The Madras High Court Bench here today came down heavily on the CBSE observing that it was being autocratic in the matter related to errors in the Tamil version of this year’s National Eligibility cum Entrance Test.

A bench of justices C T Selvam and A M Basheer Ahamed made the observation while hearing a public interest litigation filed by CPI-M leader T K Rangarajan, seeking award of full marks for 49 ‘erroneous’ questions in the Tamil version of the NEET.

It said that despite knowing that a PIL on the matter was filed and it was due for hearing, the CBSE had released the results.

“Why did they do so?”, the court asked.

Referring to the CBSE’s submission, the bench said, “How do you decide the right answers for the questions based on majority view? CBSE is accepting even wrong answers under the pretext of majority decision. How is that in Bihar state so many students got through the examination?” it asked.

Later, it adjourned the hearing on the PIL without mentioning any date.

The petitioner has submitted that key words in the Tamil questions were wrongly translated from English and this caused confusion for the students.

In the previous hearing, the court had asked the CBSE to file an affidavit stating among others on whether any exercise was undertaken to ascertain which of the English words in the syllabi for science subjects were incapable of being reproduced in an equivalent word in Tamil.

In a very interesting case, the Madhya Pradesh High Court ordered that a woman has the right to know the remuneration of her husband.

The bench of Justice S. K. Seth and Nandita Dubey ruled the verdict on the petition of Sunita Jain who wanted to have a higher maintenance from her estranged husband, Pawan Kumar, stating that he was a senior officer in BSNL. Sunita was getting a maintenance of Rs. 7,000 per month.

Counsel for the petitioner asserted that Sunita’s husband is on a reputed designation with state-run BSNL.  Sunita had filed an RTI in the case to get the information of Pawan’s salary after a trial court rejected her plea.

The issue reached to the CIC office where the in an order dated July 27, 2017, it asked the Central Public Information Officer of BSNL to provide the salary details of Pawan Kumar. Consequently, the husband challenged the CIC order before a single bench in MP High Court which set aside the CC order.

Sunita did not stop here. She challenged the single bench order before a double bench in the MP High Court which, in an order on May 15, allowed the writ appeal of Sunita and upheld the order of CIC stating that a wife has the right to know about his husband’s salary. The bench observed a wife cannot be denied for this information by considering her third party.
