Many of the stakeholders even approached the Supreme Court over this issue. The Central Government informed the Supreme Court that the grace marks offered to some students will be withdrawn with an option for retest given to the candidates. They however refuted allegations of a scam. “There is no paper leak, no proof has been found yet. A court-recommended model was adopted for around 1560 students and a panel of academicians has been formed for the same. I want to assure the students and their parents that the Indian government and its instrument NTA are committed to providing justice to them in a way that is transparent and relieving for them. This time 24 lakh students have successfully taken the NEET examination,” Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said in a press conference. The Education Minister also refused to entertain the proposal of different cut-offs for different papers by highlighting that this has always been the norm.
