NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has dismissed as withdrawn a PIL seeking to restrain the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) from conducting engineering entrance examinations on the basis of JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced), 2014.

"The petition is dismissed as withdrawn," a division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw said after the counsel for the petitioner sought permission to withdraw the case.

The court granted the petitioner permission to withdraw the plea with the liberty to file the petition before appropriate forum under law.

"How are you aggrieved by the whole matter? student has come forward and filed any petition in this regard," the court said while dismissing the petition.

The PIL filed by Pushpanjali Das had sought a direction to the CBSE and 16 IITs to "re-conduct JEE (Main), 2014 within a week's time and not on multiple days." 

It had also sought a direction that the CBSE and the IITs be not allowed to go ahead with the JEE as different sets of question papers for the exams, which would be held on different dates, will not provide equal opportunities to all students.
