NEET PG_LegallySpeaking

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to consider a plea requesting an extension of the internship cut-off for candidates preparing for the NEET PG test scheduled for June 23 this year.

The Bench

After listening to the arguments for a while, a bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud along with justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra stated that an extension cannot be granted.

“I mean people are bound to fall on the side of a particular line when there is a cut-off,” remarked the CJI.

The Petitioner

However, the bench allowed petitioner Riddhesh, who resides in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh, to continue pursuing the competent authorities to whom representations had previously been made on this matter.

Declining the plea, the court stated that the issues strictly belong within the policy domain. The current cut-off date for internship for those appearing in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) PG is August 15.
