New Delhi: The Supreme Court is likely to decide on Friday whether Jammu and Kashmir Government can continue with their entrance examinations to medical and dental colleges after the top court made Medical Council of India’s (MCI) National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) mandatory from this year.
State’s Commissioner Secretary Law Muhammad Ashraf Mir on Thursday told CNS that the court will pass its judgment on Friday.
He however added that during court observation the Division Bench headed by justice AR Dave made it clear that State Subject Law of Jammu and Kashmir will be respected and only permanent state subjects will be allowed to take admissions in the medical colleges of Jammu and Kashmir. “The decision will come on Friday but one thing court has assured us that Article 370 will not be trampled and State Laws will be respected,” he said.
He further added that if latest apex court ruling will be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir, still the non-state subjects will not get admission in local colleges of the state.  “The court observed that whether medical entrance examinations will be conducted either by BOPEE or CBSE in Jammu and Kashmir, only permanent residents will be allowed to take admissions in the state colleges,” Mir said.
He further said that the court also made it clear that there will be no impact of Supreme Court ruling on reservation rule. “Let me make it clear, whatever judgment the court will pass on Friday, one thing is clear that non-state subjects will not be permitted to get admission in Jammu and Kashmir colleges,” Mir claimed.
Jammu and Kashmir government on Monday had filed an application in the Supreme Court seeking exemption of the state’s aspirants from National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for medical courses.
