In a last and final attempt to postpone JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020, scheduled to be held in September, a 17-year old minor boy approached Supreme Court Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, requesting him to postpone the exams keeping in view the dangerous coronavirus situation prevailing across the country besides incessant rains and floods in various States across the country.
The 17-year old minor boy is a JEE Main 2020 aspirant.
Since JEE Main 2020 exam is scheduled to begin from tomorrow (September 1, 2020, Tuesday), the boy requested the Chief Justice of India (CJI) to take up this case on an urgent basis today itself, August 31, 2020, Monday.
It may be recalled that the six States ruled by Opposition parties have filed a review petition in the Supreme Court on August 28, 2020, Friday, seeking review of Supreme Court's earlier orders refusing to postpone JEE Main, NEET to be held in September.
The case is expected to come up for hearing in the Supreme Court today, August 31, 2020, Monday.
Since the boy is a minor, the Supreme Court lawyer Alakh Alok Srivastava, who is waging a legal battle to ensure postponement of JEE Main, NEET exams, helped the minor boy, to submit his letter to Chief Justice of India.
Lakhs of students and parents across the country are anxiously waiting for the verdict of the Supreme Court on the Opposition parties review petition for postponement of exams, likely today, August 31, 2020, Monday.
