NEET 2016: SC Orders Centralised Counseling in Deemed Universities in Maharashtra

Last Updated - March 07, 2017

Recently, in an order passed by Supreme Court for the counseling of medical seats through NEET, the court has remarked that there will be a centralised NEET Counseling which will be conducted as a joint exercise by a panel comprising officials from Maharashtra government and representatives of the deemed universities. The further clarification was sought after the declaration of this order, regarding the seats which are already filled. In the wake of this, the apex court made clear that the admissions which have already been made to various colleges and universities would not be affected due to this decision.

This has proved to be a major relief to the medical aspirants, as the candidates were dealing with lot of confusions, right from the mandate of NEET to the commencement of NEET counseling as per the NEET Merit List. Supreme Court also commanded that the admission process have to be completed by October 7, 2016. Prior to this order, the deemed Universities argued that the state government is violating their fundamental right to head their own institutions and hold individual counseling for students. Already, majority of students, who have cleared National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) have taken admission through the seats offered to them in various colleges and medical institutes. As per recent records, 85% seats are already been filled.

National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test, more commonly known as NEET is introduced this year for admission into Medical and Dental courses across India. The entrance exam aims to provide a common ground for admissions in medical and dental colleges. It also aims to bring uniformity to the admission into medical courses. NEET is a highly competitive examination where lakhs of Medical students from India compete to get the most sought after seats.

A bench comprising Justices A.K. Sikri and L. Nageswara Rao said “In so far as second or third counselling is concerned, that shall be a joint exercise which means that it shall be done by the Committee of the State Government which shall include one representative each from these universities. The respondent universities shall nominate their respective representatives forthwith". The bench further added that “This shall ensure admission of those who are more meritorious but left out, but are interested in taking admission in the respondent universities”.

The court order, for the purpose of counseling has directed that all the records related to admissions with the universities shall be handed over to the committee of the state government.
