New Delhi: Medical Counselling Committee, MCC under the Directorate General of Health Services, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has postponed the online NEET Counselling 2018 process as the Bombay High Court, which was previously supposed to announce its verdict on July 26, has now adjourned the Public Interest Litigation, PIL no. 87/2018 to July 31
NEET 2018 Counselling process under All India Quota is now scheduled to resume on or after July 31. Candidates waiting for the NEET UG Counselling to resume are advised to log on to mcc.nic.in on or after the said date.
An official notification on the website reads that Hon’ble High Court of Bombay Nagpur Bench has adjourned the PIL No. 87/2018 to 31.07.2018.
NEET Counselling 2018 was previously delayed due to Madras High Court’s stay order to grant 196 grace marks to candidates who appeared for NEET UG 2018 examination in Tamil language. Apparently, the translation of 48 questions had been incorrectly done from English to Tamil. Supreme Court, in a big relief to CBSE, stayed the Madras HC order over grace marks row.
Meanwhile, NewsX reports that as the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court put a halt on the second round of NEET Counselling, CBSE knocked the doors of the Supreme Court and filed a plea in the matter. The application has reportedly been accepted by the apex court and has allocated July 31 as the date of hearing.
Medical dialogues team had earlier reported that MCC had issued a notice warning medical aspirants against touts/agents.
