Christian medical college v. UOI
2:1 judgment against NEET, in which Justice Kabir was in the majority, has invited a huge controversy. It appears that the judgment was leaked, before it was delivered, with a contributor to the Bar and Bench predicting the ratio of the judgment a few hours before its delivery. Also, the dissenting Judge has apparently recorded his displeasure that time was insufficient to facilitate proper discussion among the Judges. All these have led to the demand that the Court should review this judgment, and if it fails, the Government should restore NEET. Today’s Hindu carries an edit, as well as an article on the issue on the oped page.
