The Delhi High Court is slated to hear a plea seeking postponement of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) undergraduate examination for the year 2022.

NEET is scheduled to be held on July 17.

The plea filed by a group of students has said that the examination schedule coincides with other national level exams and there is a gap of only one or two days between NEET UG, Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and Common University Entrance Test (CUET).

"Respondents scheduled National Level examinations CUET, NEET- UG and JEE in the month of July 2022 having a time gap of 1 or 2 days, wherein the syllabus of all three examinations is completely different," the plea has said.

The action of the respondents in scheduling three major National level examinations without appropriate gap is unreasonable, arbitrary and in contravention of Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution, the petitioners have contended.

The petitioners have also cited 'devastating' floods in several parts of the country.

The petition will be heard by Justice Sanjeev Narula.
