You may be allowed to write the examination but the result will be upheld unless you furnish the original marks card, transfer certificate, and degree certificate. This exceptional judgment was passed by the Hon’ble High court of Karnataka in the matter of M/S Srirama Jyothika v. Karnataka state law university and others, [writ petition 6055 of 2021] headed by Justice R. Devdas.
In the present case, the petitioner was admitted to a Three-year law course (LLB). The petitioner was exempted to write her examination and the hall ticket was not provided to her on the fact that she did not furnish the original marks card, transfer certificate, and degree certificate of her previous college from where she recently passed. The petitioner after completing her 12th in the year 2017, took admission in BBA, to the respondent 3rd college which was affiliated to respondent 4th university.
The petitioner duly submitted her result Annexure- D which showed her successful completion of the BBA course. Due to the unavoidable Covid 19 pandemic, the petitioner did not receive the original mark sheet and other documents. Also, there was a delay on the part of the University to conduct and later publish the result. Hence, the petitioner pleaded before the court to let her write her first-semester examination.
The court opined that “the interest of justice could be met if the petitioner is allowed to write the examination and thereafter write the original marks card, Degree Certificate, and Transfer certificate as and when she receives the same.”
Further, the writ petition was disposed of by this court stating that she may be allowed to write the examination but the result will be upheld unless she furnishes the original marks card, transfer certificate, and degree certificate.
