NEET 2017: Other state students seek medical seats, HC wants reply

A group of students called the amended rule 4(3) of the Gujarat Professional Medical Educational Courses (Regulation of Admission in UG Courses) Rules a violation of article 14 of the constitution.

The division bench of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice V M Pancholi asked the state government to grant interim relief to students in such cases and consider them as eligible candidates.

"The said rule, if permitted to hold the field, would result in creation of class within the class of students, who otherwise form same class," the petitioners said. One of them added that he had studied for class 10 boards in Bengaluru and class 12 in Gujarat, making him ineligible for a seat in his home state according to the new rule despite a high score in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test.
