NEET Supreme Court Order: This year after the completion of the NEET exam, two students moved to Supreme Court stating that they were given mismatched and incorrect booklets in the exam centre even after pointing out the issue to the invigilator. The students requested the conduction of a re-exam for NEET 2021 as this was an error on the part of the invigilators and not the two unfortunate students.
Supreme Court sympathised with them and felt sorry but yet refused to conduct NEET again. According to the judge’s panel, if they allow for re-conduction of the exam, from the following year this might become a regular pattern where every other student will approach the Supreme Court and request for a re-exam.
Supreme Court says NO for Re-exam of NEET 2021
To prevent this, Supreme Court refused to conduct the exam twice and ordered the National testing Agency to release the NEET results for the remaining 16 lakh students who have appeared for the exam.
Previously, the Bombay High Court had ordered the re-examination of NEET for the two students who were given a mismatched and incorrect booklet. The centre then moved to Supreme Court to stay the order of the Bombay High Court. The Supreme Court order was given by Justice LN Rao.
The incident had taken place in Solapur, Maharashtra for two students namely, Vaishnavi Bhopale and Abhishek Kapse. The High Court had ordered that the students must be given a notice before 48 hours along with the timings and the centre of NEET. Later, the National Testing Agency moved to Supreme Court as re-conduction of the exam would mean that the results of the other 16 lakh students had to be postponed due to which the counselling process too would be delayed.
