The Delhi high court has refused to entertain an appeal against its single judge decision allowing Delhi University’s Khalsa College to commence its admission process for this academic year under the minority status.

A vacation bench of justice V Kameswar Rao and justice IS Mehta said the appeal by a teacher who claims that if the admissions under the minority status are allowed, her service conditions would be affected, has “no locus”.

“You show us that because of minority status, your service conditions are affected,” the court said.

“In any case you will have no problem. Let the person (students/teachers) aggrieved come before us. As of today you do not have locus to file this appeal,” the bench said.

It further said that the appeal by the teacher be withdrawn or else it will be dismissed, after which the petitioner, a teacher of Khalsa College, withdrew her plea.

The court was hearing an appeal against its single judge’s interim order passed on June 20 on some teachers’ plea seeking stay on National Commission for Minority Educational Institution (NCMEI) order granting minority status to Sri Guru Teg Bahadur (SGTB) Khalsa College.

The single judge had also asked the teachers how they were affected if students were given admission under the minority status.
