Parents vs Deemed universities in new NEET controversy

A fresh controversy over the medical course counseling has sprouted post the Bombay HC verdict granting consent to Deemed Universities to conduct counseling for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in Maharashtra.

Post the Bombay High Court verdict granting statutory rights to Deemed Universities to conduct counseling for medical admissions, parents of medical aspirants in Maharashtra are bent on challenging the Institution’s prerogative to Supreme Court.

A disgruntled parent stated that the SC needs to be acquainted with the problems faced by the young aspirants in the name of policy and rules. The parent added that while NEET was introduced to facilitate uniformity in the Medical Admissions, their children were running pillar to post for admissions.

Despite the Supreme Court’s directives of considering NEET as the sole basis for Medical admissions, many Private-run Medical Institutes in Maharashtra had sought to organize their counselling for Medical admissions at their Institutes.

Parents to Protest against Deemed Universities over MBBS Counselling

  • Sources reveal that the disgruntled parents have sought assistance from a retired Supreme Court Judge to file their petition in Supreme Court.


  • While the discontented parents are bent to fight for a common procedure, the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) officials in an interaction with the Media revealed that the DMER might advocate for a common Medical Admission from the upcoming academic year.
  • Parents of the Medical aspirants stated that the Deemed Universities in various states across the country organizing their own counseling for Medical Admissions has the potential to completely ruin the aspirations and ambitions of their children.


  • Several Private-Run Medical Institutions across the country are still intimidating to conduct their own counseling for Medical Admissions despite the NEET Ordinance promulgated by the President on May 24.


  • Many parents are threatened that students who have already secured admission in Government Medical Colleges might opt for Private-Run Institutes as per their convenience thereby leaving the seat vacant and destroying the chances for other student.


Meanwhile, Deemed Universities in Maharashtra, adamant to maintain their Deemed status have already planned to approach the court in case they are forced to abide by the State Resolution.
