The state government has given approval to almost 90 per cent of the law colleges in the state, including blacklisted colleges, ahead of the admissions based on Law CET scores. The option filling process had flagged the colleges as red, green, white and yellow based on various stages of approvals, as a result of which students were not opting for red-flagged colleges. Now with almost all colleges being classified under white flags (all clear) students have been asked to refill the option form.
The blacklisted colleges have been given a year’s time on the condition that they comply with the norms.
The Bar Council of India (BCI) and State Bar Council had deterred 64 law colleges in the state from conducting admissions for the academic year 2016-17 as they had failed to comply with norms. Compliant to the BCI order, the state CET cell had marked colleges under four colours with white for colleges that have received affiliation from the university and BCI, yellow for approved colleges subject to approval of BCI, green for colleges that have sent compliance report to the BCI and red for colleges awaiting government sanction or approval letter. K C Law College, Advani Law College, Jitendra Chauhan Law College and Government Law College were four colleges that had red flags next to them.
However, in a meeting held by the Bar Council last week it decided to give one approval and one year’s time to almost all colleges that included the government-run and aided colleges to comply with the norms. According to BCI vice-chairman Satish Deshmukh, “BCI decided to grant a year’s time to the blacklisted colleges on the condition that they recruit teachers on the 40:1 ratio.”
