He alleged that a misinformation campaign is being run on NEET which is leading to confusion among medical aspirants and their parents. “The real and hidden agenda is to protect the private and vested interest that have been deriving benefit of corrupt system by charging capitation fee running into crores. They are the one who will be worst hit by holding NEET,” he said.

Citing a report published in the Tribune newspaper on May 13, 2016, which highlights that as many as 80 parliamentarians are having direct stake in running of the Medical Colleges, Dr Garg said that “The NEET will strike at the very root of capitation fee which generates huge amount of black money.”
As per MCI, the total number of seats for admission in MBBS in 2015 is 49, 990 out of which 25, 330 are in Government Sector and remaining 24, 660 are in private sector. The admission in Government medical colleges take place either on the basis of AIPMT or Common Entrance Test conducted by State Governments. For remaining 24, 660 seats more than 100 tests are conducted by private bodies.
“The entrance exams conducted by private colleges are mere eyewash and only those who pay capitation fee get admission in these institutions,” Dr Garg said adding, “The extent of the capitation fee in the medical colleges can be gauged from the fact that invariable each student in private medical college has to pay Rs. 1 crore and if it is multiplied by 24, 660 seats, it would come to around 25, 000 crores.”
On NEET 2016 question booklet language
Dr Garg also said that raising objection on bi-lingual test paper is just an excuse from lawmakers to defer the NEET implementation.
Many state governments have advocated that NEET 2016 question booklet should be in vernacular language so that candidates from different regions can easily comprehend it. Also, during discussion in the both houses of Parliament many members said that language barrier in many states may put students from these states at disadvantage in a national level test which is only in two languages – Hindi and English.
Dr Garg said that response of test papers in vernacular language has not been encouraging in the past and therefore it does make sense to object NEET for this. “NEET 2013 was conducted in vernacular but not a single candidate who appeared in vernacular languages could get the admission. This information was provided by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) before the Supreme Court while hearing on NEET,” he claimed.
MBBS is taught only in English and as per MCI Regulations a candidate is eligible for admission to MBBS only when he has cleared the paper of English in class 12.
So far as seats in Government colleges are concerned, 15% seats are filled by AIPMT which is conducted by CBSE primarily in English language. This year as many as 12 states including M.P., Haryana, Orissa, Delhi, had already decided to admit 85 per cent state-quota seats from AIPMT state merit list only.
On NEET Syllabus and State-quota seats:
He also said that syllabus of NEET is based on knowledge of Physics, Chemistry and Biology which is similar to state board syllabus. Last but not the least, he added that the students of one state will not be competing with the students of other States for state quota seats as there will be separate merit list for each of the states.
