CBSE 12th Result 2017: Uncertainty continues to prevail over the declaration of Central Board of Secondary Education’s class 12th result as there is no confirmation on the date when the results will be declared. Human Resource and Development Minister Prakash Javadekar on Wednesday asked students not to worry and said, “CBSE will declare the result dates, there is nothing to worry about, no injustice will be meted out to anyone.” Earlier in the week, the Delhi HC slammed CBSE for scraping the moderation policy. It called CBSE’s decision “unfair and irresponsible” and further added that it “would have a drastic effect on the students.” The law making body also said that the Central Board of Secondary Education cannot make any new reforms in the policy as the results for the 2016-17 session are to be announced in a few days.
“The students need not worry about the court’s decision as I ensure that justice is will be given to all,” Union Minister of Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar said.
On May 23, CBSE was ordered by the Delhi High Court to continue with the grace marks policy, while many thought that it would bring relief to the students as they will have a chance to secure more marks. Now after this order by the Delhi HC things start to get more complicated as the board is likely to challenge the order by HC and they will possibly file a special petition in the Supreme Court to justify their decision to scrap the moderation policy, as reported by PTI.
As quoted in the report, a top government source said that in a high-level meeting chaired by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday the board has decided to take legal opinion before taking a final decision on finalising the date for the declaration of the results. R K Chaturvedi, the Chairman of CBSE said, “The court order is being studied in detail and we are trying that the results are not delayed.”
