SC reserves order on PIL on AIPMT for medical college admissions
The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on a PIL seeking holding of NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT).
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on a PIL seeking holding of NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) for admission to undergraduate courses across the country.
As the apex court bench headed by Justice Anil R. Dave reserved the order, it said it would not present a fait accompli for states that had contended that NEET could not be thrust on them as they have their own statutory regime for holding entrance examination for admission to medical colleges.
At the outset of the reading, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) told the court that it will hold NEET in two phases -- first on 1 May and then on 24 July this year.
The result will be declared on 17 August, followed by counselling and admissions.
The court is hearing a PIL filed by NGO Sankalp Charitable Trust, which has contended that as authorities were not conducting the NEET for the students across the country aspiring to join medical colleges, the private medical colleges were holding their own exams to admit the students.
