A single-judge bench consisting of Honorable Justice Kongara Vijaya Lakshmi dismissed the writ petition filed by the petitioner. The writ petition was filed to direct the respondents to provide her admission in any branches of polytechnic course either in the 4th respondent institution or in any other government women polytechnic college.
In this case, the petitioner completed 10th class in the current year 2020 and a certificate was also issued by the board of secondary education, Andhra Pradesh. The first respondent has conducted a polycet entrance examination in the month of October 2020 for admission into polytechnic courses. The seats were filled due to covid-19, so the government directed for spot admissions with the candidate who passed 10th class but not appeared for the polycet entrance examination.
A paper statement was issued regarding the admissions to be held on 10.12.2020. In spite of the same, the seats were not filled and there were vacancies in the fourth respondent college and government college. The petitioner’s mother is a maidservant, she did not have access to newspapers and missed the information regarding spot admissions.
As some more seats were left vacant, the petitioner seeks direction from respondents to admit her to any branch of polytechnic course either in the fourth respondent college or in any other government women polytechnic college. Therefore, the writ petition is filed by the petitioner.
The learned Government pleader appearing for the respondent contended before the court that spot admissions were conducted on 10.12.2020. and classes were also commenced from 14.12.2020 and as the cut-off date of admission is over the petitioner cannot be granted admission in any of the colleges.
The learned counsel for the respondent did not dispute the fact that the last date for admissions is already over.
The Court held that the cut-off dates are fixed into colleges and the said cut-off dates should be adhered to. If these dates are not followed the admissions will take place throughout the year. The court after seeing the facts and circumstances of the case can only sympathize with the case of the petitioner.
The direction sought by the petitioner cannot be issued, as the cut-off dates for admissions are already over and the classes are commenced. The writ petition filed by the petitioner is dismissed. There shall be no orders as to costs. Any application pending, in this case, shall stand closed.
