What is going to happen now?
In a big relief to IIT-Kanpur, a division bench of the Madras high court on Tuesday stayed an order directing the institute to redo the rank list of JEE Advanced 2018 giving preference to candidates who answered numerical values rounded off to two decimal points. When the evaluation of exam had been already done, the order of the single judge is totally unwarranted, a division bench of Justice Huluvadi G Ramesh and Justice Dhandapani said. When the appeal came up for hearing, senior counsel for IIT Kanpur Vijay Narayanan submitted that the order which has been passed after evaluation of the exam has created much confusion among students and their parents. When the petitioner has already secured a seat of her choice such an order is totally not necessary, he added. Concurring with the submissions, the bench stayed the order of single judge.
