NEET 2018: Bombay HC orders to stay the Counselling again, hopes of thousands of candidates soon turned to dismay

Published On 21/07/2018

Few hours after the Supreme Court ordered to overturn the Madras HC (Madurai Bench) orders which had previously stayed the counselling process, The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) once again put the NEET counselling process on hold due to cases pending before the Nagpur Bench of the Bombay High Court. It is currently unclear what the cases being heard before the Bombay High Court (Nagpur Bench) are but a perusal of the court orders available on the Bombay High Court website reveal that they are related to a Writ Petition filed by one Samiksha Raju Dhole, a NEET candidate from Maharashtra, and a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by a body called the Akhil Bhartiya OBC Mahasangh. The cases, last heard on July 19 by a two member Bench of the Bombay High Court in Nagpur comprising Justices BP Dharmadhikari and ZA Haq, are now scheduled to be heard on July 26.

Soon after the MCC released two separate notices stating that the NEET counselling process had once again been stayed due to cases pending before the Bombay High Court’s Nagpur Bench the hopes of thousands of candidates soon turned to dismay. The MCC issued the notice with regard to two separate cases are as follows-
