The girl, who wanted to study law, could not study at the National Law University and managed to gain admission in a private university.
Counsel for the petitioner organisation said the college at the private university does not have facilities for disabled students despite a law which mandates provision of facilities to such students.
"She was made to stay in a hostel in a shared room with two other normal students, the bathroom did not have a ramp and there was no escort facility in the hostel for such students," he said.
He said Persons for Disabilities(Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995, provided certain guidelines to be followed, which were not adhered to by higher education institutes.
The bench said three per cent reservation provided under the law is now being followed by the educational institutions. "There is no tracking or monitoring whether these institutes are providing reservation or not to the disabled students. There is no reporting mechanism for the institutes," the counsel said.
"We will pass order with regard to these issues," the bench said.
