SC to hear NEET Petitions: Government opposes re-exam

Today, a three-judge bench led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud will hear petitions regarding the NEET UG 2024 results.

The bench, which includes Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, will address pleas filed by students and coaching institutes.

They seek to reevaluate the NEET UG 2024 results due to alleged irregularities. The Union government, however, opposes the idea of re-conducting the exam.

In its submission to the Supreme Court, the government argues that cancelling the exam would jeopardize the efforts of honest candidates who appeared for the exam on May 5.

The education ministry, in an affidavit filed on Thursday, acknowledged instances of cheating, impersonation, and malpractices during the exam. However, it did not mention a paper leak.

The affidavit states that without proof of a large-scale breach of confidentiality, it is not rational to scrap the entire examination.

The ministry emphasized the importance of protecting the interests of most students who took the exam honestly. Cancelling the exam, it argues, would unfairly penalize these students.

The government’s stance is clear. It believes that the examination system must balance competing rights.

While addressing the concerns of students affected by irregularities, it is also crucial to uphold the integrity of the process for the majority.

The government argues that the NEET UG 2024 exam results should stand, given the lack of evidence for a widespread breach.

The Supreme Court’s decision on this matter will have significant implications. The future of many students hinges on the court’s verdict. As the hearing proceeds, all eyes will be on the three-judge bench to see how they navigate this complex issue.

The NEET UG exam is a critical step for students aspiring to join medical colleges in India.

Any decision to cancel or uphold the results will impact their academic and professional futures. The bench’s ruling will set a precedent for handling such issues in future examinations.
