In a saga rife with controversy, the NEET (UG) 2024 examination has come under intense scrutiny following allegations of irregularities and discrepancies in the assessment process. The unfolding events have prompted a judicial inquiry by the Calcutta High Court, demanding answers from the National Testing Agency (NTA) regarding the integrity and fairness of the examination. Here’s a detailed look at the developments surrounding the NEET (UG) 2024 examination:

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra wasted no time in raising concerns over the purported irregularities in the NEET 2024 results. Through her official channels, she called for a thorough investigation into what she termed “legitimate complaints” regarding anomalies in student scores.

Priyanka Gandhi’s remarks shed light on the distressing aftermath of the NEET results, including reports of heightened suicide rates among students. She urged the authorities to address the situation with transparency and accountability, emphasizing the importance of restoring trust in the examination process.

Despite mounting allegations, the NTA stood firm in its defense, dismissing the claims of irregularities. The agency attributed the unusually high scores to changes in NCERT textbooks and the provision of grace marks to candidates affected by disruptions during the examination.

Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the Calcutta High Court intervened by initiating a judicial inquiry into the matter. Responding to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by advocate Tanmoy Chattopadhyay, the court directed the NTA to provide a detailed affidavit addressing the allegations within a stipulated timeframe.

In its directives, the court demanded clarity from the NTA regarding the adherence to reservation policies mandated by both state and central governments in compiling the merit list. Additionally, the court instructed the NTA to preserve all relevant examination records until further notice.

The PIL filed by advocate Tanmoy Chattopadhyay highlighted what it described as “glaring discrepancies” in the NEET (UG) results. The petition questioned the rationale behind awarding grace marks based on a precedent unrelated to the current case, raising doubts about the validity of the examination process.

With the commencement of the judicial inquiry, the court aims to unravel the truth behind the allegations and ensure accountability in the examination system. It underscores the importance of upholding fairness and transparency to uphold the credibility of the NEET (UG) examination.

As the controversy surrounding the NEET (UG) 2024 examination deepens, the judicial inquiry serves as a beacon of hope for students and stakeholders, seeking clarity and justice in the face of uncertainty.
