NEET: SC Says It Expects Timely Action from NTA on Paper Leak Allegations
Debayan Roy (Bar  and  Bench) 18 June 2024
Amid widespread allegations of paper leak in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) undergraduate exam 2024, the Supreme Court Tuesday said that it was expecting a timely action from the National Testing Agency (NTA).
 
The vacation bench of Justice Vikram Nath and Justice SVN Bhatti made the remark while hearing a petition seeking cancellation of the NEET exam held in May this year. 
 
"We expect timely action from you (NTA). Let us hear the petitions on July 8," it said.
 
Besides the alleged paper leak, the 2024 exam has been marred by controversies with students also questioning the procedure followed in award of marks.
 
On June 13, during the hearing one of the petitions, the Centre told the top court that candidates who got less than the allotted time to write the exam for medical college admissions will have the option to re-take the exam or forgo grace marks awarded earlier for suffering a loss of time. 
 
Pertinently, media reports also state that an extraordinarily large number of candidates got a perfect score as per the results published on June 4.
 
During the hearing of the petition today, the Centre said no opinion should be formed on the allegations till a proper response is filed in the matter.
 
However, the counsel representing the petitioners said that hard work of the students cannot be forgotten. 
 
"Just imagine a doctor treating who has passed like this ... It needs to be checked how many mobiles were used etc.," the Court was told.
