Each seat costs ₹ 20 lakh, of which 5 lakh is given to the person who impersonates the student and solves the NEET (the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) question paper, said sources in the agency. The rest is shared by the middlemen and others, sources said.

On Monday, the agency made the arrests from Delhi – six of the eight solve NEET question papers, sources said. The mastermind is one Sushil Ranjan from Safdarjung, who deputed “solvers” and accepted payments.

The racket is active also across Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Haryana, officials said.

The NEET Exam
The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Undergraduate) or NEET is a uniform examination for the students who wish to pursue undergraduate medical (MBBS), dental (BDS) and AYUSH (BAMS, BUMS, BHMS and similar medical courses). The exam has often turned into a subject of controversy, most often for being too difficult and competitive and for the toll the preparation and associated stress takes on students. This year it is also the subject of a raging controversy because of complaints by aspirants that they were asked to take off their innerwear and turbans in different cases to write the exam.
