SC Allows MBBS and PG Medical Admission By New Order On 13 May 2013 Reversing its order passed on 13 December 2012, the Apex Court has now allowed declaration of results of entrance examinations for MBBS and post-graduate medical courses which have already been conducted in the current academic year.

The Supreme Court (SC) in its December 13 order had stated that the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council of India, as well as the states, universities and other institutions, will be entitled to conduct their respective examinations for MBBS, BDS and post-graduate courses, but shall not declare the results of the same, until its further orders.

The interim relief came in the wake of the Apex Court could not finish the hearing on the legitimacy of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) pending before it within the stipulated time. The SC bench headed by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir has taken into consideration the shortage of PG medical students in various hospitals attached to the medical colleges.

“In the interest of students and hospitals, we modify our December 13, 2012 order and allow the results to be declared on account of examination which has already been held,” the bench has said in its new order passed on 13 May 2013.

After delivering the order, the bench clarified that the admissions will only go on for the current year where the examination has already been held.

SC has also said the petitions pending with it by various agencies challenging the validity of NEET will be finally disposed in July this year.
