NTA issues alert on fabricated claims against NEET 2020 results, warns of action
New Delhi: Taking a stringent view of fabricated cases claiming incorrect NEET 2020 results, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has warned strict action against the unscrupulous elements who found to be engaged in the manipulated matters pursued against it.
Issuing an alert for the concerned, the NTA has recently released an alert informing about the said effect. It says that Candidates and their parents started approaching NTA through Email and on media/social media on the following issues:

➢ Variation in Score Card declared on 16.10.2020 and available now.
In its stance, the NTA has clarified that it has declared the result after thorough scrutiny and assured all aspirants that the result declared by NTA is correct.
However, it has been revealed on some news channels in social media that shockingly some unscrupulous elements are claiming that the results declared by NTA are incorrect.
Giving an instance on the issue, the NTA referred: For example, Master XYZ (Name withheld), 123456789 (Roll No withheld) has claimed that he has 650 marks whereas he has obtained only 329 marks. This is even being broadcast at local news channels in some cities. The news is totally fake, fabricated and one-sided only. The news channel should have confirmed from NTA before broadcasting this fake news. In the instant case, a complaint is being filed by the NTA with the cybersecurity cell under the IT Act at Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
In this context, it is clarified that all genuine grievances will be entertained by the NTA. However, manipulated and fabricated cases will be viewed seriously and NTA will be forced to take legal action as per laws of the land against such candidates including cancellation of their candidature or other unscrupulous agents representing such candidates.
Candidates in their own interest, are once again advised not to fall prey to any unscrupulous person/agent/spokesperson promising them any favourable changes in their OMRs/results, else legal and punitive action, will be initiated against any/all such persons involved in spreading fake news and maligning the image and prestige of the National Testing Agency.
