New Delhi: The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) result 2017 has been declared by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The result was declared at 10:43am on Friday on official website - www.cbseneet.nic.in for the result.
“Result of NEET (UG) - 2017 has been declared as per the directives of Hon'ble Supreme Court of India. Good Wishes to all candidates from CBSE,” a declaration on the official website said on Friday morning.
Navdeep Singh from Punjab topped NEET exam with 99.99 percentile, he has scored 697 marks.
The CBSE had set in motion the process for declaring the result of NEET 2017 after the Supreme Court gave a go-ahead to the board. The apex court stayed a May 24 interim order of the Madras High Court, which had restrained the CBSE from publishing the result of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2017.
In staying the Madras HC order, the Supreme Court had paved the way for the declaration of results of the exam taken by around 12 lakh students aspiring to join medical and dental colleges across the country.
The top court said it was inclined to grant a stay on the high court's order which was indirectly "diluting" the schedule for NEET 2017 earlier fixed by the apex court.
