With states rising issues regarding implementation of NEET exam for the academic year 2016, Supreme Court may be approached by the health ministry.
Union health minister JP Nadda discussed issues related to implementation of the court's order asking the Centre to conduct National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to any medical college in the country.
While most states are in favour of NEET, some have raised logistics related concerns and sought more time to implement the order, Nadda said.
"Most States are in favour of NEET in- principle. However, some States have expressed that there are some logistic issues that are impeding its implementation, and therefore they have desired for some more time," he said after meeting health ministers from about 18 states.
In many states, the examination process was either underway or was soon to commence for induction to the state government medical colleges. Also, a difference of syllabus OF CBSE being different from what the state boards followed was an important issue. Moreover, the states also pointed out that NEET should be allowed in regional languages in addition to Hindi and English in order to have parity for the students who have taken the state board exams.
