HC Issues Notices to IITs, HRD Ministry; Asks to Clarify JEE Selection Process

Issuing notices to 15 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the ministry of human resource development, the Delhi High Court has asked them to clarify their process of selecting students through the annual joint entrance examination (JEE), said media reports citing a teacher who filed the case.

“The IIT-JEE selection procedure is a fraud. I have been fighting against it for four years and finally the Delhi High Court has issued notice to the ministry, the IIT council and the Joint Admission Board that conducts the entrance,” Rajeev Kumar, a professor from IIT-Kharagpur, was quoted as saying.

“The entrance in its current format is not transparent. No one knows how they select the candidates,” he was quoted as saying.

“Though Kolkata High Court dismissed my public interest litigation, I moved the Delhi High Court,” the computer science professor was quoted as saying.

Prashant Bhusan, the counsel fighting the case for Kumar, said that court has the three parties to reply by mid May, said reports.

Kumar said he has also met Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal on this issue, said reports.
