Furthermore, the rules also allow the NTA to either not declare the result or even cancel it after declaration. However, in the present scenario, the number of students who benefitted from the alleged hacking of the exam centre has not been revealed. If caught, the candidate will also be legally prosecuted.
As per the rules by the NTA, the candidate would be debarred for three years from appearing for the exams and shall also be liable for criminal action and /or any other action as deemed fit.
As the probe is still going on in the JEE scam, a total of seven arrests have already been made including two lab technicians, one assistant professor, and a peon, all working at a Private College of Engineering in Sonipat, Haryana. However, no name of candidates has been revealed so far.
On the other hand, the CBI in its investigation has found that exam consoles and computers at the Sonepat centre were hacked and remotely controlled from places like Jamshedpur in Jharkhand. In the present case, many experts and students have been demanding a fair trial.
According to the latest developments, the JEE Main results will be declared on September 12 and the JEE Advanced application cum registration process will begin from September 13.
