NTA Establishes Grievance Committee for 1,600 NEET UG 2024 Candidates

The Ministry of Education (MoE) has announced the creation of a Grievance Redressal Committee, which will consist of a four-member team, to investigate the complaints made by 1,600 disgruntled students who lost time while taking the exam, which was held in May in six centres across India, amidst the ongoing protests and controversy surrounding the NEET UG 2024 results. The group will be made up of academics and medical professionals as well as the former UPSC chairman.

“The Committee has been formed to analyse the issue of the irregularities in marking for 1,600 candidates in six centres across India, who were affected by the loss of time during the exam. The NTA is still examining whether to hold the exam again or not. The Committee will share the findings post which a decision will be taken,” said Subodh Kumar Singh, director general, NTA addressing a press conference in New Delhi on Saturday. The admission process will not be impacted by the committee's decision. Singh clarified that out of the 1,563 candidates who were compensated with grace marks, only 790 candidates passed the exam.

NTA also dismissed the evidence of the alleged paper leak.

Medical aspirants nationwide have expressed outrage alleging irregularities in the NEET UG exam, as they questioned two students scoring  718 and 719 marks, which is not possible as per the NEET marking system, in which the right response earns 4 marks and 1 mark is deducted for every wrong answer. NTA previously clarified that the agency has granted grace marks to the students based on the loss of examination time that was ascertained using the CCTV footage and such candidates were compensated with marks based on their answering efficiency and time loss.
