NEET 2018: CBSE told to answer four questions

By: Sakshi Awasthi on July 03, 2018

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been directed by the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court to reply to four questions presented by it. The initiative has been taken to ensure a fair competition for the NEET 2018 candidates of Tamil Nadu.

The Madurai Bench of Justices C T Selvam and A M Basheer Ahamed asked the board about how it translated the technical and scientific words from English to Tamil. The court also wanted to know whether there was a compilation of words translated from English to Tamil and also if the words were translated then were they brought to the notice of teachers and students.

The board also questioned the board whether any step had been taken to educate Tamil medium students that the technical and scientific terms such as the name of the human body parts, plants etc. have an equivalent Tamil word also.

The CBSE is required to answer the above four questions by way of affidavits on the next hearing which is scheduled for July 6, 2018.

The bench has further refused to accept the petitioner's request demanding stay on the ongoing All India and State medical counselling. The judges said that they don't want to pass any order as the counselling has already been scheduled by the board. The judges further added that they will wait for CBSE's reply to their questions.

Earlier a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed before the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court by the Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) T.K. Rangarajan claiming additional marks to the Tamil medium NEET candidates. He claimed that nearly 49 questions in the NEET question paper were wrongly translated, which confused the students. He is seeking a grant of 196 marks for the wrongly translated questions.

The NEET 2018 examination was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on May 6, 2018. The examination is conducted to provide admissions to MBBS and BDS courses offered by the Government & Private Medical and Dental colleges across India.
