Yes, now students don’t have to pay for their revaluation.A sigh of relief for students it is that they are no longer required to pay for their authentication of answer sheets.
According to a Times of India report,Delhi High Court refused to stay the CIC order which asked the Delhi University to allow inspection under the Right to Information (RTI).Students received this news with open arms who chose RTI to get their sheets examined rather than paying University a hefty amount for the same.
This matter began in 2016 when a former law student sought inspection under RTI which dragged for two years.The student later approached CIC and the verdict was in favour of the student which made the University of Delhi to probe the answer sheets as directed under Right To Information Act Section 2(j) – “larger public interest”.
According to the information provided by the University under RTI, it has earned Rs 2,89,12,310 between 2015-16 and 2017-18.
High Court further adjudicated that student’s rights will be questioned for further inspection of their answer sheets and next hearing is going to take place regarding the matter on 30th January next year.
