New Delhi: Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday July 18 issued orders to the effect of cancelling National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for admissions to medical and dental courses, post graduation courses in government and private colleges.

It is the most significant SC judgment, denying the right of Indian Medical Council (IMC) to hold uniform entrance test across the nation to seek admissions in both government and private medical colleges. 

The verdict will not hinder the admissions this year who are qualified in NEET, said SC chief judge Altamus Kabir and advocate Vikramjit Sen.
