    Sub – Regional Languages will abolish in near future if same weightage is not given to all the Regional Languages in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) as that of Hindi.
    Respected Sir,

    With due respect and humble submission I like to draw your kind attention regarding aforesaid subject in the following

    The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to undergraduate MBBS & BDS course is under the Indian Medical Council Amendment Act, 2016 dated 05-05-2016.

    On December 09, 2016 Smt. Anupriya Patel, the Minister of State (Health and Family Welfare), stated in a written reply in the Lok Sabha “ ….the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 will be held in Hindi, English, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu. No criteria is fixed for rural students under the All India Quota seats….”

    As per the written reply in the Lok Sabha it implies that the students who will appear the NEET in given 6 Regional Languages, will not be eligible for All India seats. The All India seats include 15% reserved seats for AIPMT(4000 seats), Central Govt. patronised colleges like Vardhman Mahavir Medical College New Delhi, Armed forces Medical College Pune, Aligarh Muslim University Aligarh, Banaras Hindu University, Banaras etc (500 seats), private medical colleges (24500 seats) and private dental colleges (5000 seats). In short, students opting the NEET in all 6 Regional Languages will not be able to compete in 34000 seat (approx.) whereas those who will appear the exam in Hindi will be eligible for admission to all these seats along with their state quota seats. Hindi is not our national language. Hindi is a regional language of some states of India.
    In medical curriculum, the medium of instruction is English and nowhere Hindi is used as a medium in India. There is not a single medical book in Hindi. English is the only medium of medical education in India.
    In No VIII schedule of Indian Constitution 22 regional languages are placed along with Hindi and there is mentioned that importance should be given in improvement of all these regional languages.
    Students appearing NEET exam in Hindi will get more advantage than students appearing NEET in any of the 6 regional languages. In last 30 years, regional students were enjoying the AIPMT and others Govt. & Private medical & dental college admission tests in separate schedule as per their choice apart from their own state entrance exam. Only the regional language students are being deprived of this right due to NEET, but not the Hindi/English medium students. This is a gross disparity and hampers the equal rights of the students in a same exam in same country. This also goes against Article 14 of Indian Constitution.
    In the year 2013, NEET was conducted for the first time. Then also NEET was held in Hindi, English along with all 6 same regional languages. In the Information Bulletin of NEET – 2013, it was clearly mentioned that regional language opted candidates could not be able to compete for All India seats other than their state quota seats. Even the regional language medium students were not allowed to fill up Application for All India seats. In NEET 2013 Information Bulletin it was mentioned even if the highest scorer in NEET exam is from regional language, he/she will not be allowed for All India seats. Hindi regional language students had got more advantage for admission to the All India seats.

    In NEET 2013, it was also mentioned that in case of any ambiguity in translation of any of the questions in regional language, it’s English version shall be treated as final. Its means at every time students have to check the correctness of regional language version question by going through English version questions. It is time consuming. Time duration of NEET is 3 hours. If a student knows all questions better, it is difficult to answer the full paper of NEET within 3 hours time. A student is choosing regional language because he/she is not confident the science subjects in English. Thus it is quite impossible for a regional language opted student to finish the exam in time. In such a competitive exam like NEET, it is found that among the good scorers about 200 candidates scores same marks and the number of overlapping candidates gradually increases as much as 500 students in same score. Thus slight loss of time during exam, may be disastrous. Whereas Hindi version Question if there is any ambiguity, the CBSE board will take sole responsibility, students have not to compare the Hindi question with English version. This is injustice and discriminatory.
    If CBSE board is unable to conduct such a vast and important examination, the charge may be distributed alternatively to any other efficient authority.
    In previous NEET exam it was also mentioned that candidates opting for Question Paper in Regional languages should choose Centre within the geographical limit of the State concerned. As example, a Bengali medium student of Delhi resident will have to appear NEET in West Bengal centre only.
    In future the guardians who dream their wards to be a doctor, Engineer, Lawyer etc, they have to admit or shift their wards in a English Medium school. So Regional Language schools will not get good quality students. The school’s door will shut due to scarcity of students. Beside the reputed Regional Language holding schools, private English medium schools will sprout. The poor people will be compelled to send their wards in costly English medium school by using their last resource.
    Hindi is not the Indian constitution granted national language, it is only used by the central govt. Hindi is also a regional language. But Hindi is getting undue advantage. Hindi language opting students in NEET will be able to compete for 100% medical/dental seats. In this year like medical/dental admissions, there will be also a nationwide single entrance for homeopathy, Ayurveda, Unani medicine etc. It seems that in future all entrances will be nationwide through a single entrance exam. Medical-Engg, IIT, law, veterinary etc all entrances will be in English and Hindi.
    Previously, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) exams were taken in 8 languages including Bengali. But last few years the exam is taken only in English and Hindi. 15% of all India pre medical/ pre dental (AIPMT/PD) exams were also taken in English and Hindi only. All India Engineering (AIEEE/JEE main) are also taken in English and Hindi. In the new act it is mentioned that students are allowed to give exam in Regional languages but not mentioned that Regional languages are mandatory for NEET exam. Thus it may happen that like IIT, NEET can also stop taking exams in Regional languages. In that case nothing can be done.
    There are many good Regional Language medium schools throughout the country. From all these school, many students in every year are getting chances in AIPMT/15% all India quota seats, AIIMs, JIPMER, BHU and other renowned medical college seats. The Supreme Court (SC) of India repeatedly emphasized that merit of a student should be given priority in competitive exams. Previously Regional language holding students could appear the all India seats as per their own choice. But NEET is violating SC directions. It is against natural justice and against equality, as promised in our Constitution. It is against the interest of national unity.
    All over India, number of 10+2 examination board is thirty six. Among these many are state boards and they follow their curriculum in regional languages. NEET has granted only 6 regional languages depriving the other regional languages. This is unethical, injustice and illegal. All the regional languages will be in crisis, though the Indian constitution stated that measures should be taken to uphold the Regional languages.
    Sir, my earnest appeal before you is to consider the gravity of the matter, conduct the NEET in all provincial languages and students appearing the NEET must be given equal rights and opportunity like Hindi and English. If necessary the regional Medical Entrance Boards may be helpful in this endeavour.

    Hope, your good office will take necessary action for the benefits of the majority of the students, guardians and people of India.
    With best regards,
    Yours sincerely,
    (Dr. Priyanka Maity)
