MUMBAI: Each year, the joint entrance exam result buries the Indian Institutes of Technology under the Right To Information applications and legal cases. Lakhs of those who don't make it to the IITs demand copies of their answer scripts, forcing the engineering colleges to usher in transparency.
For years, every RTI application was rejected, every court case favoured the IITs. For the first time now, the 2011 edition of the JEE will put out scanned copies of every student's answer sheet. The exam will be held on Sunday and it will be taken by 4.85 lakh candidates , up from last year's 4.72 lakh.
