A petition was on Monday moved before the Supreme Court,seeking a review of the judgment that scrapped the common entrance test for admission to medical courses. The petition by NGO Sankalp sought a re-look at the majority verdict of the court,which by a 2-1 judgement held the all-India common entrance test for medical admissions as illegal and unconstitutional and said it interfered with the rights of private,minority and linguistic institutions to admit students. The then Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice Vikramjit Sen shared the majority view. The plea,however,has pointed to the dissenting judgment by Justice Anil R Dave,who held NEET to be not only legally and constitutionally valid but added it would prove to be a “boon” to students aspiring to join the medical profession.
