SC to hear states’ plea to hold own medical entrance exams

5/3/2016

The Supreme Court will hear on Tuesday petitions filed by states and some private medical colleges seeking permission to conduct their own entrance examinations for admissions in MBBS and BDS courses.
 
A constitution bench headed by Justice AR Dave will take up the petition at 2 pm.
 
Many states and private medical colleges are aggrieved by the SC’s April 28 verdict, declaring that admission to undergraduate medical courses will be only through National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) to be conducted by the Central Board of School Education (CBSE).
 
NEET is a single entrance test conducted all over India for admission to MBBS courses in government-run medical colleges, private colleges, deemed universities and minority institutions.
 
Now all government colleges, deemed universities and private medical colleges will admit students on the basis of NEET rankings. The first test was conducted on May 1 and the second is fixed for July 24.
 
Chief Justice TS Thakur’s bench had on Monday ordered after a battery of senior lawyers including KK Venugopal and Gopal Subramaniam mentioned the fresh applications for hearing.
 
Senior advocate Gopal Subramaniam, appearing for Jammu and Kashmir said that the state-held test should be allowed as per schedule despite the top court’s direction to hold common entrance test, notified by Medical Council of India’s (MCI), in two phases.
 
Venugopal, who represented some private medical colleges of Karnataka, made similar pleas that the pre-scheduled entrance test may be permitted to go on.
