The Delhi High Court has today directed the Jawaharlal Nehru University to allow their professor to pursue a 9 months fellowship at a Research Institute in France and grant him extraordinary leave for the same.

A single-judge bench of Justice Jyoti Singh while hearing the matter through video conferencing noted that the order rejecting the EOL was fully arbitrary and the same is against the ordinance of the university.

The petition has been filed by JNU Professor Udaya Kumar through his Advocate Mr. Abhik Chimni seeking direction for the University to reconsider his application for EOL and grant him the same. Udaya is a Professor in the Department of English Studies, has been offered a Fellowship at the Nantes Institute of Advanced Study, France for a period of nine months from October 2020, which is a Research Institute of Global eminence.
