The Supreme Court on Friday withheld its decision regarding the J&K government’s pleas seeking exemption from National Entrance and Eligibility Test (NEET).
Giving details of today’s hearing in SC, state’s Law Secretary, M Ashraf Mir, told Kashmir Life over phone from New Delhi, “Medical Council of India (MCI) told court that they don’t have any problem if the states having their own statutory bodies (like BOPEE) continue to conduct medical entrances for one more year.”
Mir added quoting MCI response to SC, “but there is no respite for private colleges. It applies to government run institutions only.”
The response by MCI comes as a relief to state government which is under intense pressure of continuing with its own Common Entrance Test (CET).
Mir further said, “the SC withheld its decision till May 09.”
