The government on Monday accepted that the Supreme Court order on common all-India medical entrance test has created “practical problems” and asserted that it will take a final call on the matter after a comprehensive study.
“There is a problem with states having examinations in their regional language as NEET is in Hindi and English only. So there are practical problems as the pre-medical examination has been converted by the court order,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said in the Lok Sabha.
He was responding to the members’ concerns over the court verdict. The matter was raised in Zero Hour, Congress member Rajiv Satav held the union government responsible for the situation, saying that the court order has affected 80 percent students of Maharashtra, mostly from the rural areas.
Responding to the charge, Naidu said: “It’s not proper to hold the government responsible for it.” He said he will discuss the issue with the health minister.
“Keeping all the things in mind, the government will have a comprehensive study of the concerned matter and take a final call after discussing it with the law officer,” Naidu said.
