The apex court had also asked High Courts not to entertain petitions on NEET 2017 exams. The exams were held on May 7.
"For now, we are happy that the Supreme Court has stayed Madras HC's order because the government doctors working in rural areas have received 10, 20 and 30 per cent incentive. This time, we are accepting it and are satisfied that the merit list won't be changed. But next year, the state government must provide 50 per cent quota to government doctors," Ramalingam, state organising secretary, Service Doctors and Post Graduates Association.
The idea of NEET has been contested since its inception by various state governments including the Tamil Nadu government.
Late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalithaa had strongly objected
to the single national-level examination for medical courses citing that it would put rural students at a disadvantage because they lack resources to stand on an equal playing field as their economically advantaged peers.
The TN government also claimed that it would overlap with the state's autonomy and right to regulate the admission policies to medical educational institutions.
CM Edappadi K Palaniswami had earlier urged
Prime Minister Narendra Modi to approve the state's Bills seeking exemption from National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for state government seat quota.
States of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Kerala, Union Territory of Puducherry and the Karnataka Private Medical Colleges Association had earlier filed applications in the Supreme Court opposing the unified entrance exam
