Shimla College of Education v. State of Himachal Pradesh

Education – Common Entrance Test – Merely because certain seats have remained vacant with the Institutes does not justify allowing them to admit students by adhering to only minimum eligibility criteria. Introduction of the common entrance test is certainly intended to introduce additional, further and higher standards of education. Primary reason of the seats remaining vacant in the Institutes is mushrooming growth of private institutions and because degrees or diplomas they award are going out of favour with the students as they are no longer considered promising or attractive for future career prospects and also because of the fact that some of these institutions enjoy bad reputation due to lack of infrastructure, bad faculty and indifferent teachings.
