The Maharashtra government has called for the immediate cancellation of last month's NEET exam results, alleging that the outcomes have caused significant injustice to the state's students.

Aspirants who took the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET-UG) on May 5 at 4,750 centers in 571 cities previously alleged that inflated marks have led to an unprecedented 67 candidates earning top ranks, including six from a single exam center in Haryana. Despite the National Testing Agency (NTA) attributing high scores to changes in NCERT textbooks and grace marks, Maharashtra Medical Education Minister Hasan Mushrif on Friday alleged, "The NEET exams were probably conducted after taking money. The results show no student from Maharashtra can get admission to MBBS courses in state colleges."

Mushrif announced plans to inform the National Medical Council (NMC) and suggested that the government might approach the court. NEET-UG is the entrance exam for various medical courses including MBBS, BDS, and others.

Political figures like Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin also criticized the results, citing issues like leaked exam papers and clustering of top scorers at specific centers. They called for a thorough investigation and criticized centralization in the federal system.
