New Delhi, June 30, 2021: The Delhi High Court today declined to entertain an application praying that all CBSE-affiliated schools be directed to publish “the rationale document” — containing the criteria devised for assessment of Class X students — before the results are declared.
The High Court also pulled up the petitioner for approaching the court at the eleventh hour, saying the results cannot be stayed at this stage.
“If there is some decision which is taken and has a bad result, you come with particular examples. This is all based on the anticipation that someone will be vindictive, that CBSE would be vindictive because we are parents espousing some cause…Where are you getting all this from? Where are you seeing all these ghosts,” observed the vacation bench of Justices Manmohan and Navin Chawla, reported The Indian Express.
The court was hearing the application moved by NGO ‘Justice for All’ in a pending PIL seeking modification of the policy for tabulation of Class X results based on internal assessment by the schools.
Following the hearing, Justice for All withdrew the application. The court gave the NGO the liberty to file an application for early hearing of the PIL seeking modification of the policy before the roster bench, The Indian Express said.
