News - Tamil Nadu's ordinance on NEET cleared

On Wednesday, the law ministry cleared an ordinance of the Tamil Nadu government which seeks to exempt medical students from appearing in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. The draft ordinance was cleared by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in consultation with Attorney General K K Venugopal.

Private colleges excluded :

The official, who requested anonymity, said the ordinance will be applicable only to government colleges, and not private ones.

All about the row :

Few weeks back, a huge uproar was caused in the Rajya Sabha with parties from Tamil Nadu raising voices, demanding a complete exemption of the state's students, from National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), alleging bias against them in the examination.

A Navaneethakrishan alleged that tough questions were given to students from the southern states and easy ones to those from the north. "This is discrimination," he said.

T K Rangarajan (CPI-M) said half of the questions in the NEET examination were out of the syllabus for Tamil Nadu students. "Is this the way of cooperative federalism? State assembly passes a resolution, the Central government is not accepting it," T K Rangarajan asked.

However, many colleges and institutes had taken a stay order and conducted private examinations for admission to their MBBS and BDS courses. Tamil Nadu, which had initially sought permanent exemption from NEET by passing two bills in the Assembly, later made efforts to be out of its ambit for at least one year or two.
