Submissions of the Petitioner

The petitioner has submitted that the respondent had absolutely no grounds for taking the said decision. He also submitted that the mismatch in code was not the fault of the students and they must not be punished for the same. Further, it was stated that the exam was an open book exam and thus there is no scope of malpractice in the same. it was submitted that merely because the respondent held the exam they can not withhold the results without a valid reason. It is important to consider the future of the lawyers who appeared for the exam and awaited the result, submitted by the petitioner. He has further contended that the entire centre must not be held for cheating, rather an individual guilty should only be held accountable.

They also contended that the candidates of these centres would be allowed to re-appear for the exam without any fee. They submitted that the ground for the notification is ‘mass cheating’. the ruling in Bihar School Examination case was brought to the notice. it was held in that case that if an exam as a whole was cancelled, it is not necessary to give an opportunity to each candidate to represent their case.

On July 30, Bar Council postponed the examination indefinitely. The petitioner stated that this postponement has caused prejudice to lawyers like him.
