Law Student from State of Maharashtra filed a Petition before Bombay High Court seeking uniformity in the examination and declaration of results on time across the state.

This matter was listed before the Division Bench of Justice Milind Jadhav and Justice Abhay Ahuja with the permission of Vacation Bench.

The Petition was co-filed by first year law student Balusha Bhasal along with social worker and 10 other students raising the issue that different universities are following different patterns, schedules even exams are being conducting differently.

All the Vice- Chancellors of Non-agriculture universities have considered the matter of uniform examination in the meeting where it was decided to conduct offline exams, gap of two days will be given in between two exams.

The minutes of the same meeting were circulated to all universities by State Higher Education Department. The Petitioners claimed that this decision is not followed in all the universities.

Universities are following their own academic calendar and objected in giving two days gap stating that will elongate the exam and make delay in result declaration.

There are many students who want to study in abroad for those students if result got delayed than deadline to perform admission in foreign universities will be missed.

The Petitioners further claimed that descriptive type examination and objective type examination cannot be evaluated at same level as it will be unreasonable and discriminatory.

The Petitioner prayed to give directions so result should not be delayed otherwise deadline of foreign universities will be missed and uniform pattern of examination and academic calendar should be followed across state.
