New Delhi: After Supreme Court of India declared the State government's domicile condition invalid, Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) of Karnataka government has released the new schedule for NEET PG allotment process today. In an 18-page judgment, the Supreme Court directed Karnataka to amend and modify notification jointly issued by the State Directorate of Medical Education and Karnataka Examinations Authority on March 10, reported The Hindu.
Today, KEA has released a new notification, namely, "Karnataka State Revised Information Bulletin for Centralised Counseling for Post Graduate admissions to Degree/Diploma Medical and Dental Courses" and in the new notification, the controversial 'Karnataka Origin' section has been removed after the court order.
The court ordered the State to re-publish the calendar of events in terms of the judgment and complete the entire process within the timeline stipulated by the regulatory authorities.
