They prayed for issuance of several directions including appointment of a High-Powered Committee to examine the complaint regarding the tampering of the OMR sheets. They also challenged the prescribed procedure for challenging the answer key and OMR sheets and for quashing the NEET results. They contended that the errors and absurdities render the NEET examination unequal discriminatory and arbitrary and hence violative of Articles 14 and 15 of the Constitution.”More than 15 lakh students have taken the undergraduate examination for the academic year 2020-2021 and even the second round of counselling has been completed. The grievances of individual students cannot be addressed by us in a petition filed under Article 32 of the Constitution of India.”, the bench comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ajay Rastogi said. Any further grievance of the petitioners relating to the procedure prescribed for challenging the answer key and the OMR sheets can be raised by filing a Writ Petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, the bench added.Case: MUSKAN SABHARWAL vs. NATIONAL TESTING AGENCYCoram: Justices L.

She and her live-in boyfriend had been exploring the notion, but with the median home price in Los Angeles exceeding $500,000.00, it is completely out of reach for them. Between juggling school loan payoffs and each working in the freelance world of entertainment, saving for a down payment and/or qualifying for a mortgage, in this day and age, is tough.  Unlike we baby boomers, the proverbial American Dream of a house for every family with a chicken in every pot feels more fantasy than an inalienable right.Over the last 20 plus years I have watched as the cost of living in the U.S., and more specifically Los Angeles, steadily climbed. It became apparent, without a doubt, that if my daughters (I have two) were going to have a home, it would be up to mom to help them. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
