The NTA has said that the paper has not been leaked in all the states. The entire exam should not be canceled. It is not widespread. The dignity of the exam has not been affected. The CBI and the Central Government will also file an affidavit in this matter at 7 pm. Along with this, the NTA will also file an additional affidavit.

In its affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, the National Testing Agency has said, there has been no systematic failure. No issue of OMR sheet has come up in Godhra. During the hearing on the previous day, the Supreme Court had told the government and NTA that we want to know the number of beneficiaries of the paper leak. Also tell what action has been taken against them.

It is clear that the paper has been leaked

The country's Supreme Court had also said during the hearing that it is clear that the paper has been leaked. The government should tell how it will identify the beneficiaries of the paper leak. On the questions of the court, the SG had said that we have taken every possible step. Investigation is going on. FIRs have been registered in 6 states.

The government had said this in the Supreme Court

Recently, the central government had also filed an affidavit in this matter. The government had told the Supreme Court that until it is proved that the paper has been leaked across India, it does not want to cancel the examination because the results have been declared. In such a situation, cancelling the examination would be a fraud with lakhs of promising candidates.

The central government had said that the central agency is moving forward on the basis of the lead found in the investigation. Who is behind the paper leak, it will be exposed soon. Every aspect is being looked into. In order to deal strictly with the culprits in such cases in future, the government has brought the Public Examination Act.
