Upset by the Medical Council of India’s (MCI) plan to hold the national eligibility-cum-entrance test (NEET) for the MBBS course from 2012, city-based non-governmental organisation (NGO), District Entrance Examination Performance Enhancement and Research (Deeper) has moved public interest litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court against it.
The NGO is of the view that medical college aspirants from Maharashtra could face difficulties in NEET 2012 as there is a mismatch in the syllabus followed for NEET and syllabus of the state board. In its PIL, filed through advocate Asim Sarode, founder secretary of Deeper, Harish Butle, prayed that considering the mismatch between the syllabi, NEET should not to be conducted in 2012. Butle said, "The motive of the single national common entrance test is demanded for medical and engineering seats with total transparency and the notification to that effect should be published without any ambiguity well in advance, after taking into consideration views of students and parents." However, educationists in Pune and Kolhapur had expressed concern over the mismatch in the two syllabi. As per the earlier plan, NEET was to be introduced in 2013 and the state board altered its syllabus for mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology for standard XI this year to prepare their students for the 2013 exam. The syllabus for standard XII was to be altered next year. Butle said, "NEET will be held for admission to the MBBS course across the country, which was earlier done by MHT-CET for the state. However the state government is not yet clear about admissions to other medical courses like ayurvedic medicine and surgery or nursing." He said it was not clear whether the state entrance test, MHT-CET, would be conducted and the MCI is yet to publish the notification for NEET 2012. "There are ambiguities on whether there will negative marking, what will be the position of the state quota, or whether there will be nationwide admission process," Butle said.
