Jayakumar said that the Tamil Nadu Assembly has unanimously passed a bill to bypass admissions in engineering and medical colleges through NEET and the proposed law is pending before the President for his approval. He stated that the state government is completely against NEET.
Speaking to media persons after a decennial programme of Shri Shankarlal Sundarbai Shasun College for women in T. Nagar recently, Jayakumar said that he doesn’t want Tamil Nadu students to face the odd of unitary system of NEET exam. For years Tamil Nadu has its own procedure to admit medical students and state doesn’t want central government or any other authority to interfere in that. State Government is planning its further strategize on the Supreme Court judgement regarding the same.
The Supreme Court on Monday directed the concerned authorities to work towards declaring results of a national examination which would decide the fate of around 12 lakh students seeking admissions in to medical and dental colleges across the country. The apex court stayed a May 24 interim order of the Madras High Court which had restrained the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) from publishing the results of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2017. The top court said it was inclined to grant a stay on the high court’s order which was indirectly “diluting” the schedule for NEET 2017 earlier fixed by the apex court. A vacation bench comprising Justice P C Pant and Justice Deepak Gupta directed the authorities concerned to proceed with the process of announcing the results, subsequent counselling and admission as per the schedule fixed by the apex court.
