NEET UG 2024 hearing: Supreme Court hearing on ‘NEET paper leak’ petitions postponed till July 18

On Thursday, a bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud heard several petitions regarding the controversial medical entrance exam NEET-UG 2024. The Supreme Court has adjourned the NEET case to July 18. The matter is adjourned as the CJI-led court notes that some of the parties have not received affidavits from the Center and the NTA, and they have to think of replies before arguments.

These include petitions alleging irregularities and malpractice during the May 5 test and requesting a new investigation. At an earlier hearing on July 8, the Supreme Court found that the integrity of NEET-UG 2024 had been compromised.

In a further affidavit filed on Wednesday, the Center stated that, in compliance with the Supreme Court’s directive, the Education Ministry had asked IIT Madras to conduct comprehensive data analysis on the results of NEET-UG 2024 candidates. Supreme Court hearing on ‘paper leak’ petitions has been adjourned until July 18.
