High Court opined that “BCI should constitute special expert teams to conduct surprise visits of the colleges that lack minimum infrastructure and adequate facilities. The inspection reports of the colleges teaching law on its website shall be uploaded within one month of such inspection. If any colleges upon such inspection are found to be lacking minimum infrastructural facilities, then the BCI must take immediate steps to close such colleges. This is a much-needed therapy that ought to be introduced to cure the maladies that legal education is suffering from.”
The bench stated that the Commercialization of Education is another bane that the sector in India is suffering from. One such manifestation of profiteering in this noble profession is in the form of enrolling additional students in each coming batch without upgrading the existing infrastructure.
High Court observed that the classes or any educational activity cannot be allowed to function in the basement. It can only be used for parking purposes. DHE has rightly granted the NOC for admission of 85 students in the course of BA LLB to the petitioner institute based on the recommendation of the JAC reports.
In view of the above, the bench rejected the petition.
