NEET PG: Supreme Court Issue Notice on Plea Seeking Release of Question Paper, Answer Key.

The vacation bench, comprising Justice Vikram Nath and Justice SVN Bhatti, has agreed to examine the plea and request a response from the National Board of Examinations (NBE), Medical Counselling Committee (MCC), and other relevant parties.

“Issue notice returnable on 8th of July, 2024. In the meantime, respondents may file their counter affidavits,” ordered the Bench.

During the hearing, the legal representatives of the National Testing Agency (NTA) asserted that the NTA should be excluded from the list of litigants, as it is not a necessary party to the lawsuit. NTA's counsel explained that the National Eligibility Entrance Test for Postgraduate is conducted by the National Board of Examination.

In response, Justice Bhatti remarked, “You may put it on record. When we pass an order, we will use our discretion under Supreme Court rules and delete you from the array of parties.”

What Is the Issue?

A petition was filed in the Supreme Court challenging the NBE's rule of not releasing the NEET PG question paper and answer key. The petition criticized the NBE's decision not to release the question paper, answer key, and answer sheet for the 2022 NEET PG exam, and for not providing an option to re-evaluate scores, despite known discrepancies in the scores of candidates. The plea pointed out that no other entrance exam in India lacks such transparency, noting that other national-level exams like NEET UG, JEE Advanced, CMAT, and CLAT allow students to challenge the answer key.
