New Delhi:In an interim order today, the Supreme Court stayed the Madras High Court’s directive which had restrained the publication of results of NEET for admission to MBBS and BDS courses.
Almost 12 lakh students across India had appeared for the NEET (National Eligibility Entrance Test) which was conducted on May 7, 2017, in various languages, including English, Hindi and others, on the direction of the apex court.
A vacation bench, headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and also comprising Justice Deepak Gupta, handed down the interim order after hearing from the Central Board of Secondary Education.
The apex court asked the state High Courts not to entertain any petitions related to NEET 2017 examinations.
CBSE said it will declare the NEET result in two weeks.
