High Court of Calcutta

Elora Bisoi v. The State of West Bengal and Ors.




College cannot claim non-eligibility for course if no mala fide in admission

A candidate once admitted to a college after full and true disclosure of her qualifications before the relevant authorities cannot be asked to vacate her seat at a later date.

In the instant case, the petitioner was adjudged ineligible for her course by college authorities after having spent a significant duration attending her studies and having appeared in several exams. At the time of admission, the Petitioner had made full disclosure and no mala fides had been levelled against her.

The court found in favour of the Petitioner. It found ‘strength’ in her admission, which had been approved by the relevant authorities on the basis of correct information tendered by the Petitioner.
