KOCHI:  Coming down heavily on the state government for filing the appeal in Plus-II cases in an improper manner, a Division Bench of

the Kerala High Court on Friday adjourned to August 26 the hearing on an appeal filed by it against a Single Judge’s order in the Plus-II issue.

The Bench comprising Justice Antony Dominic and Justice Dama Seshadri Naidu also directed the state  government to give copies of the appeal to all the schools who filed petitions before the Single Judge.

The Singe Bench had

directed the state government to sanction Plus-II schools and additional batches as recommended by a six-member committee headed by the Director, Higher Secondary Education (scrutiny committee), ignoring the recommendationsmade by  the Cabinet sub-committee.

The state government filed appeals only against the order in the petition filed by the Muslim Educational Society (MES) . However the Single Judge had considered around 100 petitions in this regard.

 The state government submitted that the government had deviated from the recommendations of the scrutiny committee on account of cogent and convincing reasons.
