MK Stalin, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, presented a bill in the Assembly on Monday morning opposing NEET, which also requested permanent exemption for students studying in Tamil Nadu from the Central Government’s Medical Entrance Test.
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK)’s MP gave a memorandum to President against NEET on February 28 and the party also wanted to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah regarding the matter but was denied by the minister. Tamil Nadu Legislative assembly on September 13, 2021 passed the Anti-NEET Bill 2021 which exempts the state from NEET and students would get admissions to UG Medical degree courses based on the qualifying HSC +2 marks or class 12 marks.
On June 5 of this year, the chief minister ordered the formation of a panel led by retired judge AK Rajan. In the months that followed, a panel of educationalists and officials from the state education department investigated the impact of NEET among students in government schools in Tamil Nadu, as well as its consequences for kids from economically disadvantaged homes.
The bill was introduced by the CM on September 13 in accordance with the panel’s findings.
According to the Bill’s declaration of goals and reasons, the panel decided after evaluating the impact of NEET that if it continues for a few more years, Tamil Nadu’s health system will be severely harmed. “In Primary Health Centers (PHCs) and Government Hospitals, there may not be enough doctors to go around. The poor in rural and metropolitan areas may be unable to enroll in medical school as a result of this, according to the statement.
