NEET-UG 2012 Notification is expected to be announced any day, at least five states saying they are not ready for participation in it, reports IBN LIVE
While Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have already obtained a stay from the court, Maharashtra has now moved the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the plea of differences in syllabi. West Bengal and Gujarat have not yet indicated their affirmation to join the test. Sources say if the big five states are left out of the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET), a majority of the medical colleges across the country would be out of NEET purview, as almost 50 to 60 per cent of the medical colleges in the country are concentrated in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka alone.
The Medical Council of India (MCI) has already finalised the syllabus for National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET-UG) for admission to MBBS courses and fixed May 13 for holding the exam next year. Earlier during discussions with various states, Gujarat, Karnataka and West Bengal had demanded the holding of the proposed NEET in vernacular languages, which is now ruled out owing to shortage of time in holding the exam.
