In a letter written to the Centre, Maharashtra State Minister of Medical Education, Girish Dattatray Mahajan said that around 168 Urdu medium science junior colleges are running in the state, accounting for around 11, 000 students appearing for class XII exam every year. He further mentioned that with such considerations, NEET must be conducted in Urdu as well. “Considering the large number of students from Urdu-medium appearing in NEET, it is necessary that the test be conducted in Urdu language too. We request the government to make appropriate changes to the present rules,” the minister was quoted as saying to a National Daily.
