The Bombay high court on Monday, 28th May said answer sheets cannot be assessed in a mechanical manner. The court wanted the state government to reply as to what measures it took to ensure that answer sheets are assessed in time. Avacation division bench of Justice R. Y. Ganoo and Justice Nitin Jamdar was hearing a petition filed by the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad seeking action against teachers and associations, including the Maharashtra Federation of University and College Teachers’, which gave a call to boycott assessment work.
ABVPs advocate Uday Warunjikar argued that university rules stipulate that papers are assessed within 45 days of the last exam. Pointing out that the strike has delayed the assessment schedule by two months, he said, how much work has been done and how much time is required Results have to be declared within a specified time. Those applying for competitive exams will suffer. The judges observed that it is up to individual universities to examine the workload of assessment and direct their professors on ways to tackle it. Don’t presume that universities will not look after the interests of students, said Justice Ganoo.Declining to direct examiners to put in extra hours, the judges observed that an examiner would be able to assess answer sheets at the most for 5-6 hours a day. It will be injustice to students. It will end in an examiner putting a figure at the end of answer sheets, said Justice Ganoo. The judges directed the state and Mumbai University to file affidavits on steps being taken for timely evaluation of answer sheets. They also directed that a competent officer remain present in court to answer on behalf of the government.
