Supreme Court today ruled that NEET 2016 Phase 2 exam scheduled to be conducted on July 24 can be taken by all candidates irrespective of their appearance in AIPMT/NEET Phase 1 held on May 1. However, NEET phase 1 examinees who appear for NEET Phase 2  will lose the NEET Phase 1 Score. The apex court also cancelled state level medical entrance exams, observing that there was no infirmity in the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) regulation on the ground that it affects rights of states or the private institutions observing that  observed. 

 

The three-judge SC bench headed by Justice AR Dave ordered the implementation of NEET 2016 after hearing pleas from all affected parties on May 9, 2016.

 

“States can't conduct their own exams since Centre's regulation on NEET overrides states' law on separate exams," the SC bench said. Further, the court also observed that “Common all India test can't be held bad only because it affects the rights of states & private colleges and NEET doesn't affect rights of minority nor does it impact provisions for reservation.”

 

With this SC ruling all state level undergraduate medical entrance exams including MH CET, KEAM, KCET, BCECE, WBJEE etc. stand cancelled.

 

In the judgement, the SC bench said that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) can be taken up by all candidates irrespective of their appearance in NEET 2016 Phase1/AIPMT 2016.  

 

The Supreme Court has passed this judgement after hearing a report by the Medical Council of India (MCI) regarding challenges that the state governments are facing in implementing NEET 2016 from the current academic year. MCI had submitted the report to the apex court on May 6, 2016.

While pronouncing the decision regarding NEET 2016, SC declined the request made by MCI that only those candidates can take NEET 2016 phase 2 exam on July 24 who did not apply for AIPMT 2016.

 

The court also asked to advertise information in newspapers regarding clarification on NEET 2016 as it was creating confusion among students and parents.

 

Earlier, on Friday, May 6, the SC bench had cancelled medical entrance exams for private medical colleges. Following the order, many exams including COMEDK, BVP CET, KIMS UG Medical, Manipal Medical, SAAT and CMC Ludhiana scheduled to be conducted in the month of May were cancelled.

how do we apply for the colleges out of our home state after the neet result?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 25th Feb, 2020

Private Medical Colleges do not participate in All India Counselling and the seats are filled through State Counselling alone. And for appearing for State Counselling you need to hold the domicile of that particular State. Or else the only other option is through Management Quota. Under All India Quota, All the 15% of All India Quota Seats except for Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, 100% Seats at Deemed and Central Universities, IP Quota seats in ESIC Colleges, Seats at AFMC are filled by DGHS. The 85% State Quota and Private Colleges are filled by the respective State Authorities. And there are 3 Categories in Private Medical Colleges. Category A is the Government Quota Seats. And only candidates of the home State are eligible to apply for these seats. B Category seats are also called Management Quota Seats and they are filled through State Counselling and the remaining seats are filled through direct Admissions by contacting the College directly. Here the fees is usually nothing less than 40 lakhs. The last Category is NRI seats Category and you cannot apply for that.
