The Karnataka High Court today held that this year's Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) examination cannot be stalled, even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread in the state.
The Court thus refused to grant interim relief in terms of postponing or cancelling the exam, which is scheduled to be held on July 30, 31 and August 1.
The Division Bench of Justices Aravind Kumar and MI Arun passed the order in the matter today since Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka was unavailable.
The Bench further directed in its order that on no ground should a student be denied the opportunity to write the exam. It further directed the authorities to provide transport to students on a case-to-case basis, and not just to COVID positive students.
The Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is required to be uploaded on the Karnataka Examinations Authority website by 8 PM today.
