SC Seeks NTA Response on Plea for Fresh NEET-UG Amid Paper Leak, Malpractice Allegations

The Supreme Court on Tuesday requested a response from the National Testing Agency (NTA) regarding a plea for the fresh conduct of the NEET-UG 2024 medical entrance exam due to allegations of question paper leaks and other malpractices.

A vacation bench comprising Justice Vikram Nath and Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah has, however, refused to halt the counselling process for successful candidates seeking admission to MBBS, BDS, and other courses. NEET-UG 2024 was held on May 5, and its results were declared on June 4, ahead of the expected June 14 release date.

NEET-UG is conducted by the NTA for admissions to MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, and other related courses in government and private institutions across India. The plea, filed by Shivangi Mishra and others, has been tagged with a pending case, with the Supreme Court asking the NTA to file its response in the interim.

The petitioners allege that NEET-UG 2024 was compromised due to multiple instances of paper leaks, which violated Article 14 (right to equality) of the Constitution by giving undue advantage to some candidates over others who attempted the examination fairly.
