HC cannot re-evaluate answer sheets, says SC

New Delhi: After declaring that sky was the limit for its powers to right a wrong, Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that courts have no mandate to re-evaluate an answer sheet even if za candidate had been awarded less marks in an examination.
A court cannot substitute its opinion — how much marks should be awarded to a candidate in an answer sheet — to that of an examiner, ruled a bench of Justices R V Raveendran and A KPatnaik.
Incidentally, the same bench had recently ruled that a candidate not satisfied with his marks was entitled to have a copy of his answer sheet if he made an application under the Right to Information Act.
