Bhatti adjourned to next week.The High Court received a similar writ petition, which NTA's lawyer noted at the outset. For the petitioner, Advocate Ravi Kumar argued that the High Court had refused to consider this appeal since the Supreme Court is occupied with NEET matters. He stated that the instant plea shows "Completely different facts and grounds alleging that the NTA officers are involved in the manipulation of the OMR" and that the petitioner will not appeal to the High Court. Visiting Hon'ble Court since 2020....In other words, the respondents don't have the original OMRs. Show this Hon'ble Court the OMR.” The court ordered the respondent's counsel to withdraw the petition pending before the High Court, citing the petitioner's previous motion for maintainability. Petitioner's attorney requested time to file an affidavit explaining the objection. Prayerfully, list next week.To summarize, many challenges were filed with the Supreme Court challenging the NTA's May 5 NEET-UG Exam 2024.

In addition, the Court verbally said that admissions will depend on the petitions' eventual conclusion and that counseling will be invalidated if the tests are set aside.
