The Delhi High Court advised- Allow students of 10th and 12th to change name in
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court advised the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to make a system for students to change their name, surname and other information in their 10th and 12th grade marksheets and certificates. A bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan asked the CBSE to consider the suggestion in view of the large number of petitions filed in this regard. The bench said that such a suit is not right.
The court said, "It may be good for the lawyers but not for the institute." Also, the bench advised the board to give a column or space in the form, in which the students can make changes according to their wish. Have permission. The bench said, "Give a column in the form where people can make changes." This is his name, surname and not yours. Let them make changes as often as they want. After all, all the students are not demanding it.
The court said that the change requested may be included under any corner or certificate, along with the information given at the beginning. During the hearing, the lawyer appearing for CBSE said that the board does not authenticate anyone's identity. He also said that he only records the information given for the first time.
To this, the bench said, "You are not certifying identity. You prepare based on the information received. Therefore, whether it is the first, second or third time, you can make this change based on the information provided. "The court was hearing the petition of the CBSE against the decision given by the single bench in March. The single bench had directed the change of mother's name in her 10th and 12th grade marksheets and certificates on the petition of the student. Now the next hearing on this matter will be held on 20 November.
