The GGIPU was represented by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta along with Advocate Ekta Sikri, while the respondent was represented by Senior Advocate PS Patwalia.
The counsel appearing for self financing educational institutions association said students will have to suffer if admissions to law courses were made only through CLAT as the last date for applying for CLAT was already over.

“Nobody will suffer. CLAT means CLAT,” the bench observed.
“Ask you junior to behave properly in the court,” the bench said, adding, “What is this happening? We will initiate contempt… Is this a ‘Sabzi Mandi’ (vegetable market)? A senior counsel is arguing and he (junior lawyer) is shouting from behind”.

The Directorate of Higher Education of Delhi government had issued an order on February 11 permitting the GGSIPU to adopt National Level Tests for admission to several courses, including LLB and LLM, for 2019-20.
