New Delhi: The Supreme Court has refused to cancel the 2017 examination of the 2017 and said that by doing so, more than six lakh candidates who have passed the examination for admission in medical and dental courses will be affected. A three-member bench of Justice Deepak Mishra, Justice Ajay Manikrao Khanwilkar and Justice Mohan Shantanagoudar said that it would be very difficult to disrupt the conclusions of the judgment as 6.11 lakh out of 11.35 lakh candidates have passed the examination and their counseling The process is continuing.

The Supreme Court refused to take the examination again on May 7 and declared it invalid. The Supreme Court also refused to ban the ongoing counseling across the country. The court said that out of 11.74 lakh students, 6 lakh students have passed the examination. At the time, the counseling process can not interfere. The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the CBSE and the Center seeking a reply on the petition filed in different languages in different languages. The Supreme Court will hear the matter on July 31.

Many petitions have been filed for the NEET exam on May 7. It has been said in the petition that the question papers were given differently in English, Hindi and eight other languages. In this case, the exams should be declared invalid and the reexamination should be ordered. At the same time, it was said from the center that now the court should not interfere in such a situation because it will cause problems to the students. Anyway, the level of difficult questions in question papers in each language was the same.

It is noteworthy that a few days back the Supreme Court had approved the extension of the date for completion of counseling for this year. Now the counseling of MBBS will be done on August 28 and the counseling of BDS will be completed by September 10. The Supreme Court stamped the schedule of the Medical Council of India and the Dental Council of India as the result was delayed due to the ban on the Madras High Court.

During the hearing, MCI and DCI on behalf of the Supreme Court were told that in 2016 the Supreme Court had fixed the schedule. Under this, the NEET examination was conducted on May 7 but in the meantime, Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court banned the result. This resulted in the coming result on June 1 stopped. On June 12, the Supreme Court banned the high court’s decision and on June 26 the result was declared. Because of this, the counseling started from July 3 instead of June. Similarly, BDS has also suffered the same problem. The Supreme Court accepted these pleas and approved the MCI’s schedule for counseling.
