The Supreme Court overruled the Madras High Court order which restrained the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) from declaring the NEET 2017 results.
The Supreme Court today ordered CBSE to declare NEET 2017 results for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in different government and private colleges. The apex court asked CBSE to declare the result by 26 June, 2017. The results were originally scheduled to be released on 8 June.
The Supreme Court’s order came as a relief to 12 lakh medical aspirants who appeared for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017. The court has directed CBSE to proceed with the process of result declaration, counselling and admission process.
On June 9 2017, the CBSE board moved to the Supreme Court for seeking an immediate stay on Madras HC’s order released on 24 May. The board has also asked for transfer of petitions on NEET 2017 from various High Courts to the Supreme Court.
The apex court has directed all High Courts not to entertain any petition on NEET 2017.
