New Delhi – A hearing was held in the Supreme Court on 13th June regarding the malpractices in the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET). 1,563 examinees who got grace marks will be re-examined on 23rd June. The Union Government told the Supreme Court that, the result of that examination would be declared before 30th June, so that it would not affect the counselling starting from July and the counselling of all the children could be done together from the pre-arranged date of 6th July. The Supreme Court has accepted the proposal of the Government.

Many States have filed petitions in different High Courts regarding the complaints of irregularities in the ‘NEET-UG’ examinations held this year. After today’s decision of the Supreme Court, those complaints would not be heard in the High Courts any more. The Divisional Bench of Justice Vikramanath and Justice A Amanullah sought a reply from the Centre and the exam convening agency, the ‘National Testing Agency’ (NTA) within 4 weeks. The next hearing is scheduled to be on 8th July.
