Delhi High Court rejects plea challenging normalisation procedure adopted for JEE Mains

Normalisation is a procedure undertaken by the National Testing Agency (NTA). It compares a candidate’s scores across the question papers of multiple sessions so that a student is not deprived or given advantage by the difficulty level of a particular session’s exam.

In an order passed on February 27, Justice C Hari Shankar rejected in limine (at the threshold) the plea filed by one Setu Vinit Goenka against the normalisation procedure.

The Court said that normalisation irons out the discrepancy which arises because of the unavoidable possibility of different papers being of different difficulty levels.

“This Court does not possess the expertise to subjectively go into the intricacies of the normalisation procedure. These are matters of academic policy, in which the Court has to defer to the authorities, unless the procedure is found to be so arbitrary or resulting in constitutionally unsustainable results which the court does not uphold at any cost. No such case has been made out in the averments contained in the present writ petition,” the Court said.
