The apex court has issued a notice to the Centre and Medical Council of India (MCI) and sought a detailed reply from them, reported ANI. The next date of hearing is 10 July, according to PTI.

The group of aspirants have challenged the Delhi High Court's 11 May judgment dismissing the pleas challenging the MCI notification laying down the upper age limit of 25 and 30 years for general and reserved categories respectively to apply for NEET for MBBS and BDS courses.

However, the high court had struck down a clause in the notification which bars students from the open schools or those who have studied privately from appearing in the test.

During the brief hearing on Monday, the counsel appearing for the students told the apex court that the limitation of 25 years was "completely arbitrary".


CBSE declared the NEET Results 2018 on its official website on Monday.
