TET 2021 Candidates To Get Grace Marks For Two Questions And 2019 Candidates One Mark Each: Allahabad High Court
Prayagraj, February 6 (TNA) In a big and far-reaching decision, the Allahabad High Court (HC) has ruled that TET 2021 candidates will get grace marks for two questions, and 2019 candidates will get one mark each. The court has said that discrimination cannot be done based on whether the petitioners have objected to the answer key or not. All petitioners have the right to relief, it further said.
Allahabad High Court has directed to declare the result afresh by giving grace marks to all 230 candidates instead of two wrong questions of UPTET Exam 2021 and by giving one mark to 727 candidates instead of two questions of UPTET 2019.
The court has refused to intervene on other questions. The court has said that discrimination cannot be done based on whether the petitioners have objected to the answer key or not. All petitioners have the right to get relief. Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamsheri has given this order while partially approving the petitions of 230 candidates of TET 2021, Pragati Agarwal and 15 others, and 727 petitions of candidate Akhilesh and 14 others of TET 2019.
The petitioners said that in the Mohammad Rizwan case, the same questions on which the court found fault and ordered to give grace marks, have been included in the 2021 examination. Therefore they also have the right to get the same relief
The government said that the questions are decided by experts and the court cannot be an expert. Secondly, the petitioners who have not objected to the answer key are not entitled to any relief. Wrong questions from the previous examination have been taken again in this examination, this mistake has been accepted by the government. The questions which were at number 16 and 131 in the previous exam are at number 8 and 141 in this 2021 exam. The court has directed us to give grace marks to both questions.
Questions 83 and 144 were found not correct in the 2019 exam. The court has directed to give one mark on the basis of the Ranvijay Singh case of the Supreme Court. Refused to intervene on other questions due to lack of sufficient suspicion.
