Supreme Court cancels NEET counselling by MP govt for undergraduate medical colleges

The apex court asked the state to complete the combined counselling process for both private and government colleges in a week

The Supreme Court on Thursday cancelled the Madhya Pradesh government’s NEET counselling conducted during the 2016-17 session for various undergraduate private medical college examinations.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Justice A R Dave asked the state government to complete within a week the combined counselling process for both private and government colleges.
It said two representatives of private medical colleges would participate in the counselling process to be conducted by the state government.

The order came on a recent contempt petition filed by the Madhya Pradesh government alleging that private medical colleges have been refusing to admit students, who have taken part in the centralised counselling being conducted by it.
