facilities it intends to provide to blind students.
According to the petitioner, NGO Sambhavana, the university failed to take into account their concerns while devising the course. On this, the court told the university: “Look into the issues raised by them and file an affidavit on what facilities you are providing to them.” It fixed May 29 to hear the matter again.
The NGO claimed in its petition that a visually challenged student would not be able to meet the requirements of the foundation courses.
