SC stays Madras HC order awarding 196 grace marks to NEET Tamil students

The Supreme Court today stayed an order of the Madurai bench of Madras High Court awarding 196 grace marks to NEET students who had opted to write the examination in Tamil language on account of error in translation.

A bench of Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao stayed the order and issued notice on a plea of the CBSE challenging the high court order.

The bench observed that it appears that after the judgment, the students who opted for the Tamil language are in the advantageous position over others.

 
 The bench posted the matter for hearing after two weeks and asked the parties to come out with a solution to deal with the situation saying that the marks cannot be doled out in that fashion.
 
The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court had on July 10 ordered the CBSE to grant 196 marks that is 4 marks each for 49 erroneously translated questions in the Tamil version of this year's NEET to the students who took the exam in the regional language.
