NEET PG Case: Supreme Court Hearing/Verdict Latest Update

Hello Everyone!
Will it be saved or will it perish?

I have come across many information across the web over the past few days regarding the NEET PG Supreme Court Verdict.And all of it claims to be from "reliable sources".

I would suggest you people not to pay too much attention to the unconfirmed news from the so-called reliable sources for your own good.It is just going to affect your psyche and leave you disappointed.

Let me give you some examples of the "rays of hope" that were quashed every single time our case was taken up for hearing(sometimes even not taken up!)

(1)Leading News Channel CNN IBN had reported that a Verdict was likely on 12.02.2013.It said,

" The Supreme Court is likely to decide on Tuesday(12/2/2013) whether state governments and private universities can conduct separate entrance exams for admissions in medical courses. State governments and private universities had objected to a Medical Council of India (MCI) decision for a common entrance test. The results of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) will be declared based on Tuesday’s decision."

What really happened on 12/02: Case was postponed to 13th!(and then to 14th)

(2)Another very widespread rumour was that the NEET Case Verdict is coming on the 15.02.2013. (Some forums also went on to say that NEET was 99% sure)

What really happened on 15/02: NOTHING!! Yes, nothing happened...The case wasn't even listed for that day

(3)The same forum on 20.02.2013 posted that "There will be no NEET this time"
Yet again, "unconfirmed news from sources"

The latest to join this lot is that the Verdict is going to come out tomorrow
Source:some Marathi newspaper article

Now, I do not understand Marathi so I would give the benefit of the doubt to the paper as in it can be just an article about the ongoing case.

But NEET Verdict is next to impossible tomorrow.Let me tell you WHY?

»The NEET PG Case has been listed in the final causelist for Feb. 26,2013 as Item No. 6 in the Chief   Justice's Court.There have been two occasions when the case was not even taken up for hearing.It can happen tomorrow also!(Please don't think this is negative thinking.I'm just being realistic)

»The lawyer representing the minority institutions(Mr. Rajeev Dhawan) will continue with his arguments.He probably needs half a day to complete his arguments

»After that the MCI lawyers will defend NEET.(It cannot be done in less than a day minimum<comon sense>.So, again no chance of a likely verdict tomorrow)

Anyway, I just want to emphasize that on the fact that we are medicos.We are known for our application of mind.We should not be misled so easily by some irresponsible comments from some people who do not understand what all this means to us and are just doing it for the heck of it.

We cannot stop people from spreading rumours but what we can stop is getting carried away by such wrong information.

Please keep your cool.Each one of us is frustrated to see ourselves in such a state.

I would keep you guys posted about the live updates from the Supreme Court hearing on the 26th but at this point in time all we can do is Hope.

As they say, "Hope for the best but be prepared for the worst"

Please pass this on to others if you find it useful!
