SC remains firm on NEET 2016 decision and asks CBSE to conduct next phase of exam

SC remains firm on NEET 2016 decision and asks CBSE to conduct next phase of examThe Supreme Court remains firm on its order passed on April 28 regarding implementation of NEET 2016 in two phases, despite objections raised by several states and private medical institutions regarding the national level test. The apex court has now asked examination authority CBSE to go ahead with NEET Phase 2 exam on the scheduled date July 24, 2016.

While hearing pleas of private institutions on May 3, Justice Anil R. Dave opined that as decided earlier, NEET should be conducted as the national level medical entrance exam. He, however, agreed to hear pleas of private players before deciding fate of impending state level medical entrance tests.

During the hearing, the court also asked Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to advertise information in newspapers regarding clarification of NEET 2016 as it was creating confusion among students and parents. The court also asked Centre and CBSE to give wide publicity regarding NEET 2016 Phase 2 exam so that candidates who did not fill AIPMT 2016 application form can apply afresh for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

On May 3, 2016, during hearing plea from State governments and private medical institutions to conduct their own entrance exams, the court did not pass any order. The court said it will pass any judgment only after hearing all parties even as it did not restrain them from holding their own exams. This means that various state and institute-level tests can be conducted but their validity will be subject to the final SC order regarding common undergraduate medical entrance exam.

The court has also asked the Centre, CBSE and the Medical Council of India (MCI) to file their responses to the issues raised by the States and private colleges. It assured all the parties that the decision will be taken only after considering issues raised by all stakeholders regarding the implementation of NEET.

Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, representing CBSE at the time of hearing, said the NEET 2016 Phase 1 was conducted without any glitch and around 6.5 lakh students took the test on May 1.
