None, 02 Jan 2017, #NEET

The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) has written a letter to HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar to include Kannada as one of the regional languages for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017.

The KDA Chairman Prof S G Siddaramaiah said that he has highlighted the fact in his letter that NEET is being conducted in six other languages apart from Hindi and English and not in Kannada. “Our state is home to highest number of medical colleges and 70% of children in Karnataka take their SSLC exam in Kannada itself. I will ensure NEET will be held in Kannada as well,” the chairman was quoted as saying to a National Daily.
