    Re: Answer script suit in high court


    Thank karira for the very valuable information.
    I has appeared for my TY B.Com exam from B'bay university in year 1996.
    I had failed in A/C III paper which is not of the easiest subject.
    I applied for revaluation but all in vain.
    Then I appeared for Second attempt in october with just a single revision and I got 80% marks.
    I am sure that I was passed at first attempt itself is there any way to get my evaluated answer sheet from b'bay university and do any of the member know the retention period of answer sheet as it is more than 10 years.

    Nile,

    That is why I say many times, that there should be total transparency in everything, so that there is no need for RTI.
    But that is still a far away dream !

    For the benefit of future students in Mumbai University, is it possible to use the circular of Pune University and try to force Mumbai University to do the same ?

    CU shows answers to pupil
    By LEGAL REPORTER in Telegraph Tuesday , May 6 , 2008
    Calcutta University has shown a marked answer script to a student for the first time in its 151-year history, forced to do so by the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

    Pritam Rooz, a B.Sc Part-II examinee from Presidency College, saw his mathematics Paper V (honours) answer script on May 2 after obtaining an order from Calcutta High Court.

    The court had observed that the RTI Act empowered a student to see his/her answer scripts after evaluation.

    “The court had ordered the university a month ago to show the script to Pritam. But the authorities obtained leave to move the Supreme Court against the verdict. Later, following discussions with legal experts, we decided to carry out the high court order,” said a senior university official.

    Pritam, however, alleged that he was not given a photocopy of the script as “ruled by the court”.

    “The university only allowed me to see the paper once,” he said.

    Sambuddha Chakrabarti, in-charge of the legal cell of the university, refused comment.

    Pritam had scored only 28 in mathematics Paper V. He had applied for a review, after which the marks were increased to 32. The student pleaded with the authorities to show him the paper, but the request was turned down. Pritam then moved the high court, arguing that the university had violated the RTI Act by refusing to show him the script.

    Citing the ruling, 52 candidates from various universities and boards have moved the court with similar pleas.

    In the case of examination answer scripts, if a student is claiming he should get more marks, and the department say it is not. In such case one thing could have been happened that some of his answer sheets are missed or some mischief might have been happened with his answer sheets.

    As I remember one Xth class examination result of my town in Andhra pradesh (around 14 years back), one girl failed in a subject, where as she was claiming that she answered all questions with correct answers.

    The parents of the girls took the issue very seriously and strongly fought with the Board, finally board took a decision to re-conduct that paper for single girl and then the girl stood with distinction.

    If such things happen, the students will be loosing their life. We should appreciate the students who are fighting for justice and asking for xerox certified copies to know whether all the answer scripts they wrote in exam are evaluated or not. It is a genuine demand from the student.

    When CIC gave a decision to disclouse the answer sheets of departmental examination, then why not the Board examination papers?

    Let us wait and hope the best.

    rakatkam.
    Will you please provide us the details of judgement like case number or where will the High court case be available?

    Pravin,

    Please visit The Judgment Information System
    Go to the Kolkata High Court site.
    Check for orders from Judge Sanjib Banerjee.
    Between 15/04/2008 and 29/04/2008.

    Unfortunately, as of today only those orders till 15 March 2008 have been uploaded.
