APEX COURT REFUSES TO CANCEL MAHARASHTRA CET EXAMINATION
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to cancel the Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT CET) for admission to engineering courses. A plea was moved by two students demanding that admissions this year be conducted based on their Class 12 examination scores. The order was passed by a bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and R Subhash Reddy. The petitioner represented by advocate Shivaji M Jadhav cited the rising number of Covid-19 cases in Maharashtra to claim that holding the examinations posed a risk to students.
