The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Medical Council of India to respond to a batch of applications by various state governments and associations of private medical colleges seeking to hold their own separate examinations for admission to undergraduate medical courses.

At Court No 3 before noon today, the going was tough for the special leave petitions (SLPs), in direct proportion to the persistence of the counsel with their pleas.

The Supreme Court on Saturday refused to give more time to taxi operators in the National Capital Region (NCR) to switch from diesel to the cleaner compressed natural gas (CNG).

The deadline for the change, which has been extended twice, is Saturday.

A number of cab operators and their associations urged the court for an extension of the deadline, but a bench comprising Chief Justice TS Thakur, Justice AK Sikri and Justice R Banumati refused the request.

The apex court had initially asked the diesel cab operators in the NCR to switch over to CNG by 1 March. That deadline was later extended to 31 March and then to 30 April.

The matter related to steps to be taken to curb alarming increase in air pollution in the national capital.
