NEET-UG 2024: SC to hear pleas over irregularities on July 18 | India News – Times of India

TOI News Desk

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has postponed the NEET-UG hearing until next Thursday, July 18, to address the alleged irregularities and malpractices during the May 5 medical entrance examination. The CBI has submitted a probe status report to the court regarding the ongoing investigation into the matter.
Earlier this week, the Supreme Court raised concerns about the integrity of the NEET-UG 2024 exam, suggesting that if the question paper leak has been disseminated through social media platforms, a re-examination must be conducted.The court stressed the importance of holding the authorities accountable and adjourned the matter until July 11, requesting the CBI to provide a status report by Wednesday.
Currently, the apex court is reviewing more than 30 petitions related to the NEET-UG examination, which raise various issues, including allegations of irregularities and malpractices during the May 5 test. Some petitioners are seeking a directive to re-conduct the examination.
In a separate plea, over 50 successful NEET-UG candidates from Gujarat approached the court, requesting it to prevent the Centre and the National Testing Agency (NTA) from invalidating the disputed exam.
The NEET-UG exam has been marred by accusations of malpractice, including alleged paper leaks and questionable marking methods, leading to widespread anger and demonstrations across the country. As a result, certain students were instructed to retake the NEET UG exam, and the NEET-PG exam was postponed.
