It was on the Union Health Ministry to take the final call on whether to hold NEET UG in 2012 or to defer it by a year or so. Reports indicated that Health Ministry is not in a position to hold the much talked common medical entrance test (NEET UG) next year; accordingly Union Health Ministry has written to the apex court to shift the debuting date of NEET UG to 2013.
In July the apex court waved green signal to the Medical Council of India (MCI) to take the control of medical admissions in the country by conducting a common medical entrance test. Since then MCI has been cornered as states such as (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu & others) were inconvenient with the syllabus & vernacular languages (MCI said NEET UG will only be in English & Hindi).
The other states like Gujarat, Maharashtra too raised objections on the language issue and now it is health ministry who is feeling the heat; as the time is insufficient to make arrangements to hold NEET UG in 2012. It is practically not so easy to impose on the objecting states; as these opposing states are approaching their respective high courts and securing a temporary stay.
What do you think? Should NEET UG be putoff till 2013? Leave your thoughts!
