Body of students’ parents has moved the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the National Testing Agency and the Ministry of Education to ensure that NEET UG-20 and JEE (Main)-20 are held in September 2020 as notified in the 2nd revised schedule.
The plea under Article 32 by the Gujarat Parents Association has been drawn and filed by Advocate on Record Jaikriti S Jadeja, and it is to be argued by Advocate Mitul K Shelat.
The plea seeks to highlight the adverse impact that will ensue if the Entrance exams are further postponed, in particular, the loss of an academic year for students of the 2020-2021 batch.
This plea comes shortly after a group of 11 NEET-UG, and JEE aspirants moved the Supreme Court seeking the cancellation of the September exams given the rising number of coronavirus infections. These students have prayed that the exams be postponed to a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided, and normalcy has returned.
