The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a plea which alleged tampering/ fabrication of OMR sheets by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) undergraduate examinations for the year 2021 [Prabhnoor Singh and Ors v National Testing Agency]..The Court noted that the six petitioners were shown their OMR sheets which had been uploaded and five of them confirmed that those were their original OMR sheets. The Court further said that OMR sheets on record were the ones which bore the original handwriting of the petitioner-candidates and had the signatures of both invigilators and the candidates.Hence, it cannot be said that the NTA has engaged in fabrication or tampering of any kind, the Bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna ruled."It cannot be prima facie be suggested that there were any acts of tampering or manipulation in the back office of National Testing Agency. The examination has been attempted by 15.44 lakh candidates out of which six have come to this court. Five have verified their OMR sheet along with their parents. Petition dismissed," the Court ordered. .It was further observed that there is only one answer sheet per candidate and the same is also available on the server. Copies of the OMR sheets were also sent to the email IDs of the six petitioners and a blind copy was sent to the NTA."Why would the NTA want to doctor your results? They are saying they will give you the original," the Bench remarked while dismissing the plea..Senior Advocate Manoj Swarup appeared for the petitioners, while advocate Rupesh Kumar represented the NTA.
