Zero marks wrongly for CBSE 10th Class Student: Punjab High Court fine Rs.30,000 to the School

The Punjab and Haryana High Court recently fined Rs 30,000 to a school for wrongly awarding zero marks to a class 10 student in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examination.

Justice Vikas Bahl said, “Not only has the petitioner suffered due to the fault of the school, but the respondent CBSE school has also been made to bear the costs of the litigation despite no fault of its own.”

As a result of the school’s negligence, the marks of two female students with the same name were changed. As a result, the student who scored zero marks could not participate in the twelfth-class board exams.

Therefore, the student approached the court demanding that the result be amended and the revised mark sheet is given. She requested CBSE to intervene in the case.

Then the school said that the revised marks were not submitted on the online platform within the stipulated time. She lamented that despite her repeated requests, the school kept saying that the application had been sent to the board and did not take any action.

Hearing the argument, the court said, “The petitioner has passed his 11th class examination but due to the fault of the school, she has not been able to write her 12th class examination. If appropriate direction is not given in favor of the petitioner, their future will be in trouble.

Rs.30,000 fine to the school for negligence. The school was also directed to pay the fine amount to the CBSE to cover the litigation costs for unnecessarily dragging the CBSE into litigation.

At the same time, the court overturned the decision of CBSE not to correct the marks of the applicant and directed them to declare the results afresh.
