NEET 2016: Centre listens states’ concerns over NEET; assures justice for students

NEET 2016: Centre listens states’ concerns over NEETUnion Health Minister JP Nadda has assured states that their concerns on a common medical entrance exam will be addressed and said the central government “will soon formulate a course of action on this crisis”.

In a meeting with state health ministers and state secretaries held on May 16, the Union Minister noted opinions of different states on implementation of common medical entrance test – NEET 2016. After the meeting, Nadda said that the centre favoured a fair examination system and NEET was good for medical aspirants. He however said that test paper language issue raised by many states is a valid concern. He also shared states’ concern on syllabus mismatch of NEET and state level exams.

“We are all in favour of NEET but regional language issue, syllabus issue and on-going state exams are three things to be taken care of. After the consultations, we will reach a decision,” he said, adding, “Will soon formulate further course of action.”

The consultation meeting was convened after many lawmakers strongly urged for an ordinance to overrule the SC judgment on replacing all state-level and private medical entrance exam with a single exam National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

 

Nadda also hinted that more rounds of discussions will be conducted with states and representatives of political parties on the NEET issue before approaching the Supreme Court to convince it for deferring its order passed on May 9 regarding common medical entrance exam.

 

The Supreme Court had ruled that starting this academic session, students would have to appear in NEET to seek admission to medical or dental colleges in the country. The apex court order had implied that all government colleges, deemed universities and private medical colleges would be covered under NEET and those examinations which had already taken place or were slated to be conducted separately stand scrapped.
