CBSE Class 10 & 12 Exams to Begin in February Next Year

CBSE board exams 2019 will begin from the month of February and the entire exam schedule will be released next week, the central board said on Wednesday. The board has decided to conduct exams for Skill Education (Vocational) and related subjects in the second half of February.

The board’s decision comes in the backdrop of Delhi HC order dated July 11, 2018, which had directed the Delhi University and CBSE to ensure from the commencing academic year that the result of CBSE, including results of re-evaluation, “are taken into account whilst determining the cut-off date for admission to colleges of the University of Delhi.”

Following the order, the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar had also instructed both the varsity and CBSE to comply with the court’s directions.

Apart from the 40 different vocational subjects, the board will conduct the exams for Typography and Computer Applications (English), Web applications, Graphics, Office Communication, etc in February as these subjects have larger practical component, and shorter theory papers.

Due to the advancement of datasheet, the board can release the main and re-evaluation results slightly earlier to facilitate students to get admissions in degree courses in various universities in India, the board said in a media release.

Last year the board conducted the examinations from March to April, and a total of 10.76 lakh students registered for the exam out of which 10.20 lakh had appeared.

Aadhaar Verdict - Aadhaar Card Cannot Be Mandatory For NEET, CBSE, UGC

NEET cannot make Aadhaar Card mandatory as per the latest Supreme Court ruling announced as Aadhaar Verdict on September 26, 2018. The same goes for CBSE, UGC.

The hearing was on a bunch of petitions that challenged the constitutional validity of Aadhaar Card.

Verdict was delivered by a five-judge bench comprising of Justices Ashok Bhushan, D Y Chandrachud, A M Khanwilkar, A K Sikri and Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra who led the bench.

Point number 59 of Writ Petition (Civil) No. 494 of 2012 & connected matters says

The challenge is directed at the constitutional validity of the following facets of Aadhaar:

(vii) Actions on the part of the authorities to make Aadhaar mandatory even where not covered by Section 7, inter alia: Actions by CBSE, NEET, JEE and UGC requirements for scholarship.

Point number 321 says

No doubt, the Government cannot take umbrage under the aforesaid provision to enlarge the scope of subsidies, services and benefits. ‘Benefits’ should be such which are in the nature of welfare schemes for which resources are to be drawn from the Consolidated Fund of India.

Therefore actions by CBSE, NEET, JEE and UGC requirements for scholarship shall not be covered under Section 7, unless it is demonstrated that the expenditure is incurred from Consolidated Fund of India. Further, the expression ‘benefit’ has to be read ejusdem generis with the preceding word ‘subsidies’.

Point number 323 (c) says

On that basis, CBSE, NEET, JEE, UGC etc. cannot make the requirement of Aadhaar mandatory as they are outside the purview of Section 7 and are not backed by any law.

NEET is the national level medical entrance exam, which is until now held by CBSE and now NTA will conduct NEET 2019. With this judgement it is now clear that Aadhaar Card will not be mandatory for filling application form which is about to be available from November 01, 2018.

Until last year, it was compulsory to enter Aadhaar Card data to fill application form of various entrance exams such as NEET, JEE Main, UGC NET. Students from Assam, JnK, Meghalaya were given exceptions.

Justice Sikri in his judgement annulled those parts of the law that insofar made Aadhaar compulsory for private corporations. The document is constitutionally valid but may only be asked for welfare schemes, IT returns, and for linking to PAN card.

That the Aadhaar Act should not have been a money bill was stated by Justice Chandrachud in his judgement. He furthermore instructed telecom companies to delete all Aadhaar data. However Justice Ashok Bhushan said that (companies) seeking biometric data is not a violation of individual privacy.

The Aadhaar Verdict today strikes off sections 33 (2), 47, 57 of the Aadhaar Act. Section 33 (2) allowed information including identity and authentication to be revealed, in interest of national security. As per Section 47, only UIDAI could file criminal complaints for data breach. Section 57 let private entities use Aadhaar details to authenticate identity of persons.
