NEET 2016 Ordinance – Key Highlights:

  1. The purpose of the Ordinances is to provide a firm statutory status to the concept of Uniform Entrance Examination for all undergraduate and post graduate admissions in Medical/Dental Colleges while providing a relaxation to the State Governments in relation to only UG admissions for this year (2016-17) in view of their difficulties

  2. Necessity of promulgating the Ordinances arose since the Supreme Court is in vacation presently and both Houses of the Parliament had adjourned sine-die by May 13, 2016

  3. NEET is being implemented from the current year itself for all UG admissions in all private and deemed institutions

  4. The exemption to the State Governments from NEET is only for a current academic year

  5. The State Government seats (both in Govt. and Private Medical Colleges) shall be exempt from the purview of NEET regulations if the State Government so opts

  6. Only State Government seats in Government Medical Colleges and State Government seats in private institutions will have exemption (if the state Government concerned so opts) from NEET for the current year

  7. Management quota seats shall be filled by the respective private colleges/associations of colleges and/or private universities/deemed universities through the NEET UG-2016 examination only, in all the States even for 2016 admission year

  8. Centre is principally in favour of holding NEET, it would be prudent and in the larger interest of lakhs of students to allow the State Governments to continue with their existing procedures for filling up of UG seats for 2016-17 in respect to State Government seats

  9. The first phase has been conducted on May 1, 2016, and the second phase shall be held on July 24, 2016

  10. For PG examination in December 2016 for next academic year admissions, NEET will fully apply without any exemption

Can i join agbsc collage by writing NEET only ??And what are the cut off marks for it???

Arya 18th Nov, 2019

Hi Anita,

For a B.Sc. in Agriculture, you do not need to write NEET. The admission to this course, which basically focuses on agricultural sciences, is decided on the  basis of the candidates' score in AIEEA which is conducted by  the  Indian Council of Agriculture. For eligibility to this examination, one should have passed 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Mathematics as the compulsory subjects. Some of the best colleges for Agriculture in India are:

  • Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana
  • Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbature
  • Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar

This is a four-year course and the average salary of a B.Sc. Agriculture degree holder is Rs. 6.74 LPA.

My parents are from Kerala working in UP. I am born and brought up in UP, studied xth and xiith in UP and have birth certificate from UP. is a domicile certificate needed to apply neet 85% quota in UP?

Naveen Meena Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant, you don't need any domicile certificate for applying to 85% STATE QUOTA. As per the rules any student who has completed 10th and 12th from UP will not be required to provide domicile certificate during counselling.

Your 10th and 12th marksheet are proof that you are permanent resident of this state so there's no need to provide domicile certificate.

All the best

Hope this helps
