Last Year’s Policy Can Be Adopted This Year Too, SC On 12th Board Exam

Jamshedpur 1st June 2021: The Supreme Court on Monday told the Centre to give reasons if the government is departing from the decision taken last year, amid the Covid pandemic, in connection with the class XII board exams.
The bench emphasized that the policy which was adopted last year can be adopted this year too and reiterated that if the Centre is departing from the notification issued earlier, then it should have a good tangible reason.
On the other hand, the petition filed by advocate Mamta Sharma urged the top court to issue directions to the boards to cancel the Class XII examinations, instead devise an objective methodology to declare the result within a specific time frame.
The plea contended that it is a fit case wherein the top court may exercise its power under Article 142 of the Constitution to direct the respondents to implement the same methodology, which is being adopted for Class X to declare the result and cancel the examination for Class XII.
