The Madhya Pradesh High Court disposed of a PIL seeking a direction to the state government to set up more than three centres in Jabalpur for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).

The PIL has been filed by Sanskardhani Abhibhavak Sangthan, Jabalpur through Advocate Sunanda Kesharwani. The petitioner submitted that the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development (now known as Ministry of Education), Government of India has entrusted the responsibility of conducting JEE (Main) to the National Testing Agency (NTA) from 2019 onwards.

It is further submitted that more than three centres of JEE examination have been set up in Bhopal, Indore, Gwalior and Rewa cities of Madhya Pradesh, whereas in Jabalpur, only one centre has been set up which is more than 20 km from the city centre Teen Patti Chowk, which is inconvenient for students due to non-availability of transport and other facilities.

The petitioner has therefore prayed for setting up more than five centres in the local area Jabalpur for Engineering Entrance Examination JEE.
