CJI-led Supreme Court bench to hear key NEET pleas today – N.F Times

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will examine a clutch of petitions on Monday demanding the re-conduct of NEET-UG 2024, citing alleged paper leaks and other malpractices — a hearing that comes at a critical juncture with the anxiety of more than 2.3 million candidates who took the exam hanging in the balance.

The sanctity of the all-India medical entrance examination, and the responses from the Union government and the National Testing Agency (NTA) opposing a re-exam, will be put to the test by a three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dhananjaya Y Chandrachud. The other members of the bench are justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra.

The Supreme Court has previously acknowledged the seriousness of the allegations and emphasised the need for maintaining the integrity of the examination process. In an earlier hearing on June 18, the vacation bench of the apex court underscored the importance of thoroughly dealing with even 0.01% negligence on the part of NTA in conducting the NEET-UG 2024.
