NEET will not be postponed; Supreme Court turns down a plea for postponing NEET examination scheduled for September 12.
The bench says that 16 lakh students take NEET and it can’t deferred on plea of few students.
On September 3, a three-judge bench comprising Justice AM Khanwilkar, Justice Hrishikesh Roy, and Justice CT Ravikumar had adjourned the hearing on the plea to Monday (September 6).
Filed through Advocate Sumanth Nookala, the plea sought to quash the July 13 public notice scheduling National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET)-Undergraduate exams on September 12, Sunday as being “manifestly arbitrary” and “in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution of India”.
Furthermore, the petitioner has urged the court that a direction may be issued for shifting the medical entrance exam to a suitable date soon after the ongoing board/other competitive exams. A three-judge bench comprising Justice AM Khanwilkar, Justice Hrishikesh Roy, and Justice CT Ravikumar will hear the matter today.
