The Delhi High Court has directed the Jamia Millia Islamia to give degree and other documents to a law graduate within three days of the graduate making the online application.
A bench of Justice Jayant Nath passed the order in a writ petition filed by law gradaute Mohd. Munis Siddique through Advocate Harpreet Singh Hora and Himangi Kapoor.
The petitioner had the grievance that the University has not given his marksheet, degree and other documents due to which he was losing his opportunities for higher education and employment.
The plea stated that the law graduate couldn't get enrolled with the bar council due to acts of the university and the Petitioner had to suffer loss because of the university's fault.
On the final day of arguments, it was informed to the court that the University had only given marksheet.
The University's counsel told the court that the petitioner has to make an online application and the degree will be made available to him after that.
The bench disposed of the writ petition observing :
"If any compliance is to be done by the petitioner, the same shall be communicated by the respondent to the petitioner today itself. The respondent will ensure that necessary degree alongwith other documents be given to the petitioner within three days thereafter"
