The Supreme Court has sought response from the Karnataka government on a plea challenging its notification to conduct Common Entrance Test for PG courses in all medical institutions.
A bench comprising Justice KG Balakrishnan and Justice PP Naolekar issued notice to the state government on a petition by Karnataka Private Medical College Association challenging the December 21 notification by which it has decided to conduct CET for PG admission to medical, dental and diploma courses through centralised counselling.
It has contended that as per the recent judgement of the apex court, the private unaided colleges could conduct its entrance test free from Government interference.
Senior advocate KK Venugopal appeared for the association and contended that the notification was against the direction of the apex court.
Meanwhile, both the association and state government has come out with the date of their CET on January 29 and February 12.
