The Supreme Court on Thursday, July 14, 2016 rejected a plea to put a stay on the NEET ordinance, which gives states the option to conduct their own entrance test for the academic year 2016-17.

Dr. Anand Rai, known for exposing the vaypam scam had filed a petition in the apex court on May 26, 2016 against the Centre’s ordinance on NEET and pleaded for immediate stay on the special order. Read the full story here. However, the court has rejected his plea stating that interference at this point will create more chaos as the interest of lakhs of students is involved in this case.

 

Further, the Supreme Court also critisised the government for sidelining its order on NEET and bringing the ordinance for this year. “What you (centre) have done is not in a good taste. It shouldn’t have been done after the Supreme Court’s verdict. Why did you do this? This is not proper,” Justice Anil R Dave was quoted by ANI as saying during the hearing.

With the Supreme Court’s refusal to stay the Centre’s ordinance and allow for the implementation of NEET from this year, NEET 2016 Phase 2 will be held on July 24, as per schedule.
