New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to entertain a batch of pleas seeking deferment or cancellation of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) scheduled for 13 September.

A bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan said that authorities will take all necessary steps for conducting the NEET undergraduate exam amid the COVID-19 pandemic for admission in medical courses.

“Sorry, we are not inclined to entertain,” the bench said.

The apex court had on 4 September dismissed petitions, including the one filed by ministers of six opposition-ruled states, seeking review of its 17 August order which had paved the way for holding NEET and JEE exams.
