The Madhya Pradesh High Court has held “no college has any statutory, fundamental or any vested right to claim that it should be made an examination centre”.
The court’s observation came on a petition filed by a private college challenging the university notification of 10.4.2017 wherein the college was not made the examination center and its students were given examination centre in other college.
In past the petitioner college had been notified by the university as the examination centre for the students studying in it, however, the varsity changed the examination centre of the students studying in the petitioner college as well as other private colleges though there was no complaint against the petitioner college.
A division bench comprising Justice Ravi Shankar Jha and Justice Ashok Kumar Joshi upheld the notification issued by the varsity.
The examination centres are created in such places "where it is possible for the University to properly manage and supervise the examination provide facilities to the concerned students”.
Therefore, “we are of the considered opinion that the impugned notification or the decision of the State Government does not, in any manner, effect or violate any statutory or fundamental right of the petitioner warranting interference by this Court”.
