Calcutta High Court Demands NTA Affidavit in NEET Controversy; Hearing Scheduled in Two Weeks

The Calcutta High Court has intervened in the ongoing controversy surrounding the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), directing the National Testing Agency (NTA) to submit an affidavit within ten days.

Additionally, the court has scheduled a follow-up hearing for the case in two weeks’ time, indicating a thorough review of the matter.

In its directive, the division bench led by Justice Apoorva Sinha Ray and Justice Kaushak Chanda has sought clarification on the implementation of reservation policies by both central and state governments in the preparation of the NEET merit list. The court has emphasized the importance of maintaining the integrity of examination papers and has expressed concern over allegations that certain students were granted grace marks unfairly. These developments underscore the significance of transparency and fairness in the conduct of crucial national examinations like NEET.
