AIEEE Merit List Challenged in Delhi HC Pranshu Gupta, through his counsel Ashok Aggarwal, has moved the Delhi High Court challenging the CBSC merit list alleging four questions were wrongly framed due to which he scored less mark, as a result of which he was unable to get through the All India Engineering Entrance Exams (AIEEE) 2012.

Pranshu Gupta has sought an order to the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE), which had conducted the entrance exams, to prepare a fresh merit list. In his plea, Gupta contended saying “the present petition is against the impugned action of CBSE in framing wrong questions being Question Nos 21, 27, 32 and 47 in the question paper for AIEEE-2012 held on May 19 and in assessing the marks of petitioner(Gupta) on the basis of the answer key which provides wrong answers to the said questions resulting in lowering the rank of the petitioner.”

He has sought the court to quash the entire merit list as prepared by CBSE and direct the board to prepare a fresh merit list after deleting those questions. Gupta claimed he had chosen the correct options for all the four questions in view of the text book on the subject but the answer key had provided wrong answers and his marks were assessed as per the answer key.

Issuing notices to CBSE and also to three engineering colleges, which Gupta had preferred in the form to do his B Tech course, Justice G S Sistani recently sought their response by September 12 on Gupta’s petition.
