NEET-I examinees can�t reappear in July 24 exam: SC

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, May 6 - The Supreme Court today made clear that students, who appeared in the National Eligibility Entrance Test-I (NEET) on May 1 for admissions in MBBS and BDS courses, cannot be permitted to reappear in NEET-II on July 24.

�Those students who had appeared in NEET Phase-I shall not be permitted to appear at NEET Phase-II, but the students who could not appear in NEET Phase-I may appear in NEET Phase-II,� a Bench of Justices AR Dave, Shiva Kirti Singh and Adarsh Kumar Goel said.

The Bench, which hinted that it may consider allowing States conducting their own tests to continue with the admission process for the current academic year alone, deferred the decision on this aspect till May 9 when Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar would apprise it about the stand of the Centre.

�The issue with regard to those students who had appeared or who are due to appear in examinations conducted by the States in accordance with their State laws, shall be decided after hearing the Solicitor General,� the court said. �In view of the request made by the Solicitor General, hearing is adjourned to May 9, 2016,� the Bench said.

In the interim order, the court reiterated its earlier view on private colleges holding their separate entrance tests saying �it is clarified that no examination shall be permitted to be held for admission to MBBS or BDS studies by any private college or association or any private/deemed university.� � PTI
