SC refuses to defer counselling process for MBBS admissions | India News

NEW DELHI: Supreme Court Friday refused to defer counselling process for admission in colleges on the basis of controversy-marred NEET-UG results and posted hearing on all petitions including those alleging paper leak to July 8.
A vacation bench of Justices Vikram Nath and S V N Bhatti said all aspects of the controversy would be examined next month on re-opening of court after summer recess.
The lawyer, appearing for students, pleaded that counselling process be deferred for two days till July 8 but the court said that the process took time and admission would not be done in a day.
The apex court is now virtually being flooded by petitions on alleged irregularities in conducting the test. More than three dozen petitions have been filed by more than 100 students so far in the case in SC. The court has been issuing notice on all petitions and clubbed all of them together to be heard on July 8.
One of the petitioners also challenged the decision to hold re-test for 1,563 students who were granted grace marks for not getting full time to take the test. As petitioners pressed for interim relief, SC turned it down and told them that if they succeed in the legal battle then everything will be cancelled – entrance, as well as admissions done. TNN
