New Delhi: Apparently, a major blow to hundreds of aspirants to both the general and reserved category as the Supreme Court has rejected a plea for scrapping upper age limit for candidates appearing in National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test of 2018.
According to reports, the top court had on Friday refused to intervene in a batch of petitions seeking to quash a notification fixing the age limit of 30 years for candidates belonging to the reserved category appearing in the NEET Entrance Test of 2018.
The ruling implies that the general category candidates older than 25 years, and those from the reserved category above 30 will not be able to appear in NEET entrance test this year.
The order was passed by the apex court bench of Justices SA Bobde and L Nageswara Rao.
