NEET Common Medical Entrance TestThe Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to include Bengali, along with three other vernacular languages, Tamil, Telugu and Gujarati apart from English and Hindi, in which the question papers of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) will be set. The NEET was proposed to be one single entrance test for MBBS courses across the country, which was to be conducted from 2011 and later it was postponed to 2012. But the plans were shelved again by MCI as a number of states, including West Bengal, Tamil Nadu , Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh, had voiced dissent against the idea of framing question papers in English and Hindi.

The decision of including the vernacular languages was taken by the Medical Council of India (MCI) at a meeting held in New Delhi on Thursday, 23 August 2012. It was attended by the representatives of medical education departments of various states and the MCI officials. Sources at the health department said that a formal announcement would be made in this regard soon.
