The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a plea seeking direction to the Central Board of Secondary Education and Delhi government to waive exam fees for students of classes 10, 12 in the current academic year due to the financial crunch faced by parents owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. A bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and MR Shah dismissed the petition filed by NGO ‘Social Jurist’ against the September 28 order of the Delhi High Court.
