The Delhi High Court has asked the Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE, to re-evaluate the answer sheets of all the subjects of all students who wrote the class XII examination this year and seek re-evaluation.
The CBSE has been directed to give benefit of the scheme of scrutiny to students who have a grievance that their answer books have not been checked as per the marking scheme.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said the relief will not be confined only to the petitioners before it and shall be admissible to all the similarly situated students who seek re-evaluation of their answer sheets.
The court’s direction came on a plea filed by four students against the CBSE’s 28 June notice imposing conditions that the right of applying for scrutiny was limited to 12 subjects only and up to 10 questions per subject.
The court also issued notices to the Centre and CBSE on the plea and sought their replies within ten days.
The matter has now been fixed for further hearing on 26th July.
