[ZESTCaste] HC stays order on negative marking for SC/ST

HC stays order on negative marking for SC/ST

Allahabad, May 25 (PTI) The Allahabad High Court today stayed a single
judge order whereby a circular of Uttar Pradesh government, relaxing
the system of negative marking for ST and SC candidates in PG medical
entrance examinations, was quashed.

A Division Bench comprising justices Prakash Chandra Verma and Ram
Autar Singh passed the interim order on a special appeal of the Uttar
Pradesh government challenging the May 20 order which had quashed the
circular whereby a provision was made for adding marks, deducted
because of negative marking, to the final tally of SC/ST candidates.

The April 6 circular had stated "sufficient number of reserved
candidates were not available for filling up all the vacant
seats...Thus the government had taken a decision that for SC/ST
candidates, the marks deducted by negative marking shall be added to
the marks obtained by them for determining their eligibility".
