NEET PG 2013: Supreme Court likely to declare verdict today

The Supreme Court is expected to take decision on February 12 regarding separate entrance exams of NEET PG 2013 for state governments and private universities for admissions in medical courses.

Earlier, state governments and private universities had objected to a Medical Council of India (MCI) decision for a common entrance test.

The results of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) will be declared based on decision taken by SC.

Private colleges have started conducting their own entrances for Medical as Supreme Court has delayed the results of NEET PG.

The Medical Council of India(MCI) had announced the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test, an all-India exam in February 2012. However, several state government and private colleges raised objections.

The Supreme Court is yet to pass the verdict regarding the results. However, when the results are declared, candidates can check the result here

Never expected that SC will also start playing in the hands of Medical Mafias/Brokers who fix the seats and deal the money.Lost hope in SC, anyway judges are human and Indian, how they can be untouched by corruption

Extremely unfortunate that efforts to streamline and improve medical post graduate education has hit this hurdle and honourable SC also does not seem to understand the urgency of the situation. The issue is of utmost importance and hearings should have been held on it even on holidays instead of giving 5 days break between hearings. 3 and 2 yrs courses will now be reduced minimum by 2-3 months each. That this will effect the quality of these postgraduates is forgone conclusion but seems of no consequence to those at the helm of affairs.
