Delhi HC dismisses plea to hold DU LLB exam in Hindi
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has junked a plea seeking a direction to the Delhi University to conduct the entrance examination for the LLB course in Hindi language.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar noted that a single judge and division bench have already dismissed a similar plea in 2014.
The Delhi High Court, in 2014, had dismissed a similar case filed by Shailendra Mani Tripathi saying that judgements are pronounced and reported primarily in English language.
"The single judge had noted Article 348 of the Constitution of India, which states that the language to be used in the Supreme Court and high courts as well as the acts and bills shall be in English. It was also opined by the single judge that if the relief as prayed was granted, it would tantamount to interfering with the autonomy of the University of Delhi," it had observed.
