SC Seeks NTA Response on Plea for Fresh NEET-UG Amid Allegations Of Paper Leak, Malpractice
NTA, which is in charge of conducting NEET UG, is being scrutinised for issues like as granting of grace marks for loss of time and mismanagement of exam

In response to a plea demanding a retest for the  National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Undergraduate 2024 (NEET-UG 2024) owing to suspected paper leaks and irregularities, the Supreme Court today, June 11, issued a notice to the National Testing Agency (NTA) for a response. The plea submitted by ten NEET candidates was examined by the Supreme Court’s vacation bench.

The SC stated, “The sanctity has been affected, so we need answers,” and it has requested an explanation from the NTA over the petition. It has also voiced concern over the claims that the tests’ integrity might have been compromised. The subsequent hearing for this matter is set for July 8.

According to PTI, the vacation bench headed over by Justice Vikram Nath and Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah has refused to defer the counselling of qualified candidates for admission to MBBS, BDS, and other programmes.

This year, the NEET-UG 2024 was held on May 5 for around 24 lakh students and the results were announced on June 4, much ahead of its anticipated release date of June 14. Suspicions were aroused when the NEET results showed that 67 individuals, six of whom came from the same or nearby testing centre, achieved a perfect score of 720 marks.

The NTA, which is in charge of administering the exam, is being investigated for issues like such as granting of grace marks for loss of time, mismanagement and general exam handling. To guarantee fairness and openness, proper investigation and re-examination are being demanded by a number of parents, teachers and students.
