The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to declare National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) results, paving way for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses to all medical colleges.
The apex court vacation bench of Justice Ashok Bhushan stayed the interim order of the Madras High Court order which had restrained the publication of NEET results.
Earlier, the CBSE had moved the Supreme Court challenging the Madras High Court order that put a stay on the declaration of the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) results. The board in its plea has asked for the court to allow it to declare the results.
On 25 May, the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court had passed an interim order, restraining the CBSE from declaring NEET results that was held on 7 May.
Almost 12 lakh students across India had appeared for the NEET in various languages, including English, Hindi and others. On the direction of the apex court, the NEET was conducted on various languages in the country.
