The Supreme Court has given the green signal to declare the result of Neet-UG. The Supreme Court has given permission to declare 16 lakh results. The Supreme Court has stayed the decision of the Bombay High Court. Actually, the High Court had stayed the NEET result for two students. The Supreme Court said that the examination results for 2 students cannot be withheld. 16 lakh students are eagerly waiting for the result. We have to balance interests.
During the hearing, Justice L Nageswara Rao told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that although we agree that the declaration of results cannot be withheld, the interest of these two students should also be protected, not in limbo. Your inspector has admitted the mistake. In such a situation, we cannot keep lakhs of students waiting for results. We allow you to declare the result. In the case of these two students, you find a way out. The court has issued a notice to the NTA on the issue of both the students and sought their response. It will be heard after Diwali.
The Central Government reached the Supreme Court regarding the result of neet- UG examination. The decision of the Bombay High Court was challenged. The Center has said that the order of the High Court to conduct the re-examination of two students should be stayed. This order of the High Court will set a wrong precedent. Due to the order of the High Court, the result of the entire examination has been stopped. Hence, delay in declaration of results will delay the admission process for undergraduate medical courses like MBBS, BDS, BAMS, BSMS, BUMS and BHMS. Bombay High Court’s decision to prevent such incidents in future.
Will set a wrong precedent for taking undue advantage. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had demanded an early hearing from CJI NV Ramana. He said that this order of the High Court has put a stay on the declaration of NEET result. In fact, the Bombay High Court has ordered separate NEET exam for two students. With this, the result is to be declared only after conducting the examination of these two students. NEET exam was conducted last month on 12 September across the country. Around 16 lakh candidates had participated in the examination.
The Bombay High Court order came on petitions by two students of Solapur district who had complained that due to the negligence of the invigilator, they received mismatched text booklets and answer sheets during the examination.
The petitioners said that the test booklet and the answer booklet given to them were not matching. When the candidates immediately informed the invigilators, they were not listened to and silenced. Following this, the court directed the NTA to conduct the re-examination for the petitioners Vaishnavi Bhopale and Abhishek Kapse and declare their results in two weeks. The High Court has asked the NTA to inform the petitioners about the date of re-examination and examination center 48 hours in advance.
