UGC NET Exam cancelled: integrity compromised! 

NET Cancellation: Students are enraged!

On 19th June 2024, the Ministry of education declared that the UGC NET Exam that was conducted on 18th June 2024 shall be cancelled. It clarified that speculations are there regarding the integrity of the exam which could have been  compromised. Education minister Dharmendra Pradhan ensured that there were some security breaches in some regions. Those who are involved in this case will be punished. This matter has been reported to the CBI (central bureau of investigation) and there are allegations of paper leaks in these cases. 

This is after the alleged NEET paper leak scam that this big decision has been taken. This has a lot of ramifications involved in the case. A high-level committee has been established to probe into the matter. The Minister admitted that the investigation revealed that the question paper was leaked ‘in the darknet’ and added that the question paper that was circulated on the social media platform, Telegram, matched with the original question paper.


 A total of 9,08,580 students appeared on Tuesday (June 18) Which was held for Junior research fellowship, appointment as Assistant professor and admission to Ph.D. 

On 19th June 2024, the University Grants Commission (UGC) received certain inputs from the National Cyber Crime Threat Analytics Unit of the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) under the Ministry of Home Affairs on the Examination. These inputs prima facie indicate that the integrity of the aforesaid examination may have been compromised 

Thus, it is a very unfortunate situation in the case where the future of a lakh students is at stake. It is high time that the stakeholders and authorities take viable actions to prevent such paper leaks scam to have a level playing field in the examination. Compromising the sanctity of the examination is something of a serious issue that requires urgent limelight. Students are demanding strict actions regarding the same.
