- Supreme Court’s warning to Andhra Pradesh government
- Warning about organizing 12th board
- The court said – even if something happens to the child…
10th and 12th board exams have been canceled in most states regarding Corona. But the Andhra Pradesh government is adamant about conducting the 12th board examination. The matter is now being heard in the Supreme Court. The top court warned the state government in a stern tone and said that if anything happened to a single child, the state government would have to pay the consequences. The court said that if anyone has died, then the state government may have to pay a compensation of 1 crore. The court told the Andhra government that it would not allow the 12th board exams to be conducted in the states until the safety of all the children was ensured.
The court on Thursday directed the states to issue an internal assessment policy on the lines of CBSE, within 10 states and declare the results by July 31. On the other hand, the court told the Andhra government, adamant about conducting the 12th board, that it will not allow the examination to be conducted until it is ensured that the lives of 5.2 lakh students will not be in danger due to these examinations.
A bench of Justices M Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari asked the Andhra government why it wanted to conduct physical examinations when such a dangerous variant of corona is spreading and other states have canceled the examinations. The court warned that if there was even one death due to the conduct of the examination, it would order compensation of Rs 1 crore to the state. The Andhra Pradesh government on Wednesday assured the Supreme Court that it will successfully conduct the Class XII board examinations as there are no other reliable alternatives for evaluation of state board students.
The state government has told the court that it will likely conduct the 12th class examination in the last week of July and the schedule of the examination in this regard will be released soon. In an affidavit filed through State Standing Counsel Mahfooz-e-Nazki, the state government said that the cases of Kovid-19 are decreasing rapidly in the state. The state government said that as on June 20, there were 5,646 cases of Kovid-19 in the state. The number of infection cases on 21 June was 5,541 and on 22 June 4,169. And comparing with these dates of the previous month, there were 22,610 cases of infection on 20 May, 20,937 on 21 May and 19,981 on 22 May.
The Andhra government said experts have been consulted and believed it would be practical to conduct the test. Accordingly, the state government will try to conduct the examinations in the last week of July. The apex court is hearing petitions seeking directions to the state governments not to conduct board examinations in view of the Kovid-19 pandemic. The court had said on Tuesday that if someone died, we would hold the state responsible.
