The Bombay High Court will be holding a hearing on the petition to postpone the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2023 and remove the 75 percent eligibility criteria on January 10, 2023. The court has requested the petitioner to present the JEE Main 2023 brochure. The petition, filed by child rights activist Anubha Srivastava Sahai on January 4, was postponed to January 10 since the petitioner had not included the brochure. The acting chief justice SV Gangpurwala and J Sandeep V Marne expressed their views, saying, “You should have included it with the petition. Matter on January 10.”

At the prior hearing, the petitioner informed the court that the JEE Mains 2023 dates were conflicting with multiple board exams 2023 and that the 75% requirement reinstated this year would have an impact on numerous students. In response to this, counsel Rui Rodriguez representing the National Testing Agency (NTA) mentioned that the criteria pertains to Class 12 scores.

Rodriguez mentioned that the Class 12 result is only taken into account for admission in engineering courses, not for being eligible to take the entrance exam. The petitioner’s lawyer then argued that if this is the case, there is no point in participating in the JEE Main 2023 if they don’t have the score.

In addition to requesting a delay in the exam and a lessening of the requirements, the petition also mentioned that in the past, the NTA would typically announce the IIT JEE Main 2023 exam dates two to three months before the exam. However, the sudden announcement of the exams this time would not provide the students enough time to prepare.
