RAVI KANT Appellant
VERSUS
Vice-Chancellor,G.B.Pant University of Agriculture and Technology Respondents

JUDGEMENT

P.C.VERMA,J. - (1.)THE petitioner appeared in the test for admission in B.Sc., Agriculture in the Session 2000-2001. In fact the session commenced from January, 2001. The petitioner was asked to appear before the counselling committee and he after depositing the requisite fee, appeared before the counselling committee and was allotted rank 1529. The petitioner was offered admission but before depositing his fee for the admission, his admission was cancelled on the ground that the petitioner did not file certificate of O.B.C. category as required by sub-clause-6 of admit card. Sub-clause (6) of Clause-9 read as under: “Original Copy of Category/Weightage Certificate a copy of which you have submitted along with application. In case of O.B.C. category, the O.B.C. certificate issued after 31-3-2000 must be submitted original”.
(2.)ACCORDING to the learned Counsel for the University the petitioner ought to have submitted the caste certificate duly issued after 31-3-2000, which was not filed by him and the petitioner also did not apply for extension of time for the submission of the said certificate. Such Certificate as column No. 8 of checklist to be filled in by the candidate as contained in Annexure-3 was left blank, therefore, his admission was cancelled. Thus, it cannot be said that opportunity was not given to the petitioner for filing the said certificate.
The petitioner has filed the caste certificate on 22-1-2001 which is contained in Annexure-8 to the writ petition. The genuineness of the said certificate has also not been denied by the University.

(3.)FROM the perusal of condition contained in Annexure-4 i.e. admit card as well as Annexure-3 to be filed in by the candidate, it is evident that there is no provision providing for cancellation of admission in case of failure to file the OBC certificate by 31-3-2001 rather Clause-8 of check list enables the candidate to seek time for filing the document. Thus neither the admit card nor the check list filed by the candidate contained any mandatory provision providing for cancellation of admission in case of failure in filing the OBC certificate by 31-3-2000.
