The Supreme Court of India has issued a notice over a plea filed for the Union government to declare the vacant seats of All India Quota (AIQ) under NEET-PG 2020 (Medical). The seats have been left vacant by several candidates, as the shortlisted candidates did not join college after the 2nd round of counselling. The plea requested to fill 3373 vacant seats in order of merit in the NEET-PG exam.
The plea was filed by advocate Adeel Ahmed, which stated that the exam results for admission to postgraduate courses of AIIMS, JIPMER and PGI-Chandigarh were released after Round-2 counselling of NEET-PG. As many students got admission in these colleges, a large number of AIQ seats under NEET-PG were left vacant, which were now being transferred for state counselling.
“COVID-19 Pandemic Caused Delay”
The notice was issued by a bench of Supreme Court judges A M Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna. The bench has further listed this case for an urgent hearing on 14th August 2020.
As the vacant seats were being transferred to respective states for state counselling, “many candidates like the petitioner, who were willing to avail the AIQ seats, are being deprived of the opportunity, as the vacant or lapsed AIQ seats are being passed on to the states”, the plea had argued.
COVID-19 pandemic has caused a delay in exams, results and thus counselling for several medical PG exams of colleges such as AIIMS, PGI Chandigarh and JIPMER. However, NEET PG was already conducted around January 2020. This created chaos as many students who secured seats in top medical colleges, opted out of allotted seats under NEET-PG Counselling.
According to the plea, India is under deep threat because of COVID-19 pandemic. The healthcare system has been collapsing. The country needs trained doctors and educated professionals. If the seats under All India Quota are lapsed, bright talent of the country will be deprived of opportunities and experience of top medical colleges in India. Hence, the government should intervene and the AIQ seats in Government Medical Colleges and Deemed Universities must be allotted based on the candidates’ rankings in NEET-PG 2020.
After parents writing to Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal, now students have started their petition against conducting NEET 2020 amid COVID-19. 11 students of 11 states have filed a petition at Supreme Court demanding further postponement of NEET 2020 and JEE Main until the COVID-19 pandemic is under control in India. The petition was filed by Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastav on behalf of all the 11 students. The grounds of petition are indefinite postponement of CLAT and cancellation of board exams by the government.
-On behalf of 11 students from 11 States, today I have filed a Petition in Supreme Court
-To Conduct it after COVID subsides
-Increase Exam Centres
-Give fresh opportunity to aspirants to fill Form
— Alakh Alok Srivastava (@advocate_alakh) August 6, 2020
Previously, a group of parents had written to Education Minister, Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal, demanding that the entrance exams like NEET 2020 and JEE Main be cancelled amid COVID-19, as it poses a health risk to their children and the whole family. In a recent report, KCET was held in various districts in Kerala where almost 60 asymptomatic students were found COVID-19 positive. Important thing to note here is that the number of appearing candidates was almost 1.5 lakh, around 10% of NEET (UG) candidates.
On the other hand, many students want to get over with the exams as not conducting the exams could be detrimental for their career. It could affect the whole academic year for them and delay their studies.
As per the petition filed at Supreme Court, there are three major demands of students-
- Entrance Exams such as NEET must be conducted only after order is re-established post the COVID-19 crisis.
- Test centres must be increased. There should be at least one exam centre in each district of India.
- Students and aspirants of NEET (UG) or JEE Main should be provided a fresh opportunity to fill application forms and select exam centres from scratch.
Currently, NEET (UG) 2020 is scheduled for 13th September 2020, after multiple postponements. The NEET 2020 Admit Card might be released 15 days before the exam date, which could be near the end of August. Do comment over what should be proposed by the government!
COVID-19 has stopped students from going on streets and starting a movement against conducting NEET 2020. However, these movements are now being run on the internet, as usual. With the help of twitter and facebook, students are trending the hashtag – #PostponeJEE_NEETinCovid to bring the attention of authorities. Various exams conducted recently, such as KCET had no social distancing between students even after several assurances from the authorities. 60 students who were attending this exam were found COVID-19 positive.
Social distancing norms go for a toss on the first day of Karnataka
Common Entrance Test (K-CET).

The NEET 2020 is scheduled to be conducted a week after JEE Main 2020 i.e. on 13th September 2020. The date is almost 43 days away from the date of publishing this article. As of today, the number of daily COVID-19 cases in India have reached a new record of 57,000+. Within every two days, the country is adding 1 lakh cases. Many are justifying this jump due to an increase in testing in the past few days. However, it shows that the country might not be able to cover the gap of active vs recovered cases of COVID-19.
The Aam Aadmi Party, Bihar has supported students for this cause by tweeting with the hashtag.
September is going to be celebrated as ‘National Corona Spreading Month’.
Students facing mental depression so we demand further postponement of JEE, NEET exams. #PostponeJEE_NEETinCovid

It is no doubt that the regular rise in cases has worried students and parents. UGC guidelines on conducting final year exams for colleges have already faced backlash from students. Meanwhile, Delhi University cancelled their exams until the situation was back in control. In another tweet, the National Secretary of All India Students’ Association (AISA), also tweeted in support of students.

Students have been regularly posting tweets and tagging the education minister, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal, to postpone or even cancel the NEET 2020 exam. He has regularly ensured that health and safety of students is the first priority. Moreover, schools and colleges have been shut for another month. It is clear that the decision to postpone NEET 2020, which will have a participation of at least 15 lakh students altogether, would ensure safety of students only. Although, there has been no statements regarding postponing the medical entrance any further.
New Delhi: On July 29, after receiving pleas from 4,000 NEET aspirants, Supreme Court asked the Central Government and Medical Council of India (MCI) to give a suitable response on setting up NEET exam centers in Gulf countries. The bench headed by Justice L Nageswara was behind issuing the notice to the Central Government and the MCI.
The plea of those 4000 aspirants proposed to postpone the exam until the pandemic situation eases down. Parents belonging to Doha, Qatar, Oman and UAE sought response from the highest dignitaries after Kerala High Court rejected their proposal.
Criticizing NTA, Abdul Azeez, the general secretary of Kerala Muslim Culture Center in Qatar said that if the authority wants, they can open NEET exam centers in Gulf countries as they have done for JEE Main.
The plea to the Supreme Court mentioned that NTA would only open examination centers if MCI gives a green signal. On the other end, MCI on May 21 had conveyed the message to the apex government that NEET 2020 online examination is not possible.
The plea said, “During these exceptional circumstances, the MCI and the Union government need to be flexible so as to facilitate these students to sit for NEET.”
A lot of students from the Gulf countries had tried to travel to India via the Vande Bharat Mission flights in order to sit for NEET examination to get themselves enrolled in MBBS and BDS courses in medical colleges. However, they could not get hold of seats on these flights as they are prioritizing those who are stuck abroad.
Live Update: Within the existing reservation in undergraduate medical courses, the Tamil Nadu cabinet has approved a 7.5% quota.

Palaniswami at the Secretariat, voted in favor of granting approval to the six companies who proposed an investment of Rs 5000 crore to Tamil Nadu.
As per the official sources, “The Quota within Quota covers government seats in private colleges too.”

The closure of schools and delay in results due to the countrywide lockdown amid COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the academic calendar by over 5 months for students. The Ministry of Human Resource Development received around 1.5k suggestions from educationists on reducing the curriculum from class 9th to 12th. Accepting the suggestions, CBSE has decided to reduce the 30% of class 11th and 12th syllabus. As per the notice, the core concepts have been retained while a few topics from various NCERT and CBSE books have been deleted. Education Minister of India, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal, also tweeted about the reduction in CBSE Syllabus.
📢Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalize syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts.@PMOIndia @HMOIndia @HRDMinistry @mygovindia @transformIndia @cbseindia29 @mygovindia
— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) July 7, 2020
CBSE confirmed the reduction in the class 11th & class 12th syllabus for 2021. However, there is no clarity on reduction of syllabus for Class 1st to 8th.
— CBSE HQ (@cbseindia29) July 7, 2020
What Topics Have Been Deleted For Class 11th and 12th?
CBSE has reduced the syllabus proportionally to the time lost. Classes usually resumed in April for Classes 12th and, in July for Class 11th (after 10th results). Many students want the government to reschedule the academic calendar without removing any topic.
Students can check the revised CBSE 2021 curriculum by visiting this page – CBSE Revised Curriculum 2021. Given below is the list of topics and chapters removed from the syllabus of PCB for Class 11th and 12th.
- Topics/Chapters removed from Physics – Check here
- Topics/Chapters removed from Chemistry – Check here
- Topics/Chapters removed from Biology – Check here
The reduction is being appraised by many students while a few are criticising this move. On one hand this reduction will help students to focus on core topics effectively, while on the other hand, it could also mean less knowledge of certain topics.

How Will This Impact NEET 2021 Syllabus?
NTA or MHRD has not announced any reduction in syllabus for the NEET 2021 exam or JEE Main 2021. NEET syllabus has been very similar to the CBSE curriculum in the past few years. However, there are some topics which are crucial to learn advanced concepts. Due to possible differences in the curriculum now, students might have to depend on the coaching institutes for grasping these advanced concepts.
NTA has clarified that there is no reduction in the syllabus for current year exams. NEET 2020 has already been postponed until 13th September 2020 due to exponential growing cases of the COVID-19 disease. Coaching Institutes usually start classes as early as April but are currently offering online classes to students, which also started around April 2020. While these institutes are trying to cover all the topics, it is yet questionable whether subsidising knowledge will help the students or deter their overall education quality?
