IIT JEE Advance 2017 - Supreme Court Halts JEE Advanced Counselling

On Friday - The Supreme Court ordered a halt to further counselling & admissions to IIT in respect of JEE (Advanced) exam. The apex court restrained IITs across the country till further orders from conducting counselling or admitting students subsequent to the JEE this year.


A bench of justices Dipak Misra and A M Khanwilkar in the order said, “we are an inclined to direct that no counselling or admission to the seats in IIT-JEE (Advance) 2017 shall take place until further order.”

The bench also restrained all the high courts from entertaining any writ petition relating to IIT admissions.

It additional directed the Registrar Generals of the High Courts to inform by Saturday the nature of cases and the number of petitioners involved in respect of JEE-IIT (Advanced) pending before them.

On June 30, in a petition filed by IIT aspirant Aishwarya Agarwal, the Supreme Court sought Centre Government's response on a plea seeking quashing of the IIT Joint Entrance Examination 2017 rank list and awarding of additional marks to all candidates who had appeared in the test. 

The petition, had required the court's direction to declare that the action of awarding "bonus marks" to the candidates who had appeared in the JEE (Advanced) 2017 examination was wrong and dishonored her right, as well as that of other students.

The petition sought a direction from the court for preparation of a fresh all-India rank list after rectifying the scores of JEE (Advanced) and also reward marks for the incorrect questions to the candidates who had attempted the right answers. As an alternative, the petitioner said the institution should behavior fresh examination and prepares a fresh merit list or grants all students another opportunity to appear in the examination to be conducted next year.

"As directed by the Honourable Supreme Court of India on 7th July 2017, admission and counselling process for JEE (Advanced) 2017 has been suspended till further orders," said a notification posted on the official website of JEE Advanced 2017.
