NEET PG Medical Counselling 2019: SC refuses to extend deadline
New Delhi : The Supreme Court has refused to extend the deadline for the counselling for filling up as many as 603 vacant seats in NEET PG Medical 2019 at various deemed universities and private colleges.
A vacation bench of justices Deepak Gupta and Surya Kant disposed of a plea by the Education Promotion Society of India that asked to extend the deadline the counselling to facilitate admission on vacant seats.
The top court had earlier said that the question is not whether it has power to do it but whether it should allow the deemed universities and colleges to fill up their vacant seats by making an exception to the set schedule of admissions.
Deemed universities and colleges had claimed that they have around 1,000 seats vacant in the post-graduate medical courses and if stray vacancy counselling round is extended then such seats could be filled.
