Supreme Court allows common entrance test for admission in medical colleges across the country

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday removed the obstacle in the implementation of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), a common entrance test for admission in undergraduate and postgraduate medical and dental courses across the country.

Recalling its June 2013 order, in which a three-judge bench by a majority of 2:1 had ruled that the Medical Council of India (MCI) did not have the jurisdiction to enforce common entrance test (CET) on private medical colleges, the apex court said it will hear the case afresh on validity of the common entrance test.

“Till the matter is decided NEET can be implemented,” said a five-judge bench of Justice Anil R Dave, Justice A K Sikri, Justice R K Agrawal, Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice R Banumathi.
