The Consortium of National Law Universities has agreed before the High Court of Kerala to look upon the grievance regarding its demand for a Rs. 50,000 deposit for participation in the allotment process.

The single bench of Justice Anu Sivaraman has ordered to submit the grievances by 3:00 today.

Today till noon was set as the last date for registering along with paying the aforesaid amount for the counselling process, though following the order the deadline was made extended till 3:00 pm today.

The Court was hearing a petition which was challenging the condition to pay Rs 50,000/- for allotment of seats, this payment was taken even before the admission procedure including the counselling round.

The petitioners were represented by Advocate Thareeq Anver K.

The petitioners contended that the candidates with the poor economic background will get an unwarranted disadvantage as even after scoring good enough, they won’t be considered for admission procedures including counselling rounds unless they don’t pay the aforementioned amount.

The Consortium of NLUs has agreed to take up the grievance before its Grievance Redressal Committee and consider all such applications today itself.

The matter would be further heard next week.
