The high court was hearing a petition seeking JEE Main 2023 postponement and relaxation in 75% eligibility criteria. 

Regarding the JEE Main eligibility, the bench of acting Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and J Sandeep V Marne said that JEE Main eligibility criteria 2023 will be considered at the time of admission in June. 

The Bombay High Court says, "Any orders passed to postpone may have a cascading effect. If a student does not fare well in JEE January, he can compete in April.
