NEET UG 2022: Admission in B.Sc Nursing will be done through NEET UG only. The High Court dismissed the petition challenging the admission of NAT to B.Sc Nursing course through NEET.
Appeal challenging the notification issued by National Testing Agency (NTA) for admission to BSc Nursing course through NEET UG 2022 in the current academic session. The appeal also challenged the High Court’s single bench order upholding the notification issued by NTA for admission to B.Sc Nursing course through NEET-UG.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Sachin Dutta observed that the case of the appellants is not different from the case of Saloni Yadav which was decided earlier. In Saloni Yadav’s case, the High Court had held that there was no lacuna in the notification issued by the NTA making it mandatory to clear the NEET-UG exam for admission to nursing courses. The High Court has observed that the petitioner wants to take admission in the Military Nursing Service course, merely on the ground that it would not be appropriate to interfere with the decision issued by the NTA. The bench also said that the case of the petitioner is, therefore, not different from the case decided earlier. Simultaneously, the High Court dismissed the petition filed by Chhavi and others. Earlier, the single bench, while considering the petition of this Saloni Yadav, refused to interfere in the matter.
Mere passing of neet will not give admission in nursing
Before a single bench, the government and the NTA had said that clearing NEET-UG will not only entitle students to B.Sc Nursing but also undergo Computer Based Test (CBT) of English and General Knowledge and Psychological Assessment Test (PAT). Giving this information in the court, the government and the NTA had said that a circular will be issued in this regard soon. PAT will be a kind of interview.
It was said in the petition – preparation will be ruined by changing the pattern of admission
After this, before Justice Rekha Palli, advocate Alok Singh, on behalf of the government and NTA, gave this information as baseless on the arguments of the petitioners, which claimed that admission in B.Sc Nursing course is computer based general English and general knowledge and science. But it is happening. It was also claimed that students have prepared English and general knowledge accordingly, but changing the pattern of admission will ruin their preparation.
Advocate Singh said that the preparation of students will not prove to be in vain as admission in B.Sc Nursing will not be done only by the result of NEET-UG but through the merit list prepared on the basis of marks obtained in computer based test of English and general knowledge and psychological assessment test. Will happen.
The advocate said that the respondent (Government/NTA) is in the process of issuing a detailed circular in this regard. This circular will not only be published in all national newspapers but will also be uploaded on the portal. After hearing these arguments, the single bench dismissed the petition challenging the provision of admission to B.Sc Nursing course through NEET-UG. The court said that it is clear from the facts that the preparation of English and general knowledge by the students will not go in vain. The court said that the examination will be held on July 17, so students have enough time to prepare. In the High Court, Saloni Yadav and others had sought quashing of the decision of the National Examination Agency to make admission in B.Sc Nursing through NEET-UG from the academic session 2022-23
