Supreme court rejects plea against TN’s decision to fix cut off marks
The Supreme Court today dismissed a plea against the Tamil Nadu government's decision to fix 60 per cent cut off marks in the state Teacher Eligibility Test conducted this year. ‘We find it difficult to accede to the request of the counsel. The question as to whether the cut off marks stipulated for the reserved category candidates have to be reduced or not, is entirely a matter for the State Government to decide,’ a bench of justices KS Radhakrishnan and A K Sikri said.
‘The court exercising writ jurisdiction cannot grant such relaxation/concessional marks, as the same is the decision to be taken by the state government,’ it said.
