While stressing on the undue delay caused in announcing counselling schedule for NEETMDS 2021, a plea has been filed before the Supreme Court seeking directions to the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) to release the counselling date at the earliest, and not later than three weeks in any event.

The plea filed through Advocates Charu Mathur and Tanvi Dubey has sought directions to MCC to conduct a separate counselling for the NEET-MDS 2021 and not wait for NEETPG counselling, to commence with NEET-MDS 2021 counselling. The Petitioners who are NEET-MDS aspirants and hold a BDS degree, being represented by Advocate Tanvi Dubey have challenged the 'unjust and infinite delay' caused by the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) in announcement of the counselling schedule for NEET-MDS 2021.

It may be noted that NEET-MDS is the single eligibility cum entrance examination for admission to MDS Courses for the academic session 2021. The plea has stated that while NEET-MDS usually commences in March every year, this year, even after six months of declaration of the results, there is no update regarding the counselling schedule.

According to the petitioners, any further delay in the announcement of counselling dates will lead to wastage of entire year of the petitioners and thousands of other candidates. The petitioners have argued that there is no reasonable nexus for the counselling of NEET-PG and NEET-MDS to be held together, when the former was postponed and decided not be conducted until 31st August 2021 with a one month notice to prepare thereafter.

While calling the delay arbitrary, unjust and unreasonable, the plea has further stated that delay in announcement of the counselling schedule is also against the MDS Course Regulations, 2007, which mandates the academic session to commence from 1st May and under no circumstances be delayed beyond 31st May.
