Admissions to engineering colleges through IIT-JEE, including NITs, halted by SC over bonus marks scheme

Bonus Marks – Bone of Contention

The order came on a petition filed by two students who sought the court’s direction to IIT-Madras to revise the list of successful students without giving them bonus marks. The petitioners who cleared the exam claimed their ranking in merit list was hit by bonus marks to all.  Petitioner also argued that bonus marks should have been given selectively.
The Supreme Court listed the matter for further hearing on July 10. The bench also restrained the high courts from entertaining any writ petition relating to counselling and admissions to the IITs from Friday onwards.
Freezing the admission and the counselling process that is underway, the court observed that granting bonus marks is a problem; it has to be solved by us at the earliest.
