SC notice to CBSE for high revaluation fees

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday issued notice to the CBSE on a plea seeking contempt action against the board for allegedly 'disobeying' the top court's order and charging exorbitant fees of up to Rs 1, 200 from students for obtaining copies of evaluated answer sheets.

A bench of justices Ranjan Gogoi, Navin Sinha and K M Joseph asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to respond to the plea within six weeks.

The contempt lea has alleged that the CBSE has willfully and deliberately disobeyed the directions of apex court, which had in 2016 said that the board should 'scrupulously' follow its 2011 verdict holding that the students have the fundamental and legal right to access their evaluated answer sheets under the Right to Information Act.

It has claimed that despite the apex court's direction, the CBSE had published a notification prescribing fee of Rs 1, 000 and Rs 1, 200 for students of class 10th and 12th respectively to obtain the evaluated answer sheets.

The petition has claimed that as per the court's direction, the fee prescribed under the 2012 RTI Rules should be charged from the students for obtaining the answer sheets.

It sought setting aside of the CBSE notification prescribing fee of Rs 1, 000 and Rs 1, 200 for the students for obtaining copies of the evaluated answer sheets.

The plea has also sought a direction to the CBSE to provide copies of evaluated answer sheets to the examinees only as per provisions of the RTU Act, 2005 and at the fees prescribed under the 2012 Rules.
