Madras HC directs UGC to publish NET June 2012 results as per previous norms

The Madras High Court has directed the University Grants
Commission to issue certificates of candidates who passed in the National
Eligibility Test (NET) held in June 2012, as per previous criteria.

The high court has asked the UGC to issue certificates
within 30 days.  

The High Court allowed a batch of writ petitions filed by
candidates who appeared for NET in June, 2012 seeking to direct UGC and
Bharathiar University to issue them pass certificates of NET and SET without
insisting on additional criteria of getting average of marks in all three
papers to qualify in the examinations.

Justice D Hariparanthanam said the court had observed that
fixing of higher aggregate marks as 65 per cent, 60 per cent and 55 per cent
for three categories, that too just before announcement of the result, could
not be justified as the same is not supportable in law in light of principles
already discussed.

What was absent in regulation could not be introduced at the
fag end of the exam just before results were announced, whatever the
justification was, he said.

The HC said that the petitioners, who got separate minimum
marks prescribed in the notifications for Papers I, II and III should, be
considered as qualified and be given the certificates for passing National
Eligibility Test (NET)/State Eligibility Test (SET) within 30 days.

Petitioner, N Saraswathi submitted before the court that the
UGC had fixed minimum qualification for appointing teachers and academic staff
in universities and colleges and other steps for maintenance of standards in
higher education.

UGC also issued notification on June 4, 2012 for NET and fixed
maximum marks for pass in three papers for various categories including
general, OBCs and PWD/SC/ST. NET results was also published by UGC on its
website in September 2012, the petitioner contended.

Just before publication of NET/SET results, an additional
criteria was fixed for passing the tests Saraswathi said.

Due to change in criteria, the petitioners did not secure
pass mark in NET/SET and so approached the high court seeking a direction to
declare them as successful in NET/SET exams, reported Zee News.

  1. whatever the decisions taken by UGC is totally injustice to candidates.UGC should given the cut of marks system before applying for NET. It is a good move by court. This will certainly help many candidates who have cleared NET but could not qualify due to additional criteria.UGC should give clarification immediately.Otherwise it will become another crime of UGC.

  2. Is there any update of June 2012 NET. Is UGC going to declare the results. Please do update it in this website.

  6. See how jagrati sharma has commented: “I was got net exam in 58% marks plz issue my e cartificate as soon as possible plz humbly request i say .”
    It happens only in India. She can’t write proper English and she says she got 58% in NET. To complain one should be qualified.

  7. I have noticed students who can’t write/speak proper English (at-least without grammatical mistakes) are getting NET certificate (though i am also a NET qualified Ph.D. Scholar), however, there are some other students, who are shouting that students with NET are comparatively better than the Ph.D. holders. Fortunately I don’t have such perception but still a question pokes me again and again that how one can have such perception without going through the process.
