Notably, in January, the Allahabad High court dismissed hundreds of petitions by candidates of Uttar Pradesh Teachers Eligibility Test-2017 (UPTET) to evaluate their answer sheets. The petitioners alleged that owing to errors in the OMR (Optical Mark Reader) sheets due to wrongly filled registration number, roll number, booklet series and language preference, their answer sheets were not evaluated.

The court, however, dismissed the petitions, stating that there were clear instructions in the examination booklet asking candidates to correctly fill up the OMR sheets. Justice M C Tripathi also observed that in the garb of minor discrepancies for rectifying such “human error” in the OMR sheets, the court cannot give any liberty to respondent authorities to intervene in the matter at this stage, which would have very serious consequences on the “fairness” of the entire selection process.
