Ahmedabad: The Gujarat government on Friday said the Centre had given its approval for conducting the 2017 NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for medical admissions in Gujarati in the state, along with English.

"Due to numerous representations of parents, the state government had urged the Union Health Ministry to conduct NEET in Gujarati," Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said.

"Union Health Minister J P Nadda in a letter to Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has informed that Health Ministry will conduct NEET 2017 in Gujarati language in our state," he said.

The Supreme Court has made NEET mandatory for medical admissions.

Parents of students, who want to appear for NEET next year, were pressing the government to conduct the exam in Gujarati for the benefit of Gujarati-medium students.

They had also staged protests in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar on the issue.
