Centre says NEET results are ready but unable to declare!!
The central government has moved to the Supreme Court of India challenging a Bombay High Court order to hold the exam again for two candidates. The centre said it is unable to declare NEET results, even though it is ready. Delay in the declaration of results will impact the admission process for undergraduate medical courses like MBBS, BDS, BAMS, BSMS, BUMS and BHMS, it said.
The Bombay HC had last week directed the National Testing Agency (NTA) to conduct the NEET exam afresh for two students as they had been handed question papers and answer sheets with incorrect serial numbers.
In NEET, candidates are given question papers and answer sheets with the same codes and same seven-digit serial numbers. But due to a mix-up by invigilators, some students including the petitioners received question papers and answer booklets bearing different codes and serial numbers, the Bombay HC was told.
The Bombay HC bench directed the NTA to hold a "fresh examination for the two petitioners for the academic year 2021-22," and to declare their results within two weeks.
