Despite the Supreme Court’s order in March 2018 that Aadhaar card is not mandatory for the NEET registration process, Madras HC yesterday made it compulsory for the candidates to have aadhaar card and its copies if they wish to appear for the medical counseling in Tamil Nadu.
The interim order was passed by Justice N Kirubakaran after petitioners alleged that many students from the other states have been given fraudulent certificates of nativity which will affect the scope of the students from TN to get admission into the course/s.
As a result, the court has directed the authorities in charge of the counseling process to ask the candidates to produce their Aadhaar cards.
Earlier, according to Press Trust of India, a committee of advocates and government officials have informed the court that last year 296 students admitted in the NEET have their native certificated issued without any inquiry or scrutiny.
G Karthikeyan, assistant solicitor general (ASG) has asked for some time to get the details of the person/s who have applied in Tamil Nadu as well as in other states.
The court further said “To confirm that the genuine state candidates are benefited under the state quota, it is appropriate to make the production of Aadhaar card and a photocopy of it compulsory at the time of counseling. By this method, students from other states could be prevented from getting the benefit under the state quota.”
