RBSE Challenges Human Rights in Court
Just after the Rajasthan Class 12 Results were announced the SHRC had directed the authorities of RBSE to re-evaluate copies of students, who were failed in English subject in the results of Class XII Boards announced recently.

Nearly 350 students had filed their complaint with the commission stating that their answer-sheets of English subject were not properly assessed resulting in the Board failing them or giving them poor marks. All the students belong to schools located in Hingonia area of Jaipur district.

Taking prompt action on the complaints filed by the affected students, the commission had ordered a detailed inquiry into the plea. The students had procured their answer-sheets through RTI and had then submitted to the commission, which noted the discrepancies in the assessment and subsequent markings.

But now, the RBSE (Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education) has come across a decision not to recheck any answer sheets and in-turn wants to challenge the orders of the State Human Rights Commission in the Court.

The board will also form a high-powered committee on the complaints given by students in checking English paper of Class XII commerce

A meeting of the board of management on Saturday discussed the orders of HRC that directed it for revaluation of the answer sheets of Class XII commerce students in three private schools of Jaipur district. The commission also directed it to implement the orders by June 21.

P S Verma, chairman of the board said "The board has decided not to evaluate any answer sheets again. We have already notified the commission that there is no procedure and by-laws in the board to re-evaluate the copies."

"The urgent meeting of the board of management decided that legal advice will be taken on this issue, and it will appeal in the appropriate court for relief," added Verma.

The board will intimate the state HRC about the decision taken in the meeting. There were nineteen members in the meeting, and all voted not to implement the directions of HRC and approach appropriate court.

This is the first time when a commission has directed the board for revaluation of copies. Now, its all time to see each other at the Court.
