JEE Mains: Bombay HC refuses to defer test, but allows applicants unable to appear because of floods to write to the NTA [Read Order]

"If any of the students is unable to attend the examination on the centre due to flood situation, a representation can be made through the local agency to the Apex Body of the JEE-Main Examination", the Court held.

In an early morning hearing, the Nagpur Bench of the Bombay High Court considered whether the flood situation in districts of Maharashtra necessitated the deferral of the Joint Entrance Exams (JEE) which is scheduled to commence today.

A Bench of Justices Ravi K Deshpande and Pushpa Ganediwala disposed of the plea, noting with appreciation the steps taken by the National testing Agency (NTA) to meet with the situation caused by the floods.
