A bench of justices AM Khanwilkar and Sanjeev Khanna had said that it is not a small thing to affect the careers of 2 lakh students. Their career will be affected for a full year.
Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ also urged the CBSE and UGC presidents to coordinate the dates of release of CBSE compartment exam results. At the same time, students taking compartment examination had requested the court to ensure that the results are declared early so that they are not denied admission in colleges this year.
