ICAI to Give copies of answersheets, court tells centre

The Delhi High Court on Thursday directed the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) to provide students with certified copies of answersheets under the Right to Information Act.
Justice S Ravindra Bhat dismissed contentions raised by the institute that answersheets fell beyond the purview of the RTI, holding that students were well within their rights to access them.
ICAI is an institute. You should apply pragmatism and set examples for others. You should start by yourself... Many institutes do that and allow students to inspect their copies," Justice Bhat told the ICAI, which had challenged a Central Information Commission verdict to provide certified copies of papers to students who failed the exams.
Additional Solicitor General Parag Tripathi, appearing for ICAI, submitted that the Supreme Court in its order of 2007 rejected the candidates' right to demand answersheets.

Decision taken by The Delhi Court against Institute is absolutely correct and Appreciable.

We obey institute words let c whether institute follows decision of court..

But the correction will be strict if they do this

What s the big use of giving answer sheets ya...
The institute does not have a
re-correction option, only re totalling is available.
I think the appelant should better drop this case as it is fruitless.

well at least a student who has failed will know where he committed the mistake in his last attempt. A very welcome step taken by the high court.This will usher in transparency in the evaluation process.

This is a very good judgement in favour of the student fraternity of CA course. This will help in two ways, for years people have been saying that CA results are based on requirements and pass percentage is determined by that, if thats true, then valuation will be fair enough after this judgement, and the students can check the answer scripts and correct themselves if they have committed any mistakes. As far as revaluation is concerned, we have to take the matter forward with higher authorities and hope for better result.

the very purpose of the decision is to benefit more to the students who are not able to pass after several attempts also. So it should not be taken otherwise by the current students.

ICAI should publish the answer sheets of first 5 rank holders and the answer sheets of the topper in every subject.
It will be helpful for students who have failed the exams to prepare for the next exam.
Fresh candidates will come to know what is expected from them.
