NEET Paper Leak: Supreme Court Refuses to Stay NEET Counseling, Issues Notice to NTA

NEET Paper Leak Hearing: The Supreme Court on Friday (June 21) refused to stay the NEET-UG 2024 counseling. The court has also issued a notice to the National Testing Agency (NTA), the body conducting the medical entrance exam. The Supreme Court has clubbed the new petitions seeking cancellation of the NEET exam and re-examination with the rest of the pending petitions. The court is scheduled to hear all these petitions filed against NEET on July 8.

However, this is not the first time that the Supreme Court has refused to ban counselling. Earlier during the hearing, when the demand for re-conducting the NEET exam and fresh counselling was made, the court had refused to do so. The central government had also said that the students who have passed should focus on counselling. Counselling for admission in medical courses is going to start from July 6.

Hearing on Petitions Demanding Cancellation of NEET exam

The vacation bench of the Supreme Court was hearing the petitions which demanded investigation, cancellation and re-examination of the NEET exam. After hearing these petitions, the court again refused to stop the counseling. On Thursday, the Supreme Court has already issued a notice regarding the NTA petition to transfer all the petitions related to the NEET UG exam from different High Courts to the Supreme Court.

Students Demanded to Give NEET Exam Again

Justice Vikram Nath, who headed the bench, stayed the proceedings in different High Courts, but said that the counselling process is going to continue. Apart from this, the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Center and NTA on the petition of the students who took the NEET exam at a center in Meghalaya. These students claimed that their 45 minutes were wasted during the exam and they should be included among the 1,563 students who got grace marks.

Students say that these students have also been given a chance to appear in the re-examination to be held on 23 June. However, the court is also going to hear these petitions on 8 July. NTA has already informed the court that the grace marks given to the students have been cancelled. In such a situation, the students who got grace marks should either accept their rank without it or appear in the exam again. The re-examination of these students is on 23 June, while the result will come on 30 June.
