1. The conclusion reached by the learned Single Judge is correct, but not
the route. Thus, a little clarification on the law is required and therefore we
are penning a short opinion.
2. Ordinance XXIII and Statute 12(1) framed by the University of Delhi
came up for interpretation before the learned Single Judge. The two read as

3. Staking claim under seniority, the appellant filed a writ petition
pleading that his seniority had been violated. The appellant claimed a right
to be appointed as the Head of the Department of Geology in the University
of Delhi.
4. The learned Single Judge has interpreted the Ordinance to be giving a
leeway to the Vice Chancellor by ignoring the principle of seniority.
