JNU cannot cancel student’s candidature because there is no PhD supervisor: Delhi High Court

Justice C Hari Shankar said that JNU cannot ask a PhD candidate to find himself a supervisor either.

It is for JNU and JNU alone to assign a supervisor, the Court stressed.

“The JNU could not, therefore, have called upon the petitioner (a PhD candidate) to find a supervisor for himself. The task of finding a supervisor for a Ph.D. scholar is unequivocally cast, by the JNU’s own Ordinance 6.1, on the Committee for Advance Studies and Research (CASR), or the equivalent department in the JNU. The request, in the communication dated 18 May 2023, to the petitioner, to obtain a written consent from his prospective supervisor was, therefore, ex facie without jurisdiction or authority,” the Court said.
