The court said the right of an institute to grant or deny admission and the right to admission of a student are beyond dispute, but they have certain limitations.
"We are not oblivious of the importance of discipline among students. Universities today have striven to ensure principled conduct for admission of students and transition to higher education. The code of conduct is amongst the necessary elements, which are needed for admission of any student in schools or universities," the court said.
"Discipline in schools and universities must be recognised as prioritised criteria for admission of a student in a particular course," it said.
