Bombay HC To Hear Plea Regarding 75% Eligibility criteria plea today

Mumbai, 24th April 2023: According to attorney Anubha Sahai, the Bombay High Court will hear the petition over the 75% eligibility criterion today because it is item number 52 in the court.

The petitioners claim that the 75 percent eligibility standard isn’t a “true reflection of their actual eligibility,” so they want the National Testing Agency (NTA) to eliminate it.

The statement in the PIL submitted in court, “The marks scored by them is not a true reflection of their actual ability therefore those students with fewer marks than the eligibility criteria (75 percent) for this year’s examinations can score very high marks in the upcoming JEE Main 2023, and if a fair chance is denied to them that will affect the future (of) lakhs of bright (candidates).”

The justices questioned the purpose behind the 75% qualifying threshold after the hearing, which was first held on April 6. The petitioners claimed that the board’s report on candidates in the top 20 percentile had not been provided since 2019.

Additionally, a student petitioned the court separately to require applicants to attend a third JEE session. A third JEE session has been requested by students for May 2023.
