The results for CBSE NEET which were originally supposed to be declared on June 8, got the green light from the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court on Monday gave permission to CBSE NEET to announce the results by June 26, thereby overruling a stay the Madras high court had issued. The CBSE which conducts NEET, said it will declare the NEET results by June 26 as per the SC order. The top court on Monday also directed all high courts, not to entertain any petition on the 2017 NEET.
“On one ground we are inclined to stay the high court’s order. What indirectly this order is doing is that it is diluting the schedule fixed by the Supreme Court,” the bench said while staying the high court’s order.
“In view of the above, the interim order is stayed and it is directed that the authorities concerned will proceed further with declaration of results for the NEET 2017 examination subject to decision of this court,” the bench said while listing the matter for further proceedings after summer vacation.
The CBSE had on June 9 moved the Supreme Court seeking an immediate stay on the Madras High Court order. The Madras High Court had stayed the declaration of results of CBSE NEET, as people from different states claimed that, questions of vernacular languages are tougher than those in English.
Last week, additional solicitor general Maninder Singh sought an urgent hearing on the CBSE’s appeal before an SC bench. He said a delay in declaring the NEET results would not only create anxiety among a vast section of the student community, it would also put in jeopardy the timely completion of admissions to undergraduate courses – MBBS and BDS – in government and private medical colleges. The admissions schedule at these government colleges has already been fixed by the apex court.The CBSE said it decided to make the question papers in languages other than in English and Hindi to ensure that in the event of any leaks, it would not have to cancel the entire examination.
