NEET Result 2021 @neet.nta.nic.in: After getting the green signal from the Supreme Court, now the National Testing Agency (NTA) is all set to release the result of the Medical Entrance Test NEET-UG 2021.
This year 2021, the results were delayed as mostly the NEET results are declared by 18 October. Earlier the Bombay High Court directed the NTA to declare the results only after re-examination of two NEET students. The Apex court stayed the orders of the Bombay High Court. It said, that lakhs of students have appeared in the examination and the results cannot be cancelled because of some FIRs. The court said that it would be wrong to withhold the results of lakhs of students for two students, so the results should be released at the earliest.

The Supreme Court has directed the agency to release the results of the remaining 16 lakh students instead of withholding the results for two candidates. The results can be released today on October 28, which the candidates can download by visiting the official website neet.nta.nic.in.
The Bombay High Court order had said that the NEET exam should be conducted afresh for two students Vaishnavi Bhopali and Abhishek Shivaji. Both the candidates had alleged that they were given question papers and answer sheets with wrong serial numbers. According to the order of the court, the result was to be released after the examination of both the candidates. The Supreme Court has now stayed this decision and the result is ready to be released.
How many Students appeared in Exams
The Center had said in the petition that the NEET exam held on September 12 was conducted for more than 16 lakh students.
What were the complaints
The Bombay High Court order came on petitions by two students of Solapur district who complained that due to the negligence of the invigilator, they received mismatched text booklets and answer sheets during the examination. The petitioners contended that the test booklet and the answer booklet given to them were not matching. When the candidates immediately informed the invigilators, they were not listened to and silenced. The court then directed the NTA to conduct the re-examination for the petitioners Vaishnavi Bhopale and Abhishek Kapse and declare their results in two weeks. The High Court had asked the NTA to inform the petitioners about the date of re-examination and examination centre 48 hours in advance.
In response, the Center had also said that there are discrepancies in the statements of the petitioners seeking re-examination and the Bombay High Court's decision would set a wrong precedent for the candidates in future and the candidates would take undue advantage of such an incident.
