Court orders to pay Rs. one lakh to girl student for erroneous low marks in exam

A bright Mhow girl got the shocker of her life when her class 10 results were declared and she got to know that she has scored a dismal 24 in Sanskrit. She, however, had scored over 80 in all her subjects and that prompted her to ask the Madhya Pradesh secondary education board for a revaluation of her Sanskrit paper.

After Madhya Pradesh High Court learnt that Mhow resident Khushbu Kayasth has scored 84 in Sanskrit and was erroneously given 24 by the examiner, it has ordered the education board to pay Rs one lakh to Kayasth.

A report in Hindustan Times says: A division bench of Justice PK Jaiswal and Justice DK Paliwal prstudentonounced the verdict on August 23, asking the board to take “appropriate departmental action” against the evaluator.

The order barred the evaluator from checking answer-scripts for three years.

Khushbu Kayasth has maintained that she was confident about her performance and that is why she had applied for a reassessment.
