According to One India, the CBSE made the statement during a hearing in the Madras High Court.

The official announcement of the release date of CBSE NEET 2017 will be declared soon and the students are asked to stay calm until the declaration of the results. Recently new petition has been filed seeking that this NEET exam held for admission to MBBS and BDS of the academic year 2017-18 to be cancelled by the Government.

The court also directed Union health and family welfare secretary, DG health services, Medical Council of India (MCI), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Government of Tamil Nadu to reply by June 7.

The CBSE on Tuesday said it was preparing to challenge in the Supreme Court the order of the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court granting interim stay on publication of NEET results across the country, which would apply to Gujarat as well. The permissible limit is already crossed and even though the court vacated the stay the Board still needs about 15 days to declare the results of CBSE NEET 2017. Then, students must fill the online options of the colleges, and the allotment of seats will take place on the merit basis. The stay order is going to cause further delay in the admission process. Now, a fresh writ petition has been filed in the Madras High Court to cancel the entrance examination which was held on May 7. It would create unrest among the stakeholders.

NEET 2017 was conducted in 10 languages and different languages had different sets of question papers. However, CBSE denied these allegations and said that the question papers had been moderated by experts.

Also, the question papers were different in Vernacular languages and in English. From four sets translated in vernacular languages, three sets were randomly picked for printing.

In case there is a leak in vernacular language papers, it will be easy for them to conduct examinations again as only 8-10 per cent candidates will be affected while a majority of students who appeared for English medium test will remain unaffected.

"CBSE tried to justify its stand and contended that there is no discrimination in the question paper, but the judges mentioned that there should have been only one paper in the examination", further pointed out Patel.
