Delhi High Court : CBSE’s decision to scrap its ‘moderation policy’ is “unfair and irresponsible”

The High Court of Delhi termed as “unfair and irresponsible” the CBSE’s decision to scrap its ‘moderation policy’ under which grace marks are given to students in exams for difficult questions and asked why it cannot be implemented from next year.

The Bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Pratibha M. Singh therefore observed, “We are satisfied that grave and irreparable loss and damage would ensure to the students if interim relief is not granted. It is therefore directed that so far as evaluation of the current students who have undertaken CBSE Class X and Class XII examination in the year 2017, the respondents shall follow the declared policy of 2016 including the moderation policy which was in vogue on the date when they submitted their application forms.”

The petition, moved by a parent and a lawyer, has said that the policy was changed by way of a notification after the exams for the year were held and hence would have a drastic impact on the students.

The petitioners, Rakesh Kumar and advocate Ashish Verma, have said that the notification is not yet available on the CBSE’s website.
