The Supreme Court on Monday clarified that the students appearing for CBSE Private, Patrachar and 2nd Compartment exams for Class 12 can apply for higher admissions under the UGC and AICTE provisionally even before their results are declared, subject to undertaking to produce their results before the concerned college within one week of the declaration of results.

The Court passed this order based on the submissions made by the counsels of UGC and AICTE that such students can make provisional applications for admissions.

The Court also recorded the undertaking made by the counsel of CBSE that the results will be declared before September 30.

A Bench comprising Justice AM Khanwilkar, Justice Hrishikesh Roy and Justice CT Ravikumar was hearing a writ petition filed seeking directions to CBSE to declare results of Class XII Private Patrachar/2nd Compartment Students expeditiously.

Advocate Anjaneya Mishra, appearing for the petitioner, submitted that nearly one lakh students are taking the 2nd Compartment, Private and Patrachar exams. He added that many admissions to colleges have already opened and hence the petitioners are apprehensive of losing out seats before the declaration of their results.

Based on the submissions made on behalf of UGC and AICTE, the bench dictated the following order :

"The principal grievance of petitioners is that CBSE may delay announcing of results of Class XII Private, Patrachar & 2nd Compartment Students resultantly denying them admission for higher studies. The counsel for CBSE on instructions stated that results of all students including Private, Patrachar & 2nd Compartment Students will be declared before 30 September as undertaken before this Court on an earlier occasion. That position is reiterated & recorded.

Counsel for UGC pointed out even if results are not available and admission process for higher studies commences before 30 September, the petitioners and similarly situated studednts can apply for admission on provisional basis subject to producing the results declared by CBSE on or before 30 September.

The Counsel for AICTE submits that petitioners will be permitted provisional admission subject to producing results declared by CBSE.

In other words, petitioners can apply to relevant courses for pursuing higher studies on provisional basis and on giving undertaking that results as declared by CBSE will be submitted to concerned college within one week of its issue"

Advocate Rupesh Kumar appeared for the CBSE and Advocate Harish Pandey appeared for the AICTE.
