After several engineering students in Hyderabad raised their voices against allegedly 'unfair' evaluation of answer sheets by the JNTU, the university has now formed a committee to look into the issue.

A release issued by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) quoted by Times of India says, “The university is concerned about the students not getting through the examination at the same time, is also concerned about the quality of engineering students passing out. A committee is constituted to suggest measures to bring more transparency in the evaluation system.”

On Monday, students of Joginpally BR Engineering College conducted protests on campus shouting slogans of ‘we want justice’. They demanded that the university make changes in the evaluation process and in its existing norms.

A day earlier, students took to social media complaining about the high re-evaluation fee and also alleged that the administration was failing them on purpose to make money through the re-evaluation process.

An online petition on under the name ‘Anonymous JNTUH Victim’ has already garnered more than 10,500 supporters on this matter.

The petitioner states, “Out of the five 10 mark questions, I attempted, as far as I remember, AT LEAST 60 out of the 75 marks in the paper. And by attempt I mean, I wrote them quite well which deserve AT LEAST half of those marks (30). And the pass mark is 26 which should've been a cakewalk. But no!

I got 16. Yes, SIXTEEN. Now, does that make you understand how terrible JNTU is actually?”

Soon the issue came to the notice of state minister K T Rama Rao, who said that he brought the issue to the notice of the state's education minister.

Some students have submitted a representation to the JNTU vice-chancellor.

They have demanded to know how they can be failed in a subject despite answering all the questions.
