Dharmendra Pradhan: Ministry Awaits Supreme Court’s Decision on NEET Paper Leak

New Delhi: In the ongoing NEET paper leak case, the government has submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court, asserting that there is no evidence of widespread malpractice. Meanwhile, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has reassured students that no injustice will befall them. “Since the entire matter is under the supervision of the Supreme Court, we will act based on the court’s decision,” Pradhan stated.

Many students have expressed dissatisfaction with Pradhan’s remarks. They argue that they have worked hard for their studies and achieved good marks, and thus the NEET-UG examination should not be conducted again. Pradhan assured the students that the Ministry of Education has presented its case to the court, and now the court will make the final decision.

On Wednesday, the Central Government filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court concerning the paper leak case. The government stated that data analysis has not indicated any large-scale wrongdoing, and hence, it does not support a re-examination for NEET UG. The counselling for NEET is set to begin in the third week of July. The National Testing Agency (NTA) has also submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the case on Thursday.

The NTA informed the court that no question papers went missing from any trunks in the Patna/Hazaribagh incident. Each question paper has a unique number assigned to a specific candidate, and none of the locks were found broken. The NTA also clarified that out of the 61 toppers being mentioned, only 17 were initially identified.

The Supreme Court will continue its hearing on the case on Thursday afternoon.
