IIT JEE errors issue will reach to Supreme Court of India

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today dismissed public interest litigation of a non-governmental organization (NGO) that has sought stay on the declaration of result of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) entrance exam held on April 11.

Today on 19 May 2010 Delhi High court dismissed the writ petition demanding an interim stay on IIT JEE result; however the next hearing on the PIL will be held on 02 June 2010.
Chetan Upadhyaya, secretary and counsel of Satya Foundation dissatisfied with the court decision decided to move to supreme court to challenge the decision taken by the Delhi high Court

Raising the issue of errors in the instructions for examinees who took the IIT joint entrance examination (IIT-JEE) in Hindi, the NGO, Satya Foundation, filed the public interest litigation (PIL) on April 23, which was heard on 04 May 10

Earlier Chetan Upadhyaya,  submitted before the court a list of serious blunders in the IIT JEE-2010 and said that instead of accepting the faults and re-conducting the examination, the Joint Admission Board was trying to cover up the issue with "corrective measures" which are "totally illogical and can't be digested by anybody".

The IIT-JEE board evolved corrective measures on May 2 to ensure that genuine candidates were not affected by the examination errors. It formulated a point-by-point remedial action and posted the same on the IIT-JEE website on May 2, it said.

But the petitioner demanded an interim stay on the publication of results till the pendency of the petition and also that the examination be re conducted.

Earlier The two-judge bench of Acting Chief Justice Madan B. Lokur and Ms. Justice Mukta Gupta, admitting the petition clubbed it along with the earlier petition filed by Rajeev Kumar, a professor at IIT Kharagpur through his legal counsel Prashant Bhushan on April 7 for overall transparency in the IIT-JEE system ordered that both the PIL will be heard on 19 May 10
