The Kerala High Court on Monday dismissed the petition filed by two students from private college challenging the prerogative of Admission Supervisory Committee and upheld the order of the committee.
The Admission Supervisory Committee has ordered that the Management Aptitude Test (MAT) conducted by All India Management Association will no longer be accepted in professional colleges for MBA admission after May 2016.
The division bench of the Kerala high court dismissed the petition and upheld that no admission conducted through entrance examination by the non-governmental agencies will be accepted for MBA courses except the KMAT.
KMAT, conducted by universities in Kerala is supervised by the ASC, CAT, and CMAT. CAT and CMAT are conducted by IIM and AICTE.
Petitioners challenge ASC order :
As per the ASC order, no students are eligible for MBA courses unless through the prescribed entrance examinations.
Petitioners pursuing MBA under NRI quota has challenged ASC order for preventing them of getting admission in MBA courses. The ASC observed that no admissions can be entertained through MAT.
The court dismissed their petition and upheld ASC orders.
The court further observed that no admission shall be entertained, disregarding NRI quota, by going against the scheme of professional education.
