The Uttarakhand High Court has instructed the CBSE to provide temporary registration numbers to 42 Class 12 students from a private school in Dehradun, enabling them to participate in the practical and board exams for the 2022-23 session. The students were initially denied exam permission due to alleged procedural lapses in their school admission.

Justice Sanjay Kumar Mishra, presiding over the case, issued this directive on Thursday in response to a writ petition submitted by the students. The 42 students from Lucent International School, Prem Nagar, Dehradun, sought CBSE registration and approval to attend the ongoing Class 12 Board Examination.

Following a hearing, the high court ordered CBSE to issue provisional registration numbers and permit the students to take the practical and board exams for Class 12 in the 2022-23 session. This allowance is contingent upon the final outcome of the writ petition. Additionally, the court instructed both CBSE and the school to submit a counter-affidavit within four weeks. Lucent International School admitted these students directly into Class 12 as transfer cases, receiving Transfer Certificates (TCs) and Class 11 marksheets in August 2022 during the admission process, which also involved fees of approximately ₹54,000 each for admission and CBSE registration.
