UGC NET : Changes illegal - Kerala HC
Mathrubhumi Education Online
Kochi, Dec 17, 2012 : The High Court of Kerala today declared illegal the modifications brought for the evaluation of UGC NET answer papers. The court observed that modifications made after pronouncement of the examination is totally against the spirit of law and should be considered as arbitrary. Justice T R Ramachandran Nair who heared a bunch of petitions of more than 7,000 candidates ordered that the petitioners should be treated as passed in the examination.
The NET is conducted by the University Grants Commission for Junior Research Fellowships and Lectureships. Candidates who clear NET in the latter category are eligibe for employment in any university in the country. On 24th of June 2012, the NET was conducted in a new avatar with the paper in MCQ format.
A notification issued before the June exam said candidates will have to score a minimum percentage in all three papers. For paper-1 and 2, the minimum was set at 40% for general category while the reserved category candidates were allowed a 5% relief. For paper 3, the minimum was set at 50% for general category, 45% for OBC and 40% for other reserved categories. All students were given a carbon copy of their answer sheets and when the answer keys were uploaded on the UGC site, the results were 'unofficially' declared.
But later just before the publication of the results on September 18, the UGC in their website put another notification, saying that candidates need an aggregate of 65% in all three papers (60% for OBC and 55% for others) to be eligible for lectureship. The main contention of the petitioners was against this unprecedented notification.
The counsel for UGC in his submission said that 5.75 lakhs students appeared in the test and as per the modified conditions 43,000 candidates qualified. last year this was 7,500, he said. He also submitted before the court that there is already a provision in the original notification giving powers for making necessary changes if required.
will verdict applicable on all the affected candidates or only petitioners???????????
The hard copy of the court verdict get within a week of time.The confusion is now "its applicable to all" or " its applicable to the petitioners only".
The newspaper/online sources are not reveal the truth and make confusion to the public. So pls wait for the original hard copy of the verdict and if its for petitioners only then file a writ petition in your highcourt and pointing that the same verdict applicable in your case also ..

Order’s benefit for all eligible candidates: court STAFF REPORTER SHARE · PRINT · T+ Quashing of new qualifying criteria prescribed by UGC after holding NET The benefit of a single Bench order quashing the new qualifying criteria prescribed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) after holding the National Eligibility Test (NET) for lectureships will be available to all eligible candidates, the Kerala High Court held on Tuesday. Justice T.R. Ramachandran Nair had earlier held that UGC regulations did not confer any right on the UGC to fix high marks after holding the NET. He also maintained that such criteria cannot be introduced just before the announcement of the results by executive orders. The introduction of the new criteria was not supported by law. In his order on Tuesday, Justice P.R. Ramachandra Menon said the apex court had earlier held that if a judgment was rather declaratory, it would be applicable to all irrespective of the fact that they were petitioners to the case or not. The verdict passed by the single judge was declaratory in nature, the court said disposing of a batch of petitions seeking to obtain the benefits of the judgment by the single judge. Justice T.R. Ramachandran Nair had observed that the students were jolted when the UGC all of a sudden prescribed the percentage of the aggregate marks. http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-kerala/orders-b...
