Maharashtra Minister Seeks Cancellation of NEET Exam Results Alleging Injustice to Students

Mumbai: Maharashtra Medical Education Minister Hasan Mushrif has sought immediate cancellation of the last month’s NEET exam, alleging that its results have caused injustice to the students from the state. The results of the exam were declared on June 4.

Several aspirants of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET-UG), conducted on May 5 have earlier alleged that inflation of marks has led to a record 67 candidates getting full marks, including six from the same exam centre in Haryana. The National Testing Agency (NTA), however, denied any irregularities.

Maharashtra Medical Education Minister Hasan Mushrif on Friday said, “The NEET exams were probably conducted after taking money. The results are such that no student of Maharashtra will get admission for the MBBS course in government or private college in the state.” He said parents of many students have approached him seeking to address the issue.

“This (the results) has caused injustice to Maharashtra and it must be immediately cancelled. We are going to tell NMC (National Medical Council) about it,” he said.

Mushrif added that the Maharshtra government was even contemplating approaching the court over the issue.

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday called for resolution of students’ “legitimate complaints” through an investigation.  She alleged, “First the NEET exam paper was leaked and now the students allege that there has been a scam in its results as well. Serious questions are being raised on 6 students of the same centre getting 720 out of 720 marks and many kinds of irregularities are coming to the fore.”
