SC asks centre for response on the plea to cancel the IIT JEE 2017 rank list



IIT JEE 2017: Plea to cancel rank list, SC awaits Centre’s reply

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 action of giving bonus marks to students who gave the IIT-JEE Advanced Examination this year was wrong.

  • The petition requests the court to declare that the awarding of bonus marks was a violation of the rights of the students.

  • It also requests bonus marks for the incorrect questions to the students who attempted the correct answer and an all new All-India rank list after the rectified scores of JEE Advanced.

  • The petitioner has suggested an alternative of conducting a fresh examination or granting all students an opportunity to appear again in the examination next year.

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.
