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?

  1. ITS CLEAR THAT MOST OFF THE SCHOOLS OF TAMIL NADU WONT TAKE THEIR PLUS ONE PROPERLY. instead of plus one they are taking the plus two subjects in the first year to get more results to there schools and if they are force to conduct these NEET Exams these students will suffer because they dont know the plus one subjects clearly………… SO I THINK THIS IS THE ACTUAL REASON FOR TAMILNADU.Its a wonderful foolishness they are doing……..

  2. neet pg shouldnt come to tamilnadu. as here ppls a in state board level only we cant able to competite wit central board. so plzzzzzz leave us. we will follow the prev routine. TN CM mam will get stay from this neet pg. we med students having hope on her. she will never leave us bothering.

  3. central government has to do the following before dictating the states and public for any common entrance test

    !) from the date of publication minimum three to four years for any professional course UG common entrance. which will ensure student and parents to draw proper plan to face the exam for entrance

    2) during that time bring common syllabus in all states LKG to XII std

    3) persons interested to join any professional course will opt for such common syllabi school education

    4) uniform grading in school education and uniform reservation to be enforced in all professorial course

  4. As per Supreme Court directions, the NEET UG-2013 and NEET PG-2013 are to be conducted. Therefore no State will be exempted.

  5. hey ,VANI you are very right….but by expressing your views and tumara jo gussa h…
    i think you should file RTI against NEET and MCI…they are exploiting students…

  6. I agree with Vani 100%. Country is suffering due to doctors getting qualifications by paying money for admission to UG and PG cources. Arrogant people buy seats by paying up to 40-60 laks as donation and then yearly fees, total cost up to one crore for mbbs, upto 2 crores for pg seats to make their children doctors. India need good quality doctors , hence neet ug should come
