Kochi: The Kerala High Court said that delay in declaring the CBSE class 10 results cannot be a reason for denying students admission to state schools.
The court extended the deadline for application till Friday. It will again consider the matter on Friday afternoon.
CBSE is likely to declare the result in a day or two, justice V Raja Vijayaraghavan said.
Malappuram natives Ameen Salim and Muhammad Sinan approached the court seeking extension of the application period. The government told the court that it would earmark 10 per cent of the seats for CBSE students and provide them a supplementary allotment. However, the recommendation was rejected by the court.
The state argued that postponing the application will affect the entire admission process and the beginning of the academic year of class 11. As of now, the state plans to start classes on August 17. It is unclear when CBSE would declare results.
The initial deadline for the application was July 18 which was extended till Friday as per the court direction. The state argues it cannot further delay the process.
