NTA Delays Release of JEE Main Admit Card 2020 Due To PILs

According to the official notice from NTA, the dates for downloading JEE Main Admit Card 2020 were to be displayed 15 days prior to the exam dates. Meanwhile, JEE Main 2020 Exam Dates were revised to 1st – 6th September 2020.

Considering the gap, admit cards for the delayed April 2020 session were likely to be issued on 15th August 2020. But amid the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple PILs filed in the Supreme Court demanding postponement of JEE Main and NEET (UG) have delayed the announcement of admit cards for JEE Main. The apex court will hear these pleas likely on August 17th 2020.

“Conduct JEE Main Only After Normalcy Is Restored”

The plea demanding postponement was filed by Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava. It mentioned that “Conducting the entrance exams all over India at such perilous times will endanger the lives of millions of students at utmost risk and danger of disease and death.” The plea asked that it would be best to conduct the entrance exams only after the “normalcy is restored” after the COVID-19 pandemic.

As against the plea filed demanding postponement, there was a plea filed in favour of conducting JEE Main and NEET exams as per the schedule, without any further delay. The Supreme Court of India will hear both the pleas.

Even though the plea has been filed, there hasn’t been any statement from NTA regarding what steps might be taken in terms of conducting or delaying the JEE Main 2020. As soon as the SC bench passes its judgement, the conducting body might take quick actions.
