Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalitha opposes centre’s move on holding Medical CET

Opposing the centre’s move, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha expressed concerns over the Medical CETs. The NEET UG & NEET PG which have been recently announced are the medical entrance exams for undergraduate & postgraduate medical courses across Medical Colleges in India.

Jayalalitha has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh urging to exempt Tamil Nadu from NEET. She pointed that the state reservation policies will be effected if the state is forced to participate in the national level medical CET. The NEET UG has been scheduled to be held on 05 May 2013 while the NEET PG will be only in CBT mode during 24 November to 06 December.

She indicated that the centre’s decision is unilateral and surprising, since MCI earlier stated that the decision will be taken after holding meetings with each state however that was not the case she stated.

No conclusion has been drawn yet on whether NEET UG & NEET PG will hold good in Tamil Nadu or not. Share your views, do you think PM responds positively and exempt Tamil Nadu from NEET?

Tamil Nadu opposes NEET UG, Wants to stay away from it

The chief minister of Tamil Nadu, Jayalalithaa has reportedly written to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressing the states unwillingness to accept the Medical CET which is to be held from 2013. In her letter, she states that Tamil Nadu has been following 69% reservation for Backward and Most Backward Communities and Scheduled Castes and Tribes in professional courses. If a medical CET is enabled in the state, it will unbalance the entire admission system in the state.

Last year Tamil Nadu was also among the states which opposed NEET UG on the grounds that the syllabus varied between the state & centre. Tamil Nadu also has a good number of students from regional medium, last year NEET UG was to be held only in English & Hindi; it would have created a problem. This year NEET UG will be held in vernacular languages, meaning that students can test the test in regional language also.

It is possible that Tamil Nadu will shy away from NEET UG even in 2013.

Share your views, do you think that Tamil Nadu influences centre to avoid NEET UG taking place in Tamil Nadu.
