Supreme Court to deliver Neet final verdict today
The uncertainty over the validity of National Eligibility- cum- Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to medical courses, for the coming academic year (2013-14), is likely to end with the Supreme Court scheduled to deliver its verdict on Neet on Monday.
The court had earlier postponed its verdict to July 2 after summer vacation. However, the Medical Council of India has urged SC to deliver the verdict at the earliest, since the PG medical admissions scheduled, will be delayed. The cut-off date for PG medical admissions is May 31.
The Supreme Court would deliver the verdict at 2 pm on Monday, said officials. The state government has approached the Supreme Court against Neet last year along with several other states, deemed universities and minority colleges.
The Apex Court gave interim orders in December, last year, allowing states and institutions to conduct their own entrance tests for admissions, but asked them not to release the results, till it delivers its verdict on Neet.
With this, PG medical aspirants in the state appeared for both Neet-PG conducted by the Centre, in November last year and PG Medical CET conducted by NTRUHS in March this year , while UG medical aspirants appeared for both Neet-UG on May 5 and Eamcet on May 10.
The Supreme Court verdict will enable the state government to make admissions to medical courses accordingly following merit secured in either Neet or the state government-conducted entrance tests.
