SC refuses to reschedule NEET date set for May 7

NEW DELHI:  The Supreme Court of India(SC) today dismissed a plea which asked for rescheduling  of the May 7 National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 exam.

The petitioner Dr (Major) Gulshan Garg (retd), informed that the apex court  had said that  since the preparations were  complete for the conduction of exam, rescheduling was now impossible.

The writ petition filed for the extension had several reasons for it. One important one being the short time period available to students  between the board exam and the NEET.

“We are discussing the future course of action. This issue is about the future of 3 lakh students”, said Dr (Major) retd. Gulshan Garg,  Chairman of Sankalp Charitable Trust, who approached  the Supreme Court on the NEET date extension.

He informed that the trust and other stake holders in this case  will approach the concerned ministries  and  the CBSE for the same.

“Why can’t they postpone it, if there is no harm in it”, he asked.

 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), conducted NEET will be held for  admission to MBBS/BDS Courses in India in Medical & Dental Colleges run with the approval of Medical Council of India/Dental Council of India under the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India except for the institutions established through an Act of Parliament e.g. AIIMS and JIPMER Puducherry ,reports NDTV.
