Supreme Court issues notice on OMR sheet manipulation plea, discrepancy in final results

NEET-UG 2021 : Supreme Court Issues Notice On Plea Alleging Rigging Of OMR Sheets, Discrepancy In Final Results

The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice in a written petition favored by 6 NEET-UG candidates alleging that their OMR sheets were tampered with after the publication of the response keys by the National Testing Agency.

The petitioners allege widespread discrepancies in NTA’s scoring process and dispute their grades and ranks achieved in the test conducted by the National Testing Agency on September 12, 2021.

The case was brought to court Judges DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna.

It has been argued that there was a huge discrepancy between the figures calculated by the petitioners based on the answer keys published by the NTA and the final figures set by the NTA on 1 November 2021. One of the submitters claims that his score based on the answer key was 584, but the final result was 164. According to another submitter, his score based on the answer key was 675, but the final result was 52 points. Another submitter’s final score was zero, although his guess was 545 points according to the answer key.

“It appears that there has been massive manipulation in the screening of the OMR sheet shortly after the publication of the answer keys and the consequent uploading of the OMR sheet for self-assessment and before the actual declaration of the result and scorecard on the NTA website, which has led to a blatant discrepancy in the figures obtained by the petitioners”, is in the petition.

Referring to the comparative tabulation of numbers, the petitioners have argued that it is “clearly apparent” that there is a huge margin of error in their scores.

It has further been claimed that something is completely wrong on the part of the NTA and that it should be addressed by opening an investigation against the authority.

The petitioners have referred in their petition to the news for the leak of the questionnaire and criminal conspiracy to sabotage the fair examination process for which several FIRs were registered in various places in India.

The sum and content of the initial research in these FIRs had demonstrated the rampant use of unscrupulous means and unfair practices to manipulate the results in favor of the wealthy and unmerited candidates, the petitioners said.

In light of this background, the petition stated that,

“There are malpractice and corrupt practices occurring at a level that the innocent, deserving and deserving applicants cannot imagine, which has resulted in arbitrariness and rejection of deserving candidates and as such violates their rights under Article 14 of the Constitution of India.”

The case will then be heard on December 13, 2021.

Senior lawyer Manoj Swarup with Rajan Kumar Singh (AOR) and Rakesh kumar Singh Advocate appeared before the applicants

The petition is submitted through Lawyer on Record Ranjan Kumar Singh.

Case : WP(C) 1286/2020
