“The Applicant, who has been admitted to Motilal Nehru College, Prayagraj and has completed three years of her MBBS studies, should not be prevented from continuing the course, at this stage… Pending further orders, no adverse measures will will be taken against the petitioner on the basis of the contested judgment of the High Court,” the Supreme Court said in its order.

The MBBS student applied to the Supreme Court for a May 13 order from the Allahabad High Court, requesting that her admission to the medical course not be revoked on the grounds that she did not possess a “C” certificate at NCC review.
The High Court had also refused to accept the argument that students with a ‘B’ certificate in the NCC exam would be included in admissions by providing for a horizontal reserve of 1% in the NEET-UG council. The High Court had said it could not include any qualification by ‘judicial authorisation’ as that is the same for the rule-making authorities.
The Supreme Court took notice of the student’s appeal against the High Court order, granted her the interim relief and set July 15 as the next hearing date after giving notices to the authorities.
“On June 26, 2019, the applicant had expressly stated in her communication to the authorities that she held an NCC ‘B’ certificate (which did not make her eligible to obtain a reserved seat) and, therefore, had requested that her registration to the NCC quota may be withdrawn…,” the Supreme Court noted in its order. While granting the interim measure, he said that in fact the records indicated that the MBBS student was presented as a “clean candidate without any sub-categories”.
