Tamil Nadu assembly passes bill to make NEET not applicable to the state

Date: 14 September 2021 Tags: Bills & Laws
  • The Tamil Nadu assembly passed a Bill for admissions to undergraduate courses in medicine, dentistry, Indian medicine and homeopathy on the basis of marks obtained by students in Class 12 board examinations.
  • The Bill also provides for 7.5% horizontal reservation for the students of government schools in medical admission.
  • A high-level committee led by Justice A K Rajan, set up by the DMK government in June, reported to the government that NEET had undermined the diverse societal representation in MBBS and higher medical education, favouring the affluent groups.
  • The committee said the NEET did not seem to ensure merit nor standard of the students being offered MBBS under its purview.
