Tamil Nadu to get exemption from NEET for 2017

He told reporters after the meeting that he had sought the Centre's approval for the state legislation giving exemption for Tamil Nadu students. One of the longest running demands of Tamil Nadu politicians has finally come to an end with this decision of the Centre.

Tamil Nadu will be given an exemption from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses this year, union minister Nirmala Sitharaman said. "The problem comes only in terms of government college admissions and also in terms of seats surrendered by private colleges to government colleges". Rural students face difficulty in getting admissions. 90% students in Tamil Nadu comes from the State Board, which makes it hard for them to qualify the NEET as that is based on CBSE syllabus.

Chennai: PMK founder S. Ramadoss on Saturday alleged that the state government had totally failed in obtaining exemption for Tamil Nadu from Neet and asserted that the AIADMK (Amma) government would be punished for its acts of betrayal. On August 3, for the second time in past three weeks, the Health Minister had met the Prime Minister along with Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai once again and requested for a NEET-exemption.
