The Bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna dismissed the petition as petitioners could not show any new instance of COVID-19 case in any of the exam centres.

The Bench stated that the Rajasthan High Court order under challenge was passed on May 29 and since then there has been no new COVID19 case in exam halls for Rajasthan State board exams.It also stated that the state government will take necessary precautions as per the national guidelines and regulations.

The court also refused to interfere in the matter in light of the recent judgment by Justice L Nageshwara Rao in Rajshree versus State of Karnataka where the court held that there would be minimum interference by Supreme Court in academic matters.
