Amidst the NEET 2016 row, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court against the NEET ordinance despite President Pranab Mukherjee signing it to keep state medical entrance exams out of the ambit, for this academic year.

Health activist Dr. Anand Rai, known for exposing the Vyapam scam-an admission and recruitment scandal in Madhya Pradesh, filed a petition in the Supreme Court on May 26, 2016 against the centre’s decision on NEET and pleaded for immediate stay on the special order.


The petitioner was quoted as saying to Times of India, “The ordinance is in complete contradiction with the Supreme Court’s order to implement NEET, a single test for admissions to MBBS/BDS courses in all medical colleges across the country.”


He further said, “In light of the submissions made before the SC and now a complete U-turn from that stand by the Centre, the present ordinance shows malafide and ill-intent towards the process of admission of students who shall suffer the most because of this see-saw of rule-making by the government.”


A date of hearing in the case is yet to be decided.


In the clamour of rules on NEET, students have left wanting more clarity on the exam and the admission process to be followed.  Aeshwarya, a medical aspirant from Amrawati who appeared for NEET Phase1 and has plans of taking NEET phase 2, said, “Nothing is certain about the common medical entrance exam. It’s going to affect our career as we are already in a stress and the government is yet to declare the status of the exam which is delaying the admission process.”
