A division bench of the Hyderabad High Court stayed the counselling of NEET SS (Super Speciality) for admission into super speciality courses (DM/MCh) in the medical colleges of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. While hearing the petition of Dr B Satish Kumar and 12 other Justice V Ramasubramanian and Justice T Rajani was passing these interim orders challenging a letter issued by the Centre directing both the varsities to conduct a common counselling for all the seats of NEET-Super Speciality-2017 at the national level.
Petitioners counsel Satyam Reddy cited that admission to professional courses in the states of Telangana & Andhra Pradesh are governed by Article 371-D of the Constitution hence the central government is not authorised to conduct a common counselling at the national level. Further, the court directed the Centre to file a counter affidavit and posted the case for August 24.
Meanwhile, Students who were unaware of the situation and travelled to respective colleges for admission are sent back. Later MCC issued a Public notice
