The Bombay High Court on Friday took on record the State's undertaking to permit an applicant for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) to take the examination in her vernacular Urdu (Muskan and Anr. v. Union of India and Ors).

The applicant had applied to take the NEET in Urdu. Pursuant to the State's undertaking, the Bench of Justices RK Deshpande and Pushpa V Ganediwala noted that nothing survived for adjudication.

The State submitted that the applicant would be allowed to write the exam in Urdu, and would also be provided with a question paper in Urdu.

Therefore, the petition was disposed of, with the Court declaring that the State was bound by its undertaking before the Bench.

NEET is scheduled to be conducted on Sunday, September 12, 2020. Over 15 Lakh students are slated to take the exam.

Advocate KV Deshmukh represented the petitioner while ASG U Aurangabadkar and Advocate Pruthviraj Chavhan appeared for the respondents.
