Supreme Court Dismisses Plea To Cancel NEET-UG 2021 Over Alleged Malpractices; Says “Lakhs Of Students Can’t Be Made To Suffer

The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition seeking cancellation of the NEET-UG2021 exam held on September 12, 2021 and conduct of fresh exams for NEET-UG in the wake of allegations about widespread use of malpractices and paper leak. “Instances of impersonation and paper leakage cannot be to the detriment to the lakhs of students who have appeared for the exam”, the Supreme Court observed while dismissing the petition.

The bench criticized the petitioner for being ‘adventurous’ by filing the writ petition and warned that costs will be imposed. A bench comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai heard the petition Saloni v. National Testing Agency and others. The petitioner alleged that the National Eligibility and Entrance Test-UG 2021 (NEET-2021) has been “reversibly vitiated” by use of unfair means & malpractice through electronic gadgets, devices and facilitation through other illegal and unfair means.
