Central Board Of Education (CBSE) is scheduled to conduct Phase II of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) on July 24, 2016. Supreme Court (SC) of India will now hear the petition on see-saw approach on the examination and the students will ultimately bear the brunt of this decision.
The Supreme Court will now hear a plea brought by health activist Anand Rai. Rai is also known for bringing the controversial Vyapam scam to light, which was an admission and recruitment scandal in Madhya Pradesh. He has filed the plea against the Centre's decision to promulgate the ordinance as the center's flip-flop or constantly changing decision on the issue of this examination which will indeed affect the future of the aspirants of the examination. The apex court had on May 27 refused to stay the National Eligibility Entrance Test NEET ordinance as many states were excluded from the list which will conduct the examination. List of excluded states which include: Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Punjab for this year.
The petitioner said "Various associations across the country have to be treated with equality under law and administrative authority should be exercised to assure a degree of fair decision-making. The Centre had given an undertaking and fulfilled criteria for a unified NEET, and yet within four weeks, it passed the ordinance, the petition said, calling the ordinance arbitrary." "This would go on to show mala fide and ill intent towards the admission of students who will ultimately suffer because of this see-saw approach by the center," the petition also stated.
The Central Board Of Education (CBSE) had proposed conducting NEET in two phases. In the recent notification by the board, the board will activate the link to download the Admit Card for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), second phase, on the official portal on Friday July 08, 2016. This is in accordance with the tentative schedule which is issued by the board.
