A public interest petition has been filed in the High Court seeking a direction to the Board of Intermediate Education for cancellation of Intermediate examination centres allotted to the students of colleges run by Narayana Educational Society at the colleges run by Sri Chaitanya Educational Institution and vice versa and to re-allot those students to other institutions for the 2012-13 annual examinations of the board.
Petitioner N Krishna Kumar Goud, secretary of Surya Educational Society, submitted that both Narayana and Sri Chaitanya, which were separate institutions earlier, amalgamated recently into one and brought under common management by Sri Sarvani Educational Society. But it was not communicated to the government or Intermediate Board. The two institutions were using their influence to have their students allotted examination centres at each other’s colleges. In connivance with the staff and unchecked malpractices, students of these two institutions have been scoring high percentage of marks, thus putting meritorious students of other educational institutions at a disadvantage.
The petitioner further submitted that both Narayana and Sri Chaitanya started a common IIT Academy, “China Academy” under the management of Sri Sarvani Educational Society and requested the court to declare as illegal and arbitrary the allotment of Narayana colleges as examination centres for Sri Chaitanya students and vice versa.
