                      W.P.(C) No.3249 of 2011
                     -------------------------------
           Dated this the 8th day of February, 2011

                           J U D G M E N T

The petitioners are students undergoing the B.Tech

Degree course in Mar Baselius Christian College of Engineering and

Technology, Idukki. They appeared for the combined I and II

semester examination conducted by the Mahatma Gandhi University in

April,2010. The results were published on 29.9.2010. The petitioners

and others failed in the paper “Engineering Graphics”. It is stated that

the petitioners have thereupon applied for revaluation of their answer

scripts. This writ petition is filed seeking expeditious revaluation of

their answer scripts on the ground that unless the revaluation is

expeditiously held, they will be put to serious prejudice.

2. When the writ petition came up for hearing on

1.2.2011, the learned standing counsel was directed to get

instructions as to whether petitioners have applied for revaluation of

their answer scripts in the subject “Engineering Graphics”.

3. Today, when the writ petition came up for further

hearing, Sri.T.A.Shaji, the learned standing counsel appearing for the

Mahatma Gandhi University submitted that petitioners 1 to 7 have

applied for revaluation in time, but the 8th petitioner has not

2

submitted an application for revaluation. He also submitted that the

University will take steps to revalue the answer scripts of petitioners

1 to 7 and communicate the results to them expeditiously. In the

light of the said submission and having regard to the fact that more

than 4 months have passed after the result of the combined I and II

semester B.Tech Degree Examination was published, I am of the

opinion that the University should take expeditious steps to revalue

the answer scripts of petitioners 1 to 7.

I accordingly dispose of the writ petition with a direction

to the respondents to take expeditious steps to have the answer

scripts of petitioners 1 to 7 in the subject “Engineering Graphics” of

the combined I and II semester B.Tech Degree Examination held in

April, 2010 revalued and to communicate the results to them

expeditiously and in any event within 8 weeks from the date of receipt

of a certified copy of this judgment.

P.N. RAVINDRAN,
JUDGE.
