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.
