NEET PG candidate can't claim admissions to 2021-2022 based on 2019 rank
In a recent verdict, Supreme Court has refused to grant permission to a candidate desiring admission in PG course for academic year 2021-2022 based on his rank in NEET PG 2019. His rank in 2019 was not considered due to a discrepancy in the surname in his caste certificate. The candidate claimed that his 2019 rank be considered for the 2021-2022 admissions.
The bench of Justices LN Rao and BR Gavai, which was considering SLP assailing Madhya Pradesh High Court's order dated March 4, 2020, said that he is certainly entitled to be treated as a Scheduled Caste candidate for 2021- 2022 admissions, but his 2019 rank cannot be considered.
