Patil indicated a screen capture to the SC and said that was the reason he had additionally picked the choice "no" when inquired as to whether he wished to take JEE again one year from now. Jain said he would document a point by point answer.
The bench gave IIT Bombay three days to clarify how Batra had finished the cycle of withdrawal. The SC gave the adolescent chance to record a reply and posted the issue for additional conference after the winter vacation of year get-away, however not without passing break orders in support of himself. The SC stated, "Meanwhile, by between time orders, we direct that Batra should be allowed to join IIT Bombay and seek after the course."
