Delhi HC junks plea seeking to conduct DU LLB exam in Hindi

A plea seeking direction to Delhi University to hold the entrance examination for the LLB course in Hindi language has been dismissed by the Delhi High Court.

The HC decision came after hearing a petition filed by Ayush Tiwari, a 20-year old BA student from Allahabad, who moved the court seeking directions to the University of Delhi that he should be allowed to take an LLB entrance exam in Hindi.

The petitioner told the court that he is “desirous of studying law, however, since he has got all his education in Hindi medium, it would be unfair for him to take the entrance exam in English when on the contrary DU Law Faculty allows term examination of LLB to be taken in Hindi”.

While hearing the petition, the HC bench comprising of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar noted that a similar plea has already been dismissed by a single judge and division bench of the High Court.

The single judge bench of HC in 2014 had junked a similar case, filed by Shailendra Mani Tripathi. While dismissing the plea, the HC’s division bench had observed, “We cannot shut our eyes also to the fact that the language of the courts, particularly in Delhi, primarily remains English and the judgments of the courts are pronounced and reported in the English language.”

The HC bench also opined that if the relief as prayed was granted, it would be equivalent to ‘interfering with the autonomy’ of the Delhi University.
