New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday barred medical admissions in Tamil Nadu till August 22.
It also asked the Medical Council of India and the State government to balance between students who got through National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and rural students unequipped for the test.
The court ordered the State government to provide the details of how many students from State board had qualified for NEET by Tuesday. “We don’t want a situation where NEET is demolished”, it said.
“Our motto is ‘whatever we do, a student who laboured for NEET and got a rank should not suffer at whatever cost,” it said.
