MHT CET 2020 – Supreme Court dismisses plea seeking deferment of Maharashtra Engineering Entrance exams. The Supreme Court of India On Monday dismissed a plea seeking Postponement of Maharashtra Common Entrance Test, or MHT CET 2020. A Bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and Subhash Reddy said that that the court will not stop MHT CET 2020 as it has already allowed the conduct of JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020.
“We already allowed conducting JEE and NEET, how can we now stop exams in one state? You should have checked our orders in previous cases,” the court said. Maharashtra CET 2020 was previously postponed by Minister of Higher and Technical Education Uday Samant. The new date for the exam is yet to be confirmed. MHT CET exam is conducted every year for admission to various undergraduate and postgraduate professional courses.
The students and parents had held their constant demand for cancellation of these entrance exams owing to the deaths caused by the pandemic. Recently, Commissioner of CET Cell, Sandeep Kadam said that the examination would be conducted online, but not in a proctored manner and there was no chance of considering JEE Mains scores for engineering admissions.
“Due to the global epidemic of coronavirus, MHT-CET 2020 has been postponed till further orders from the State Common Entrance Examination Cell”, stated an earlier notice on the official page of Maharashtra CET. Even Uday Samant, the Higher and Technical Education Minister Maharashtra earlier informed through his official twitter account that entrance exams of various subjects of Department of Higher Education and Technical Education have been postponed. The step was taken due to the rising number of COVID 19 cases in the state of Maharashtra.
“There is no ground to interfere with policy decision. The postponement of the NEET/JEE will put the career of students in peril as the whole academic year is at stake”, said a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra. The court had asserted that life cannot be put on hold due to COVID-19 crisis.
