The appeal of central government to conduct National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in six regional languages, i.e. Tamil, Telgu, Marathi, Assamese, Bengali and Gujarati beside Hindi and English can be considered by the SC.
The second phase of NEET is scheduled on July 24.
To do this, an apex court bench comprising Justice Anil R. Dave and Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel will be seeking consultation of Justice Shiva Kirti Singh as Solicitor.
While, Ranjit Kumar sought the court’s clarification as to weather the phase two of NEET could not be held in six languages other than English and Hindi.
Ranjit Kumar told the court that this aspect of Monday's proceedings have not been addressed in the order passed by the court.
Responses have come from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Medical Council of India (MCI).
On one hand, CBSE is anticipating that the translation of question paper into six languages may lead to leakage of question paper while on the other hand; MCI says that NEET should be conducted in English due to unavailability of medical books in any other language other than English.
