In the hearing held on Thursday 14th of July, in the Delhi High Court (HC), declined to postpone the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), saying that the petition lacked merit. The petition sought to postpone the date of the exam as other exams like Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) and Common University Entrance Test (CUET) are also within a span of a couple of days of each other.
On Friday, 15 July 2022, the Delhi HC said that it was too late to postpone the exam and refused to entertain further pleas regarding the subject. Justice Sanjeev Narula, who heard the plea, also said that in future, such pleas may even evoke penalties. “I was quite inclined to pass an order against the petitioner but only because these are students we are not going. If such petitions are filed then the court will not shy away from imposing costs,” Justice Narula said while dismissing the plea.
