New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday allowed
the Medical Council of India to go ahead with the single
eligibility-cum-entrance examination for MBBS and
post-graduate medical courses in the country.

A bench headed by Justice R V Raveendran said MCI can go
ahead with the common entrance examination for the coming
academic year.

Medical Council of India, on October 22, had filed an
application seeking impleadment of all states and union
territories as parties to the writ petition seeking a common
entrance examination for admission to MBBS and post-graduate
medical courses.

Earlier, the apex court had sought the responses of the
Centre and all states and union territories on the plea by
MCI.

Though the court, in an interim order, has allowed the
MCI to go ahead with the CET, it will hear the various
stakeholders as state governments, private medical colleges
and those run by the minorities may have some objections.
