The Supreme Court (SC) reserved its judgement till May 9 on a report submitted by Medical Council of India (MCI) pertaining to the on-going issue of implementation of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) by several states. According to a media report, the MCI has presented a summary of challenges that the state governments are facing in implementing NEET 2016 from the current academic year. MCI has submitted the report to the apex court on May 6, 2016.
As per the media report, advocate Vikas Singh presented the summary on execution of NEET 2016 to a bench comprising of three judges, headed by Justice AR Dave. In the report, MCI has requested the court to allow state governments to conduct their own entrance exams to fill their respective state quota MBBS and BDS seats. MCI has also asserted that all private colleges should accept NEET 2016 score to fill their seats in medical and dental colleges.
Complying with the earlier order of the Supreme Court on the implementation of NEET 2016, MCI in its report said that NEET 2016 phase 2 exam (scheduled for July 24) can be taken only by those candidates who did not apply for AIPMT 2016, which was conducted on May 1.
The court also asked to advertise information in newspapers regarding clarification of NEET 2016 as it was creating confusion among students and parents.
