Citing the Supreme Court refusal to exempt Tamil Nadu from NEET, Christian Medical College (CMC) Vellore, a premium institution, has suspended admissions to its undergraduate and super speciality course for the 2017-18 batch, as reported by The Hindu. As a direct outcome of this decision to suspend admissions, 99 undergraduate course seats and 61 super speciality course seats will go vacant. The undergraduate course will be run with only 1 student, the son of a martyr, as a Central Govt nominee.

Mr Krishna Srinivasan, senior lawyer representing CMC,  said, “We have challenged the Regulations prescribing common counselling for both UG and PG courses in the Supreme Court, in which we have also filed two interlocutory petitions, one for under graduate admissions, and another for admission to super specialities. In October, the Court will decide the validity of our plea to make our own admissions.”

Thomas Samuel Ram, CMC Council secretary, said, “We want to run the course, but our hands are tied. Ours is a system that has been recognised and even commended by several judgements as fair and non-exploitative. The fees (?3000 per annum) is heavily subsidised by patient care.”
