All The Private Colleges Should Adhere to NEET Says SC

Private colleges, deemed universities and associations must adhere to National Entrance Eligibility Test (NEET) is the decision of the Apex Court. The conflict between Centre and states has been going on for a long time now regarding conducting NEET. The Centre wants all the private colleges to follow uniform pattern of entrance exam for aspirants of MBBS and BDS; but the private colleges or associations across the states are blaming the Centre for curbing their freedom to conduct entrance exams under their own administrative framework.

All The Private Colleges Should Adhere to NEET


During today's hearing, Justice Dave made it clear that all the private and deemed institutions should agree to carry out their selection process for MBBS and BDS seats through NEET. However, most of the states are not in agreement with the decision of the Apex Court and they want to stay out of the umbrella of NEET.

Today's hearing was supposed to bring some good news for lakhs of candidates who have been witnessing the tug of war between the Centre and private institutions. The MBBS and BDS aspirants need to be patient for a few more days since the Centre has borrowed time till May 10 to hold discussions with all the states in order to decide the fate of NEET.

The outcomes of today's hearing

  • The Centre would clarify its stand about if students who wrote NEET-1 on May 1 should be allowed to appear for the second phase on July 24
  • The Apex Court said that NEET is mandatory
  • The private colleges cannot conduct their own exams
  • The states will be permitted to hold their exams after reviewing the outcomes of the meeting between the Centre and the States.
