NEET 2024: SC Refuses To Stay Counselling but Seeks Response from NTA on Paper Leak Allegation
Debayan Roy (Bar  and  Bench) 11 June 2024
The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to stay the counselling for admissions of students to the medical colleges over alleged paper leak and irregularities in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) undergraduate (UG) examination 2024. 
 
A vacation bench of justice Vikram Nath and justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah issued notice on one of the petitions seeking cancellation of the examination held in May and an investigation into the paper leak. 
 
The Court listed the matter for consideration on 8th July and sought a response from the national testing agency (NTA).
 
"We will not stop the counselling. If you argue further, we will dismiss this," the Court remarked. 
 
The Court was hearing a batch of petitions seeking cancellation of the NEET-UG 2024 over alleged paper leak and other irregularities this year. 
 
Similar petitions are pending in different High Courts including Delhi and Calcutta High Court. 
 
One of the petitions before the Supreme Court has specifically referred to the allegations that the paper was leaked in Patna and wrong question papers were given to candidates in Rajasthan.
 
Media reports also state that an extraordinarily large number of candidates got a perfect score as per the results published on 04th June. 
 
The candidates have alleged irregularities in award of compensatory marks to student for loss of time.
 
On 17 May 2024, a three-judge bench of chief justice of India DY Chandrachud, justice JB Pardiwala and justice Manoj Misra had declined to stay the publication of the results of NEET-UG 2024. 
 
However, it had issued notice on the plea.
