Friday’s Kerala High Court ordered the Joint Director of National Testing Agency to allow a candidate to verify their original OMR and calculation sheets in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. According to the petitioner, their OMR sheet had been manipulated. The student claimed that their parents were not named and that the thumb impression on the sheet was not theirs. The petitioner claimed that her OMR was not the same as the one she had tried. The Bombay High Court had ordered the National Testing Agency (NTA) to hold a re-examination of two candidates for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Exam (NEET). OMR sheets and test booklets had been misplaced by invigilators.
Kerala HC Orders
A petition filed by a candidate for the NEET UG 2021 exam was heard by the Court. The petitioner sought a directive from NTA to produce her original OMR answer sheets and to reevaluate her answer sheets based upon the provided answer key. On Thursday, the petitioner appeared in person before Court and admitted that she had seen the OMR sheet. However, she strongly denied the entries in the bubbling section.
This is just one of the many claims against NEET 2021 made earlier in the year. A group of students claimed that they received question papers and answer books with the same code and seven-digit serial numbers. Due to an invigilator mix-up, students including petitioners received question paper and answer booklets with different serial numbers and codes. NTA was asked by the court to hold NEET again.
The exam question paper was discovered on social media less than half an hour before the exam started. In connection with this case, Dineshwari Kumari, an 18-year-old candidate, was arrested by the police along with Ram Singh, the invigilator at the exam center’s administration section. Dineshwari’s uncle and four other people were also taken into custody.
Mumbai Police approached a Chief Metro Magistrate Court in Mumbai on Saturday to declare Param Bir Singh, a senior IPS officer, and two other “proclaimed offenders” in relation to an extortion matter.
Next, the matter will be heard on 29th November. The petitioner was represented by Senior Advocate George Poonthottam, Advocates Nisha George, and Chithra George. Another candidate had reported manipulation of her NEET OMR answer sheets. The matter is currently pending before the Bench. An inquiry has been made into the same.
