Supreme Court Order :
Earlier, the Supreme Court issued a stay on the Madras High Court’s directive to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to set up additional NEET centres within Tamil Nadu, which sparked massive outrage within the state.
The stay followed CBSE’s move challenging the Madras High Court’s order on April 27 ordering setting up of centres for the Tamil Nadu students who were allocated centres far away from home in Kerala, Karnataka and Rajasthan.
CBSE’s move against the HC order came just a few days before NEET was slated to take place on the May 6. Following this the Supreme Court stayed the High Court order, leaving the students in a fix.
