SC refuses to entertain SIO plea to add Urdu in NEET exam
New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to hear the matter filed by Students Islamic Organisation of India to add Urdu as a language to National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) examination.
Earlier on 17 February, Student Islamic Organization (SIO) has filed a petition in Supreme Court against CBSE, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for its decision of not including Urdu as one of the languages in NEET 2017 exam which is to be conducted in the month of May.
The organization said that the decision to not include Urdu is unjustified and biased toward students who complete their higher secondary and senior secondary education in Urdu medium.
The Ministry has so far added 10 different languages to the list in which NEET exam will be conducted this year.
