KERALA: The Kerala High Court dismissed a plea preferred by a group of NEET-PG candidates challenging their allotment of examination centers outside Kerala on short notice. The exam is scheduled to be conducted tomorrow.
Though, Justice P.V. Kunhikrishnan also acknowledged the inconvenience caused to the candidates owing to the same. He said – “It is true that there is an inconvenience to the petitioners because of the sudden notice about the examination centers. But the examination is scheduled for 21.05.2022. All the arrangements were made and about 2,65,000 candidates are appearing for this examination”
Further, he added, On the previous day of the examination, it will not be proper on the part of this Court to postpone the examination or to interfere with the examination centers which are now allotted to the Candidates.
Justice Kunhikrishnan noted that although inconvenient for the petitioners, the Court could not postpone the exam or interfere with the centers on the eve of the exam.
Therefore, finding no merit in the petition, it was dismissed
Advocates C. Dheeraj Rajan and Anand Kalyanakrishnan are the main counsel from the petitioner’s side. They argued that the NEET-PG examination is scheduled for tomorrow but their Admit cards were issued only on 14.05.2022.
