Madras HC directs UGC to publish NET June 2012 results as per previous norms
17 May 2013

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.

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.

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.

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.
