A Karnataka High Court bench comprising Justice Krishna Dixit has dismissed a plea filed by National Law School of India University student, Madhav Miturka,
seeking evaluation of his project work and promotion to third year of the B.A. LLB (Hons) Course, despite low attendance.
The petitioner had sought condonation of short attendance under Regulation 6 of B.A. LL.B (HONS.) Academic and Examinations Regulations. The court, however, dismissed the plea observing that the University had informed the Petitioner about shortage of his attendance in September, 2019.
The Court remarked that “the attendance of the petitioner in this ‘Premier Law School’ is too short to be little”. It has ordered the University to reimburse the fee it has accepted from the petitioner on the assumed promotion to the next level of the Course, within two weeks.
