CBSE restrictions on revaluation scrapped
New Delhi, July 7: The Delhi High Court on Thursday scrapped the restrictions imposed by the CBSE on revaluation of answer sheets of Class XII students, and directed the board to re-evaluate the answer sheets of all students who have applied for a fresh scrutiny of their papers.
The court issued the directions on a plea filed by four students against CBSE’s June 28 notification that had allowed the re-evaluation only for 12 selected subjects and up to only 10 questions per subject.
The petitioners were seeking re-evaluation in subjects not mentioned in the June 28 notification.
“The relief is not confined to the petitioners and shall apply to all similarly situated students who seek re-evaluation of their answer sheets,” the court said.
The CBSE had framed the contentious rules for revaluation after the court intervened in the matter when some students filed a petition seeking that the CBSE allow revaluation.
The court also issued notices to the Centre, CBSE and the Delhi University on the plea and sought their replies within 10 days. The matter has now been fixed for further hearing on July 26.
