NEET 2021 Updates – Cancellation, Result Date, 2nd Phase Registrations & Answer Key

NEET Cancellation & Re-Exam News

A petition filed by a handful of medical seat aspirants to cancel the 2021 NEET test & called for a re-exam of the test. The plea sought the help of the Supreme Court of India to ask the National Testing Agency (NTA) to cancel/invalidate the 2021 National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) due to the NEET paper getting leaked & multiple reports of malpractices and cheating surfaced. Earlier, after the conduction of NEET on 12th September 2021, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed FIRs citing involvement of coaching centres & paper cracking groups in incidents of leaked paper of NEET 2021.

The Supreme Court dismissed the plea for cancellation & re-exam of NEET 2021 on Monday, 4th October 2021. The Supreme Court bench assigned the case comprised of Justices LN Rao & BR Gavai who stated that cancellation of NEET would cause turmoil and the lakhs of students who have written the exam will have to bear the suffering. The Supreme Court also mentioned in its order that a national-level exam that 16-lakh students have taken cannot be cancelled on the basis of five FIRs. The SC initially had imposed a fine of Rs. 5 lakhs on the petitioning counsel before withdrawing the fine and replacing it with a warning – “Costs will not be imposed this time but we will remember you. Next time there is such a case, we will definitely impose costs on you,” the bench of Supreme Court Justices stated.
