MCI says NEET cannot be postponed further, files affidavit with Supreme Court. MCI said that NEET 2020 couldn’t be postponed any further to prevent any more deviation in the academic calendar. It placed an affidavit with the Supreme Court of Friday on the matter.
The Medical Council of India has submitted before the Supreme Court that the postponement of the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) Undergraduate (UG) 2020 shall be a “drastic deviation” from the academic schedule which “may affect the subsequent academic years” of the students. In an affidavit filed on Friday, the MCI said the matter of overseas examination centres for NEET doesn’t deserve the indulgence of the top court in view of the fact that the Government of India has permitted travel to and from other countries, through Vande Bharat Mission.
NO exam centre outside India
MCI also said that no exam entre can be set up outside India since the preparations for conducting NEET was a year-long process and that kind of control couldn’t be had on exam centres abroad. The National Testing Agency (NTA) said in an affidavit filed on August 11 that the common medical test was done in a single shift and globally so that there is no paper leak and uniformity is maintained. The “sanctity of the said examination will be lost” if the exam doesn’t take place at the same time for everyone. NEET is conducted in a paper-book format instead of online to maintain uniformity. JEE, however, will be held in both online and offline modes from September 1 to 6.
Vande Bharat Missions Flights Underway, says MCI
The affidavit filed by the Medical Council of India in response to this plea has said that the issue of having more NEET 2020 exam centres overseas was a matter that doesn’t require indulgence of the court. The council states that the Government of India has already launched Vande Bharat Mission, which allows flights and travel to and from other countries. The Government of India, under the Vande Bharat Mission, permitted Indian citizens, including overseas citizens of India, to come to India by special flights, the council said while seeking dismissal of the plea.
Govt says NEET won’t be postponed further
Union government clarified that NEET wouldn’t be postponed any further and would be conducted on September 13 as planned all across India.
