In an interim order on the petitions, the Madras High Court on May 24 stayed the publication of the NEET results and asked the officials of the Medical Council of India, the CBSE director and the Union health ministry to file their counter affidavits. Following which, the CBSE moved the Supreme Court demanding an immediate stay on High Court’s order restraining the publication of the results.
Madra HC had put an interim stay on pleas that alleged that a uniform question paper was not given in the exams and there was a lot of difference between the ones in English and in Tamil. CBSE told the Supreme Court that it was due to the High court’s order that the schedule and subsequent admission for MBBS and BD had gone “haywire”.
