Supreme Court approached to hold NEET Phase 2 in six regional languages
Tuesday May 10, 2016 12:58 PM, Agencies

New Delhi:
The Supreme Court may consider the central government's plea to hold the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) in Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Assamese, Bengali and Gujarati, besides English and Hindi.

An apex court bench comprising Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said they will consult Justice Shiva Kirti Singh as Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar sought the court's clarification as to whether the phase two of NEET could not be held in six languages other than English and Hindi.

The phase two of NEET for admission to medical courses is scheduled on July 24.

Ranjit Kumar mentioned the matter, The bench said: "We have left it to you," on Tuesday.

Ranjit Kumar told the court that this aspect of Monday's proceedings have not been addressed in the order passed by the court.

On Monday, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had expressed the apprehension that getting the question paper translated into six languages other than English and Hindi could result in its leakage.

Even the Medical Council of India (MCI) had said that eventually the NEET should be conducted in English only as medical books are not available in any language other than English.

Meanwhile, confusion prevails on whether the states can run their own Common Entrance Test (CET) or not as the Supreme Court is yet to pass a verdict.

Earlier, the SC while announcing a single National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to medical courses had allowed the states to conduct their own CETs as per the announced schedule.

Accordingly, Maharashtra conducted MHT CET 2016 on May 5 and Karnataka conducted KCET 2016 on May 4 and 5. Similarly, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states too conducted AP EAMCET 2016 on April 29.

The AP EAMCET 2016 result was supposed to be declared on today i.e. May 10. But, in the wake of pending SC verdict, only AP EAMCET 2016 Engineering results are declared today. EAMCET 2016 Medical results are kept on hold.
