CBSE in a plea to the apex court has demanded to lift the stay given by Madras High Court on May 24 that prevents the publication of NEET 2017 results for MBBS and BDS aspirants throughout the country.

Last month, the Madras High Court had stayed the publication of CBSE NEET results, directing the Medical Council of India, Health Ministry and the board to file counter affidavits.

Another PIL was also filed in the apex court seeking direction to conduct NEET examination again alleging that papers were leaked in Bihar and other states. Almost 12 lakh candidates appeared for the exam.

Hence, the court should vacate the stay and enable students join the course. The Court withdraw the stay order from Madras High Court of Madurai Bench.

Around 10.5 lakh students have given the exam in either Hindi or English while around 1.25 lakh to 1.50 lakh students have appeared in eight vernacular languages.

Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel was in Turkey on Monday in a last attempt to convince Ankara to avert a pullout, but said Turkey had once again refused the visits for "domestic political reasons".

On the direction of the apex court, the NEET was conducted on various languages in the country.

Singh had said that challenge to different sets of questions in vernacular languages was on wrong assumptions that they were hard as the experts had examined that they were different from those in English or Hindi medium but the level of difficulty can not be said to be different. It had said that the question papers had been set - at easy average and tough levels - and they had been moderated by the experts and the issue of one question being tougher than the other did not arise.
