Common Medical Entrance Test

The Medical Council of India (MCI) has notified amendment in its regulations to conduct common entrance test viz. National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) medical courses in the country from 2013-14. Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been identified as the agency for conducting NEET for UG and National Board of Examinations (NBE) for PG medical courses.

Majority of States have accepted the proposal but few States have expressed apprehensions about the proposed NEET which pertained to syllabus, medium of test, reservation policy, etc. Most of the apprehensions have been addressed. The MCI’s regulations on NEET clearly indicate that the prevailing reservation policy of States would not be disturbed. Further, the NEET-UG will be conducted in six regional languages viz. Gujarati, Bengali, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu and Assamese in addition to Hindi and English. Few medical colleges and State Governments have filed writ petitions in respective Hon’ble High Courts seeking exemption from NEET. More than 26 such writ petitions have been transferred to the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and the matter is sub-judice and any exclusion would depend upon the decision of Hon’ble Supreme Court in the pending transfer petitions.

This information was given by the Minister for Health & Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
