Delhi HC equates cheating in examination with plague.

May 28, 2020: The Delhi High Court equated cheating in examination with plague while passing an order on a petition. A B.A. (Hons.) economics female student from Daulat Ram College had filed the petition challenging the decision of the Delhi University (DU).



The varsity had cancelled the student’s exam for the entire semester after she was found indulged in cheating. The student sought quashing of the order and direction to the University to declare her result. Upholding the decision of the DU on Tuesday, a single judge Bench presided by Justice Pratibha M. Singh of Delhi High Court pronounced the judgment through video conferencing.

The court observed: “Copying and cheating in examinations are like the Plague. It is a pandemic that can ruin society and the educational system of any country. If the same is left unchecked or if leniency is shown, the same can have a deleterious effect. For any country’s progress, the integrity of the educational system has to be infallible.”



The student appearing in person submitted before the Court that she was late on the examination date due to traffic and the notes prepared for the examination stayed in her pouch mistakenly.

She further told the court that when she found out that the placards are in her pouch, she voluntarily called the invigilator and gave the same to the invigilator, despite her having voluntarily done so, the invigilator accused her of cheating.

Advocate Mahender Rupal, who appeared for the University, brought the attention of the court towards an expert report submitted by an independent expert from Sri Aurobindo College, who compared the answer sheets along with the notes that were seized.

The advocate informed the court that the said report has concluded that the seized notes were used by the candidate in answering the paper.
