Bar exam grade disclosure writ to be heard on Monday, post-exam

Exclusive: The writ petition filed in the Delhi High Court seeking to force declaration of bar exam results beyond pass and fail will now be taken up for admission on Monday after failing to get listed today following a court holiday on Wedneday when it was originally meant to be heard.

Delhi University graduate Anoop Prakash Awasthi had filed a writ petition on 1 March challenging the evaluation methodology of the All India Bar Examination (AIBE). He aimed to oblige the Bar Council of India (BCI) to disclose the exam marks obtained by candidates.

Awasthi told Legally India: “The matter was supposed to be heard on Wednesday, I had filed on Monday second half, but Wednesday was declared a holiday after that it was supposed to be listed today.

“The file had gone missing in the registry for a day. I met Mr Sanjeev Sachdeva, who is the Bar Council of India’s standing counsel, and requested him to be in the court and he said that you mention it and I will be there in the afternoon. So, I mentioned it before justice Vikramjit Singh and he said that I know it’s an important matter and requires thorough hearing and it will be heard on Monday. I have seen the petition listed before Justice Muralidhar.”

The AIBE will take place this weekend on 6 March after it was postponed last year.
