MCI keen to hold NEET-UG, approaches Supreme Court

While several states including Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have tried High Court’s of their respective states to get an interim stay, the Medical Council of India (MCI) is keen to conduct NEET-UG in all States. MCI has approached Supreme Court to give them the authority to hold the first ever common medical entrance test, the matter is likely to be taken up by Supreme Court on 05 November 2012 (via).

Unlike last year, at present any deviation in the plan of MCI is unlikely they have gone ahead and announced the test dates for NEET-PG (a common medical entrance test for postgraduate medical courses). Before announcing the official notification of NEET-UG, MCI is ensuring to gain strength legally.

It is possible that the states which are objecting to NEET-UG may go ahead and conduct their state level CETs, the problem will bother the aspiring Medicos because the colleges are governed by the Medical Council of India (MCI). If MCI asks the colleges to consider only NEET-UG, the colleges will be left with no choice. It would eventually delay the admission process, at present in Andhra Pradesh the counselling for Engineering, MCA & MBA courses were delayed for longer than expected due to an internal conflict between the State Government and college management.

The EAMCET & ICET counselling were deferred in Andhra Pradesh, the first NEET will certainly create more ambiguity as the days pass by. We will provide update on Apex Court’s verdict on NEET-UG as soon as we are aware of.

  1. neet hai to jeet hai matlab where neet is there their will be no corruption. please favour neet.
    exam without corruption is best then the other exam…..
    most imp that board marks are not counted….
    jo winner hai vo koi bhi exam may winner hai rahe ga…..
    agar board ka marks count karna hai to sab yearly kai marks count karo…..
    11 std all paper all exam + 12 std all paper all marks…
    not of only 12 std final exam…
    himat hai kaya jo bolta hai ki board ka marks count karna chata hai…….

  2. Dear all,
    Here which student want to postponed neet is bevkuf hai because this only help to score after last time preparation without fearing of 12th class exam
    so this is very appreciable step
    more i have lauch a request already for 1 year practice in village area in MBBS level but besides that in MD MS no practice or no liable to pay the nation ?
    I think re think on practice in village period for 1 year t in MD / MS degree inplace of at the time of MBBS degree
    Because very great benifit given to village people (ater MD/MS) in place of MBBS. If MCI wants to really help to village peple and pay to nation liability then remove the practice period at MBBS level and apply to MD MS level

  3. I am a student who cant write cet of any state because I never stayed in any state for too long. so I think NEET is a really great exam for students like me. plus its a lot fairer than any other cet held by the states where the reservations are done based on the college’s demand. students will get a better chance if NEET is conducted. I hope it does!

  4. 1.NEET PG DATE WAS ANNOUNCED ALL OF SUDDEN ON SEP 26TH AND APPLICATIONS WERE SOLD HURRIDLY.tHERE WAS LOT OF CONFUSION FOR SALE OF APPLICATIONS AND BOOKING THE SLOTS.
    2. ALL MEDICAL GRADUATED WERE UNDER LOT OF STRESS TO FACE THEEXAMNATION AS TIME IS VERY SHORT TO GO THROUGH THE OCEAN OF SYLLABUS.
    3.INSPITE OF THE ABOVE HURDLES, DOCTORS ARE REPPARING SERIOUSLY AMIDST ALL CONFUSION ANS STRESS.
    4.MEANWHILE 23 CASES WERE FILED AGAINST NEET. SUPREME COURT JUDGEMENT WAS EXPECTED ON 29TH OCTOBER. STILL 26 DAYS WERE LEFT FOR NEETPG.
    5.JUDGEMENT POSTPONED TO NOV 5TH. NOT EVEN 20 DAYS LEFT.AGAIN JUDGEMENT WAS POSTPONED.
    6.NOW SUPREME COURT JUDGEMENT IS EXPECTED ON 2 WHERE AS EXAMS WILL START FROM 23 NOV.
    MEANWHILE AP HIGHCOURT GAVE STAY.
    7. THIS BECAME A PCYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE FOR A DOCTOR. GETTING PG SEAT IN AP FOR A FORWARD CASTS BOY IS VERY VERY TUFF AND IT IS ACHANCE.
    8.WHY CANT THE GOVERNMENT, MCI COME FORWARD TO SETTLE THE MATTER. WHICH EXAM IS FINALLY GOING TO BE ?
    WHY MCI AND SUPREME COURT SIMPLY WATCHING THE SHOW?
    ARE THEY NOT HAVING MORAL REPSONSIBILITY TO RESOLVE THE MATTER AT THE EARLIEST?
    DOCTORS ARE TOTALLY CONFUSED WHETHER NEET IS THERE FOR ANDHRA OR NOT?

  5. Last year the Hon’ble SC felt angry and criticized the MCI for not conducting the NEETs. This year, the MCI is ready to conduct the NEETs, but…………. If the NEETs are not implemented in 2013-14,then they will never be implemented in future because as usual the same drama will be repeated in coming years also. Now the ball is with the SC. The expected historical verdict of SC alone can resolve the problems connected with implementation of the NEETs. May GOD bless the medicos!

  6. Srikanth sir, dere wz..dis news abt supreme court final decisn abt neet ug nd pg vil anncd dis nov 22nd.. It wz gvn in one of the regional newz papers..do u hv any idea abt it?

  7. In democracy everyone counts.. Those who agree and those who do not.. No one has the authority to discard the disapproval that many non hindi speaking states are having..everyone must have there say..

  8. Congratulations to MCI on its being keen to conduct NEET-UG for admission to MBBS/BDS courses for 2013-2014 academic year in all States by approaching SC to gain srength legally and by taking prompt steps to vacate the interium stays given by many High Courts against NEET-UG and NEET-PG. If the MCI fails in this endeavour, then it will certainly loose the control over Private Medical Colleges in India.

  9. Firstly I am of the view there is no real need to conduct any separate admission tests . All the students must get in based on their State Board results.Non-locals will be admitted based on their CBSE or such boards from the pooled quota .All these competitive exams are COACHING CENTRES friendly and no useful purposes are served. Anybody who disagrees and think that board results are not the true reflections of the students merits must look at the experiment TN is doing and doing great.. It is the private business houses who are doubling as the owners of the coaching centres as well as private colleges are the ones who are interested to have multiple admission entrance exams by different colleges.
    If board exams are not considered adequate then there is need for one nation one exam for entry to professional colleges. Students from State like AP lose nothing as their quota is unaffected whether their merit list start from one or one lakh as long as all the seats are occupied based on the relative ranks in the NEET and no seats is usurped by any candidate from any other states.

  10. NEET should be post ponded upto 2014 because MCI has declared NEET UG exam by their notification of 27-02-2012. At that time children has been passed 08 months of their 11th standard. NEET syllabus is 20 to 40% differ than state board syllabus. No study material is available in regional language.

    1. If NEET is postponed to 2014 then your juniors will ask to postpone NEET UG to 2015, last year the same thing happened hence NEET has been postponed to 2013. Even if the syllabus is indifferent, the paper will have topics mostly common in all state syllabus. It won’t be an exclusive CBSE test.

      1. If study material available in all regional language and exam to be declared before 2 years of exam date then no body will ask to post pone NEET-UG exam.We are facing problem of late declaration and study material in regional language.

  11. I wish NEET is accepted in all states, so that students who really deserve the seats may receive it without any difficulties and also wish that unlike other CETs which is conducted for name sake I trust that it is conducted in a genuine manner.

    1. Everyone is hoping that NEET will be corrupt free since the test will be conducted by the Centre not by any state. Wish all the future medicos good luck!

  12. Hathi ke dant khane ko aur or dikhane ko aur. This may be tactical move of MCI to postpone NEET as it is very difficult to conduct NEET for MCI as most of the pvt medical colleges are controlled by politicians of all the parties. Ultimately , MCI is also a body of Govt whose officers are getting appointed by Govt.

  13. Yeah! with quota for state remaining same, moreover merit will be truly choosen in corrupt pvt colleges students will gain with increased seats. apprehension about syllabus spread by lobby’s are all false. Students competing from same sections will have same degree of competition (relatively less 2 be specific with pvt seats being on merit). So gear up ur studies u ll have ur fruit.

    Love u MCI FOR ELIMINATING CORRUPTION!

    Inqlaab zindabad!

  14. Meet ug is of course beneficial. Moreover as per mci`s announcement we are preparing for neet only. Now MCI should not change their decision.

  15. Ofcourse NEET UG Is not a good decision, just 5 months barely left when they asking us to indulge in it…
    we were already preparing for Board exams of our states.
