Supreme Court decision likely on NEET seats in super-supeciality courses

Friday, September 22, 2017

The Supreme Court will make a decision on the 48 seats in super supeciality courses that remained vacant in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana medical colleges.

Students aspiring to do super supeciality courses filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a directive for filling the seats that remained vacant after the NEET for Super Supeciality. NEET-SS was held on June 10 and 11 and the results were announced on July 15. The first round of counselling for admission was held in August for 1,140 seats. About 828 seats were not offered as AP and Telangana did not submit their vacancy lists.

In this back ground, the Supreme Court directed a second round of counselling which was held from September 14 to 16 after the two governments submitted vacancy position lists to the apex court. At the end of the second round of counselling, over 500 seats remained vacant all over the country and 48 were unfilled in both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana States.

In the petition filed by the students informed the Supreme Court that 48 sets remained vacant for the period of three years. The filling of these seats would be a great benefit for the students of both the States. The court would a take a decision on the method of filling the vacant seats. Though the petition was filed by AP and Telangana students, it would benefit students all over the country.
