Government gave a go ahead to TN NEET ordinance

The Union government has forwarded the ordinance to President, proposing one year exemption from NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) in the government medical colleges across the state. The ordinance must be promulgated before August 30 by the Tamil Nadu Governor.

The decision is being opposed by many students in the state and a batch of students has filed a petition in the Supreme Court (SC). They have asked SC to direct the Tamil Nadu government to start counselling for MBBS courses solely based on NEET marks.

Students opposing the government move argued:

• The State government move to exempt Tamil Nadu from NEET this year was merely a political bargaining chip, which would affect the lives and careers of students.

• The state government is trying to change the criteria for admission to MBBS seats in government medical colleges and government quota seats in self-financing colleges in Tamil Nadu from NEET-based to Plus 2 marks.

• This is in violation of the Supreme Court s earlier judgement and Section 10 D of the Medical Council of India Act which says admission should be based on NEET marks.

• The CBSE board students cannot compete with the State board students if Plus Two marks are taken as the criteria for selection to MBBS course.

The students are apprehensive regarding the State government move, as it would further delay the first round of State counselling for filling up the MBBS seats in the “hope of getting Presidential assent for the ordinance”.
