JEE Main 2013: AP High Court issues notice on NIT/CFTI Admissions
The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday June 27, 2013, has issued a notice to the Ministry of Human Resource Development, New Delhi, JEE Apex Board (JAB) Central Board of Secondary Education, Delhi and the Executive Director,JEE (Main) New Delhi with regard to the normalization procedure followed for admissions to the National Institute of Technology (NITs) and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs)
Admitting a petition by Ch. Rahul Anand and Yash Mehrotra from Hyderabad, the Hon’ble Court presided by Justice Ramesh Ranganathan directed that all admissions to these institutes will be subject to the further orders and the final outcome of the writ petition pending before the court. Justice Ramesh Ranganathan further directed the respondents to ensure that all the students being admitted be intimated about this new development.
Sri Ponnam Ashok Goud, Asst Solicitor General, Hyderabad present in the court has taken the notices on behalf of the respondents.
The counsel for the petitioners, Gandra Mohan Rao told the court that JEE is the main gateway for admissions to the NITs and CFTIs. The new system introduced in the current year uses a normalisation process to arrive at a common assessment level after comparison of the the intermediate marks awarded by as many 42 intermediate boards all over the country from various states.
The counsel put forth the argument that the new procedure is detrimental to students from the state boards and beneficial to the CBSE ones. The Hon’ble Court has asked the respondents to file their counter affidavits within two weeks.
