NEET 2017 Notification

Reason for NEET Notification Delay:
Every year NEET application releases in the first week of December. But this year it is being delayed. Language barrier must be a reason for that. As per CBSE, NEET 2017 exam will be held in 8 different languages like Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Marathi, Assamese and Bengali. Candidates belonging to these territories are demanding the NEET syllabus and other study material in their prescribed language. Due to unavailability of syllabus and other stuff in these languages, CBSE is considering this matter seriously and taking time for that. CBSE is about to decide this issue shortly for providing the application form notification.
