New Delhi. The Tamil Nadu government has introduced a new bill under which competitive students in the state will be exempted from NEET 2021 exams. NEET i.e. National Eligibility and Entrance Examination is a central examination for medical students across the country. But according to the Tamil Nadu government’s bill, students in the state will be exempted from the exam.
State Chief Minister MK Stalin introduced the bill in the Assembly on Monday. Under the bill, it wants students in their state to be given separate opportunities for medical admissions instead of centralized examinations. The state government says students can also be given places in medical colleges on the basis of 12th number.
What is the argument of the Tamil Nadu government
The government argues that if students are given the opportunity to study through this medium, then all classes of society will be represented. The government has linked it to the social justice system. The state government has proposed a .5.5 per cent quota for government school students in state medical colleges.
The state government formed a committee
In fact, the Tamil Nadu government formed a committee to study the socio-economic impact of NEET. The committee found that the performance of students admitted to medical colleges through NEET examinations remained poor. The committee report further said that children from elite families get higher marks in this test. Demands have been raised to cancel the NEET exam after a student committed suicide. After the death of the student, there was a demand to cancel the exam through social media. Chief Minister Stalin says the fight for justice will continue.
The central government has also made arrangements for conservation.
However, there could be a lot of controversy over the Tamil Nadu government’s bill. In fact, the central government has also introduced EWS and OBC quotas to represent socio-economically backward students. This quota is different from the existing reservation.
