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.
