The Delhi university withdrew its writ petition from the court on July 26, which challenged allowing the inspection of answer sheets as provisioned under the RTI Act in view of the Supreme Court judgment in the Paras Jain v. Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) case.
Considering the volume of complaints the university gets every year regarding the flawed checking of papers from students is a tedious task and requires huge attention as well as analysis.
This RTI Act will be more accessible to poor students who are unable to pay the fees of Rs.750 for revaluation. As reported earlier by this website, DU had between 2015-16 and 2017-18 earned over Rs 3 crore by charging students for rechecking and revaluation of their answer-sheets.
The debate will still continue whether the examiners and the students have their own wish of paying the fees for revaluation otherwise the wave off is considered by Supreme Court over the case of RTI.
