The Supreme Court did not hear the NEET-PG case on April 11. The case hearing has been postponed to April 16, 2013.

The news comes as another setback to students who had taken NEET-PG in November 2012. Results were supposed to be declared on January 31, 2013.

The delay has affected 90,000 students who now do not know whether they are to give up their jobs and get a seat in medical school.

The deadline for counselling is May 31. There was some speculation that this deadline could be extended depending on when NEET-PG results would be declared.

The following arguments have been made:

>> Private, minority and deemed universities should only accept NEET-UG and NEET-PG

>> No other interviews or additional exams are allowed

>> Two state committees would ensure admission practices followed rules and regulations

Students now hope that a verdict will be reached soon. The Supreme Court goes on vacation on May 13 and only opens on July 1.
