Plea filed in SC against NEET ordinance

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, May 26 - A plea was today filed in the Supreme Court seeking quashing of a recently-promulgated ordinance which allows States to continue with their separate entrance tests for MBBS and BDS courses, besides uniform medical entrance test NEET, for academic year 2016-17.

The petition, which is likely to be listed for hearing before a vacation bench in a day or two, has been filed by Indore-based doctor Anand Rai who also claims to be a whistle blower in the Vyapam scam.

Besides seeking quashing of the ordinance, which got Presidential assent on May 24, the plea has also sought a stay on the operation of the ordinance as an interim relief.

Referring to Centre�s stand to support the single-window National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for admissions, the plea said the government has now taken a �complete U-turn� which shows �mala fides and ill intent towards the process of admission of students who shall suffer the most�. � PTI
