The Supreme Court on Wednesday sought Centre’s response in a petition filed by the BDS aspirants challenging the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare's notice of refusal to lower the percentile for qualification of NEET BDS Course for the academic session 2021-2022.

The bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, Sanjiv Khanna and Surya Kant while issuing notice in the plea asked the Centre to file a counter affidavit specifying the same. The percentile was reduced by DCI.

Accordingly, while issuing notice in the plea the bench said, 'We will ask them to place full data of the total vacant seats; how many seats are in private universities. Students don't want to go to these deemed universities with the kind of fees etc. We'll ask them to file a reply..

Against this backdrop petitioners, it is further sought for consequently directing the competent authorities to conduct Mop Up round of counselling for the vacant seats after publishing of revised qualifying cut off percentile. 

The Supreme Court bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli issued the direction considering the fact that last date for BDS admissions have been extended to May 15(from April 11) and that the Executive Committee of the Dental Council of India (DCI), in its meeting held on April 6, recommended the Centre to reduce the qualifying percentile.
