(OK! But who is fighting for me?)

NEET PG 2013: An Expert Review On Supreme Court Decision

We are here with Dr. Anantprakash Saraf, an intern at the GMC Nagpur of 2007 Batch. He is generally the one the who get us the news about the various exams like NEET PG Exam, even before rest of the India knows about it. He is giving us up to date information about the NEET PG Cases going on in Supreme Court since the beginning. He is aware of the NEET PG Supreme Court Case since when the first case against the NEET PG and MCI , is filed by CMC Vellore. So we expect from him some of the insight regarding the NEET PG Cases going on the Supreme Court.

1. Hi Anant. Please tell us about actually who and over What topics they are  Fighting in the Supreme Court in the NEET PG case?


Private medical colleges, deemed universities and two states Tamil Nadu and Andhra pradesh are fighting against MCI and Union of India for seeking exemption from NEET PG and UG examinations as notified by MCI under  law by two gazette notifications in year 2010 and 2012..

The main and common point of conflict is to which extent the statutory regulatory body under the constitution of India i.e. MCI can regulate  medical admissions of private aided or unaided, minority or non  minority institutions..

2. Please tell us about the NEET PG Cases in the Supreme Court, whatever happened till date in short from the beginning till date?


It all started in 2010 when MCI was dissolved and a new board of Governers was constituted by Government of India. Taking cue from suggestions made by Supreme Court itself MCI came up with Gazette Notification of NEET PG. Some private colleges and CMC Vellore moved to the court against it. MCI got a nod for conducting NEET PG from court in such a case. Then in 2011 came up a document from MCI BOG called VISION 2015 proposing reforms in medical education and MCI decided to go ahead with NEET PG Examination from 2012. In the meanwhile MCI again got a go ahead from the  Supreme Court in another case.

In between all the confusion and uncertainties MCI got a jolt from AIIMS, New Delhi which expressed incapacity to conduct such a big exam. So MCI again issued a gazette notification in February 2012 and asked NBE(National Board of Examination) to conduct NEET PG Examination. With all secrecy every one kept mum till September’12 end, when shockingly came the NEET PG Exam notification. Then followed a series of litigation’s against MCI in courts all over India by Private Colleges. MCI requested Supreme court to transfer all cases to Apex court and club them, thus was born the mega case of NEET Transfer Case (Civil) 98/2012.

As there are over 75 Private colleges as petitioner, each counsel taking its own long time to put up arguments, case is seeming to extend till eternity…

3.  What is the current position of the NEET PG Case in Supreme Court and  What is the Verdict Expected to come taking in consideration the  discussions done up till now?


Case is listed for further hearing on 2nd April.. Court is listing the case on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday every week, but hearing being uncertain due to many reasons. With barely 15 hearings remaining before court goes on vacation(from 13 may till 1st July), chances of early verdict seem dismal.

Nothing can be guessed about final verdict, as it completely depends on constitutional interpretation and the sense of justice of the Judges of Chief  Justice’s court..

4. In whose favor is the Supreme Court Result is expected to come?


As I said no one can predict.. But if we see the history of verdicts  in many important cases, it may be a mixed verdict.. I mean some   points of both the parties may be considered..

5.Is there any estimation about about when the NEET PG 2013 Result Declaration will be done?


Most likely after final Supreme Court Verdict, as chief justice has already rejected  plea for interim order for results about 20 times!!

6.Please also explain about the Holi holidays of Supreme Court?


Who am I to explain this? With all due respect to the Supreme Court, Me too find it absurd and weird that when more than 3 crore cases are  pending in courts of India, how can they have Holi vacation of 1 week  and summer vacation of one and half months!

No contempt of court intended..

7.What is the status of NEET PG 2014? Will it happen or not, please explain?What about All India Exam?


While the concept of ‘NEET’ hangs in balance, one thing is sure that there will be an exam for 50% quota seats even if MCI looses.. Now whether that will be called NEET or AIPG is  uncertain.. Whether MCI  asks AIIMS or NBE to conduct that, one thing is most likely that it  will be a CBT i.e. Computer based test, because its safer, world wide  tested and trusted method and AIIMS is also debuting this MAY in the  world of CBT..

8.What should the students selected in the other exams like(JIPMER and   NIMHANS) should do? Should they take the seat or wait for NEET PG 2013  Result?


These are ‘institutes of national importance’ and those lucky and super talented people selected are wise enough to take their own decisions.. Best luck to all of them..

9. Anything you want the readers should know about the what happening  with us and tips for other students? Any advice to seniors if possible?


No tips.. Mujhe khud tips ki jarurat hai..

Thank you Anant for giving us this valuable insight into what’s actually going on in the NEET PG Supreme Court Case and telling us over actually what topics they are fighting…..We all hope that the result will come soon and our misery will end.

If you want to ask questions or just drop a word about the post supporting or opposing what is being discussed please do reply in comments.. It will be a great encouragement and Anant might try to clear to our doubts.

And most importantly please share this post with your colleagues on Facebook and Twitter, if you find it even little interesting to read….
