The Supreme Court of India will hear the petition regarding the ordinance of the apex court on the issue of NEET examination.
Anand Rai who is a health activist, filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the centre's decision to promulgate the ordinance. The petition sought the decline of the ordinance that questioned the center's flip-flop on the issue. The center had initially accepted the apex court's order and later partially reversed it through the ordinance. On the petition, Anand Rai 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 center 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'."
"NEET should be implemented for all medical colleges from this year itself. State medical examinations are a source of immense corruption, which is evident from the Vyapam scam," Rai added.
This decision was in violation of Section 14 (right to equality), Section 21 (right to life) regarding its arbitrary character and with also regard to the students, as they would suffer because of the ruling dispensation constantly changing its stand as a flip-flop decision. To minimize and to find a solution to this problem, the petition has been filed.
