A division bench of Justice Rituraj Awasthi and Justice Abdul Moin gave this decision on a petition filed by Hrithik Shukla. The petitioner said that conducting this examination would be discriminatory against those students who have passed under the pre-board examination policy.
On the other hand, opposing the petition, Additional Advocate General Kuldeep Pati Tripathi argued that the petition has not been filed by any student. The organization of the petitioner Congress Party is the District President of Lalitpur in NSUI. In such a situation, this petition is politically motivated rather than student interest. At the same time, no student has challenged the examination policy of June 20, nor has called the examination prejudiced and discriminatory. The exam is being conducted only for the students who want to improve their marks. Thousands of students have applied for this. As such, this petition deserves to be dismissed. In view of this, the court dismissed the petition.
