The court led by Justice Mushtaq lashed out at ICAR for its “inhuman act of forcing the flood victims from the red alert-Kerala zone to ignore the disaster that occurred to each and every one of them and reach the exam centre” and stayed the declaration of AIEEA 2018 results for three weeks. AIEEA 2018 was organized on August 18 and 19 despite students requests for changing the exam dates.
In the wake of flood and flood relief activities, a large number of aspirants couldn’t attend the exam.
ICAR had notified the reexam of the AIEEA for admission to UG, PG and PhD courses, held on 23rd and 24th June, 2018, due to a stay from madras HC because of technical issues that affected 33 students from appearing the exam.
The petitioners Amal C T and Adarsh C K stated that the exam was scheduled on August 18 & 19 at a centre in Kozhikode. Since Continuous rains, overflowing rivers and a huge landslides took place all over the state from August 15 onwards, the petitioners and several other candidates made a request before the Minister for Agriculture to direct ICAR to postpone the exams. Mean while Kerala Agricultural university had first contacted ICAR requesting the postponement of the exam. When that was denied they approached Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Agricultural Minister VS Sunilkumar which wasn’t helpfull because all their hands was busy helping the affected people. Finally the aspirants approached the High Court.
Now, ICAR notified that Re-Exam Result 2018 is scheduled to be released on Thursday, 30th August 2018 by the ICAR for candidates who had appeared for the AIEEA 2018 Re-examination held on 18th and 19th August.
Dear fellow students, ICAR should learn by now that they work for the students and not the other way around!
Our unity is providing them justice.
Proud of Amal C T and Adarsh C K
We thank everyone for signing the petitions and doing everything that led to this act of justice now.
