SC rejects PIL seeking CBSE exam fee waiver

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, November 17

The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to entertain a PIL seeking waiver of exam fees for Classes X and XII students in the current academic year due to financial problems being faced by many parents in view of Covid-19.

“How can the court direct the government to do this? You should give a representation to the government... Dismissed,” a Bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan said, dismissing NGO Social Jurist’s petition against the September 28 order of the Delhi High Court.

Refusing to issue directions to the Delhi Government and the CBSE, the High Court had asked the AAP government and the CBSE to treat the PIL as a representation and take a decision in three weeks “in accordance with law, rules, regulations and government policy applicable to the facts of the case”.
