Noting that courts have no power to interfere with the decisions taken by expert bodies, the Madras high court has refused to interfere with an order of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) refusing to grant approval for an engineering college. Justice K.Chandru passed an order to this effect, after dismissing a write petition filed by the by Amudhasurabi Educational and Charitable Trust seeking a direction to the AICTE to grant approval to establish Amudasurabi College of Engineering and Technology near Mettur in Salem district. When the trust applied for approval, an expert committee inspected the institution and noticed deficiencies.
On appeal, a second committee was constituted and it too found deficiencies. Claiming that the inquiry panel’s findings were erroneous and that they had not taken proper note of the facilities available on the premises, the trust filed the present petition. In its counter-affidavit, the AICTE said that the expert committee personally visited the institution and submitted the report and hence it could not be substituted and rectified by a mere representation of the petitioner. Reiterating the finding that the deficiencies still existed in the college and that the infrastructure was not in accordance with AICTE norms and regulations, it said the approval was justly denied. Agreeing with the submissions, Justice Chandru said that the Surpeme Court had held that courts had no power to interfere with the decisions taken by the expert bodies. In the light of this, the petition was dismissed.
