Thalka News Bureau
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday will hear the plea filed by he Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) against the stay on results of the National legibility and Entrance Test (NEET). Earlier, the CBSE had moved the apex court, seeking its intervention in the matter and initiating its transfer from the Madras and Gujarat High Court to the apex court.
On May 24, the Madras High Court stayed the publication of the NEET results as a petitioner filed a plea saying the vernacular questioner for NEET 2017 for admission to MBBS and BDS courses were easier than the papers in English. In its counter affidavit, the CBSE rejected the contention that question papers in vernacular languages such as Gujarati were easier compared to English.
CBSE insisted that the stay of publication of results would jeopardize the interests of lakhs of students. The publication of results are already late it should not be delayed any further.
Hence the court should vacate the stay and enable students t o join the course.
Almost 12 lakh students have appeared for the NEET exams in various languages, including English, Hindi and others. NEET was made available in many on the direction of the apex court.
