CMC Vellore on its website released a public notice after the controversy of One single admission in MBBS and Superspeciality, that too of Central government Nominee Quota due to the prior commitment. The Public notice clarified that the CMC Vellore is not against the concept of NEET but only the central counseling. The Public notice reads as follows;


“Christian Medical College, Vellore has no objection to the NEET qualifying written
examination, subject to the decision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court regarding the
validity of the said exam, which is under challenge. In this background, for the
academic year 2016-17 we accepted NEET as the eligibility exam and admitted 100
NEET qualified students. This year also, candidates who have applied to CMC Vellore
had to qualify the NEET for eligibility. We, however, object to the regulation imposing
common counseling by the central and state appointed committees that was notified in
March 2017. We are very strongly of the view that our counseling of candidates for
selection, that has been in place since 1946 ought not to be disturbed since the common
counseling encroaches upon our right to select candidates who satisfy the criteria, ethos
and objectives for which the Institution has been set up. That apart, the common
counseling also nullifies the fundamental rights conferred on us under Article 30 of the
Constitution of India. Our petition against the common counseling is scheduled to be
heard by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in October 2017. A final decision regarding
admissions for this year will be taken subject to the decision rendered by the Hon’ble
Court and the consequential directions issued. Till such time, the Under Graduate
course will be run with one candidate, nominated by the Government of India admitted
under an agreement, which has been in force for several years. The Higher Specialty
courses will also be conducted with one candidate directed to be admitted by the
Hon’ble Supreme Court in proceedings unrelated to NEET.
