In sharp contrast to announcement for EAMCET-2013, the decision on National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to MBBS and BDS courses across the country will be prolonged beyond mid-Feb.

The ongoing proceedings at Supreme Court do not show a sign of being resolved early as the three judge bench has been hearing the 115 petitions filed by private medical college associations as well as various state governments opposing the implementation of the exam in academic year 2012-13.

The Medical Council of India is likely to respond to the petitions by second week of Feb, following which a decision will be taken.

Meanwhile the state government has decided to go ahead with conducting EAMCET for various streams including admissions to MBBS and BDS courses. The merit list for the BPC stream will be announced following the apex court’s decision, indicated EAMCET convener at a press conference on Thursday.
