A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Pratibha M Singh said, the CBSE’s decision which would come into effect from this year “would have a drastic effect on the Students”. It also asked, as the CBSE Class 12 Results 2017 are expected to be released in few days why the Central Board of Secondary Education can’t implement the change in policy from next year.
The Delhi High Court is hearing a petition by a Parent and advocate Ashish Verma. They said that the policy was changed after the exams for the year and hence would have a drastic impact on the students. They also said, the notification in not available on the CBSE’s website.
Due to the change in the policy, the class 12th students may not catch up with the cut-off of the Delhi University as there is a chance of decrease in marks by at least 15 percent, said Senior advocate Baldir Singh. The petitioner stated that the students of CBSE would also end up scoring less than State board students. The states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Chhattisgarh, have decided to implement the change in the policy from next year and hence the students belong to these state would fare better than those from Delhi and other states.
Additional Solicitor General, Sanjay Jain told the Delhi High Court that the board had written to the Delhi University regarding some relaxation to CBSE students, but the university has refused to do so.
