NEET Result 2017 controversy
This year’s NEET result landed in a controversy when separate petitions were filed at the Madras and Gujarat High Courts where medical aspirants demanded cancellation of NEET 2017 as the Gujarati and Tamil medium paper were allegedly tougher than the English and Hindi medium. Reacting to this, the Madras High Court decided to put a stay on proceedings on May 24 but on June 12, the Supreme Court overruled the Madras High Court order and directed the Central Board of Secondary Education to announce NEET 2017 result by June 26.
