New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear the petition of the Assam student on June 16.
Four affected students from Assam have approached the Supreme Court seeking directions to cancel the final examinations of Class X and XII. Four students Chajin Akhtar, Tabbasum Rahman, Jupitara Bardalai and Ipsita Gogoi had filed a petition in the Supreme Court through their lawyers. In its application, the state government has demanded cancellation of Class X and XII examinations in the current situation in Assam, alleging endangering the lives of students.
The June 16 hearing of advocate Mamata Sharma seeking cancellation of the exam across the country has been linked to the upcoming hearing in Assam.
In the application, four eligible students have demanded an alternative assessment similar to CBSE prescribed by the Government of Assam at the appropriate time. Also for those examinees who are not satisfied with such assessment, the applicant has supported the examination paper by deducting the status of Kovid.
In the hearing held on June 16, the Attorney General of the Central Government KK Benugopalak directed the Supreme Court to submit the details of the alternative assessment system after the CBSE canceled the examination. The CBSE had on June 4 constituted a 12-member committee to probe the matter. The committee has to submit its report within 10 days.
On the other hand, Assam Chief Minister Himant Biswa Sharma has already announced that if the transit rate in Assam is reduced to 2 per cent by July 1, two or three subjects will be examined between July 15 and 20. The Chief Minister also supported different examination papers for students and for students at different places.
