NEET 2013 Exam Faces UncertaintyNEET Aspirants are facing a state of uncertainty since the time two students have approached the High Court of Bombay, Nagpur Bench, whereas the HC has granted time to the respondents till December 13 to file a reply.

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is the central government conducted exam which will replace all other common entrance tests for admissions to under graduate medical colleges. The petitioners have pleaded before the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court that the state board (in Maharashtra) syllabus is still not at par, thus putting them at a disadvantage.

A division bench comprising justices Bhushan Gavai and Sunil Deshmukh issued notices to the respondents, including Medical Council of India (MCI), State Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) and state secretary for Department of Medical Education and Drugs. They were asked to file a reply before December 13, which was fixed as next date of hearing.

The directorate of medical education and research chief Pravin Shinghare said there are no changes yet. “I am not aware of the development in Nagpur court. Hence, as of now I have to say that NEET shall be held in 2013. But, ultimately, we will follow whatever the court orders us to do,” he said.

“Prima facie we find that the policy of holding NEET can’t be flouted. However, prior to doing that we are of the view that it will be necessary that the syllabus for entire country is common and the students should be put on same level before they appeared in the test,” the judges observed, while issuing the notices to the respondents.
