The Centre has passed an ordinance to defer NEET by a year for state governments and their affiliated institutions for this academic year. The Union Cabinet on May 20, 2016 passed a special order which now overrules the Supreme Court’s judgment which, besides all private medical entrance tests, also replaced state-level medical entrance exams with NEET 2016. However, NEET 2016 would still be applicable for 15% All India quota seats and management quota seats in private and deemed institutions.

The government took the ordinance route to defer NEET after many states raised concerns over different aspects of the single medical entrance exam. This was followed by several round of meetings between Union Health Minister JP Nadda and state health ministers. MPs from many opposition parties including Congress, Trinamool Congress, DMK, AIADMK also urged the government to urgently address the issue and pass an ordinance to overrule the SC decision on NEET. Read the full story here.

Earlier in a meeting with state health ministers and state secretaries held on May 16, the Union Health Minister J P Nadda had noted opinions of different states on implementation of NEET 2016. After the meeting, Nadda had said that the centre favoured a fair examination system and NEET was good for medical aspirants. He, however, had said that language issues in the paper as well as syllabus mismatche raised by many states were a valid concern.

 

In the consultation meeting many lawmakers strongly urged for an ordinance to overrule the SC judgment on replacing all state-level and private medical entrance exam with NEET. Read the full story here.

 

After the final NEET 2016 judgement on May 9 where the SC bench refused to allow any state-level or private medical test except NEET, many opposition parties had raised concerns over its feasibility for students who were preparing for their respective state-level exam based on their state syllabus. Many Parliament members had also said that language barrier in many states may put students from these states at disadvantage in a common test which is only in two languages – Hindi and English.
