Supreme Court stayed the 30th August order of the Bombay high court till 19th September  and listed the matter before the Constitution bench where similar matters are pending.

On 30th August Bombay High Court stayed the Maharashtra government’s decision mandating centralised counselling for the students who appeared for the NEET this year for medical and dental courses.

It had allowed the deemed universities in Maharashtra to hold their own counselling sessions for MBBS/BDS admissions.

Bombay High Court had stayed the mandatory states common counselling, but made it clear that the deemed universities shall admit students strictly on the basis of NEET 2016 score.

The UGC order, however, clarifies that deemed universities cannot conduct their own counselling and must go through the states common counselling process.
