HYDERABAD: A division bench of Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday reserved its orders to Thursday in petitions filed challenging a letter issued by the Centre directing both the varsities to conduct a common counselling for seats of NEET-Super Speciality-2017 at the national level.

A bench of Justice V Ramasubramanian and Justice T Rajani was dealing with petitions filed by several aspirants who contended that admission to professional courses in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are governed by the Presidential Order issued in exercise of the power conferred under Article 371-D of the Constitution.  The bench earlier stayed the counselling of NEET for admission to the said courses in the colleges affiliated to NTR University of Health Sciences in AP and Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences in Telangana.

One set of students wanted the seats to be open for all the students in the country based on NEET ranking so that the students from AP and Telangana can get seats in other states. While other sets of students want the seats to be filled as per Article 371-D and the Presidential Order so that the students from other states will not be able to get admission in the seats under NTR and Kaloji Universities for health sciences.
