New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday sought responses from the Centre, the National Testing Agency (NTA), and others on petitions seeking the cancelation of NEET-UG 2024, and a court-monitored probe into the alleged irregularities in the medical entrance exam.

The bench posted these pleas for hearing on July 8.

Petition Filed By 20 Students

The NTA conducts the all-India pre-medical entrance test.
