The Madras High Court has come with a disappointing verdict for the students. Tamil Nadu has a plan for just retotaling marks of Class X and XII students, and without a procurement for re-assessment of the whole stamp sheet, courts can't force powers to do re-assessment, Madras high court has ruled.
Taking note of that a request convincing powers to do revaluation would open a conduit of comparable requests from students, Justice S Vaidyanathan said: "without any plan or procurement for revaluation of the imprint sheet, this court can't constrain powers to act in a specific way as sought by the solicitor. On the off chance that this appeal is permitted, then there is each plausibility of different students thumping at the entryway of this court for the comparative alleviation and the reason for directing the board examination will be crushed."
The judge was passing requests on a writ appeal of P Muthualagan who looked for revaluation of her little girl M Kaavya's answer sheets of Tamil second paper in broad daylight examination for SSLC held a year ago. The young lady scored 87 imprints in Tamil second paper. Not fulfilled by the imprints, she looked for retotalling in May a year ago. As there no adjustment in the imprints, he got a duplicate of her answer sheet under the RTI Act, and discovered certain "inconsistencies" in grant of imprints in seven inquiries.
Due to decreased imprints for these answers, his little girl secured 488 imprints and couldn't profit herself of a school grant from the school, which reported free instruction to the individuals who secured 490 imprints in the Board examination. The administration advocate told the court that there was no lapse in re-totaling, and there was no plan to re-evaluate answer sheets.
In his request, Justice Vaidyanathan said all the inquiries had been legitimately adjusted and a few imprints recompensed to them. "Obviously, to a portion of the inquiries, lesser imprints were likewise designated, which does not imply that the daughter of the petitioner is qualified for get full check for all the inquiries," he said, including that the court couldn't arrange re-assessment where there is no procurement by any means.
