DG NTA Vineet Joshi however rejected claims that the delay in JEE Main result declaration is due to the ongoing probe in alleged cheating scam.
Lakhs of students across the country are waiting eagerly for the declaration of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main fourth session result JEE Main cut-offs but the National Testing Agency (NTA) is yet to make any final announcement on JEE Main 2021 Session 4 result date. It is to be noted that the NTA was scheduled to declare JEE Main 2021 Session 4 results this week only but the announcement is getting delayed.
Earlier, a notification was released by IIT Kharagpur announcing that the institute would commence the JEE Advanced 2021 registration on September 11. IIT Kharagpur, however, postponed the registration process last weekend and announced that the registration will start from September 13. The decision by IIT Kharagpur led to speculations that the NTA will declare the JEE Main 2021 result soon. But the NTA preferred not to make any announcement on JEE Mains result 2021 date and time. Some reports claim that the ongoing delay was due to the alleged JEE Scam.
DG NTA Vineet Joshi however rejected claims that the delay in JEE Main result declaration is due to the ongoing probe in the alleged cheating scam. “The result has been delayed as staff preparing it fell sick. The result will be announced this week. Students are advised to check the official website only for updates on results,” Joshi told a news channel.
Referring to the confusion over the release of JEE Main final answer key, DG NTA said, “The JEE Main answer key link on the NTA official website is not the final answer key. The final answer key will be released before JEE Main result.” Once JEE Main result is released, candidates will be able to check the result on the official website – jeemain.nta.nic.in.
