Supreme Court Allows MCI To Hold NEET 2013A bench of Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir, allowed Medical Council of India (MCI) to go ahead with holding the nationwide single medical entrance test – National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2013 – while also directing transfer of related petitions pending in various courts to itself by January 15, 2013.

There are a bunch of petitions filed by various states, minority universities and private colleges, questioning applicability of the MCI decision to conduct the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to both MBBS and post-graduate courses in medicine as well as dental courses, in various High Courts across the country and Supreme Court as well.

Noting that the pending matter needs to be heard and decided soon, the CJI also directed that all transferred cases and writ petitions be listed for final hearing and disposal on January 15, 16 and 17.

The order further stated, “In the meantime, the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council of India, as well as the States and Universities and other Institutions, will be entitled to conduct their respective examinations for the MBBS, BDS and post-graduate courses, but shall not declare the results of the same, until further orders of this court.”

SC in its order has also directed the states, Union of India, Medical Council of India and the Dental Council of India to give wide publicity to this order, so that the students, who are intending to sit for the entrance examination, may have knowledge of the same.

The court also directed counsels for respective parties to make available their written submissions before it by January 7.

The CBSE will hold the first NEET-UG for under-graduate medical and dental courses in May 2013 on behalf of MCI and DCI, while the National Board of Examinations (NBE) has already held the NEET-PG for post-graduate medical and dental courses earlier this month.
