After a plea was made to the Supreme Court to nullify the rank list of the IIT Joint Entrance Examination 2017, the SC asked the Centre to respond to the request: the petitioner has asked to quash the awarding of additional marks to all the students who appeared in the exam.
A notice was issued to the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, who organized IIT-JEE this year, and the Ministry of Human Resources by the vacation bench of Justices S.K. Kaul and A.M. Sapre. The petitioner had requested to stay the counseling and on the merit list stating that it would be a prejudice to other students but the bench refused to stay the counseling.
The apex court has asked the institution and the government listed the petition filed by Aishwarya Agarwal, an IIT aspirant, and files their replies within a week for hearing on 7th July.
According to the petition,
The petition was filed after several objections were raised by the students on some questions being incorrect in both the papers, Main and Advanced.
Therefore IIT Madras decided to award 18 marks to all the students who gave the exam, whether they did or did not attempt the question. According to the petitioner, the act was a violation of the rights of the students who managed to solve the question.
