Andra HC stays PG medical National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test
HYDERABAD: The AP High Court on Tuesday stopped the Medical Council of India (MCI) from going ahead with its National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) for postgraduate (PG) medical courses for the academic year 2013. The test is scheduled to be held on Nov 23. The HC had in October stayed the same for undergraduate (UG) course.

A division bench comprising Justices V Eswaraiah and N Ravi Shankar ordered a stay after hearing a plea by the state government which said it was aggrieved by the way MCI had planned NEET. The state government accused both the Centre and the MCI of ignoring the special rights conferred to Andhra Pradesh under Article 371(D) of the Constitution. Article 371(D) allows AP to have zone-wise reservations to help its backward areas. Additional advocate general KG Krishna Murthy told the bench that MCI's NEET notification would adversely affect the interests of students from the state. The bench directed the Union health ministry and the MCI to file their counters within two weeks.
