Stalin on NEET : Urges Prez to accord sanction t0 Bill exempting TN from NEET

Stalin on NEET : He also drew her attention on the need to expedite the assent to the Bill, pending for the Presidential assent for more than a year. Considering the fact that the NEET- based medical selection process is against the students from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds, the state has opted for the MBBS selection process through the Plus-2 marks, he said.

Chennai, 27 Oct (City Times): (Stalin on NEET):  Chief Minister M.K.Stalin has urged President Droupadi Murmu to accord assent to the Bill passed in the Tamil Nadu Assembly for  exemption to the state from the purview of NEET exams.

Seeks admissions for UG medical courses based on Plus- 2 marks

He also wanted admissions for UG medical courses based on the marks secured in the Plus-2 board exams conducted by the State government. Stalin handed over a letter to the President, who visited the city to attend the eighth convocation of the Indian Maritime University.

In the letter, he wanted Murmu to accord the assent to the Tamil Nadu Admission to Under Graduate Medical Degree Courses Bill, 2021. He also drew her attention on the need to expedite the assent to the Bill, pending for the Presidential assent for more than a year.
Considering the fact that the NEET based medical selection process is against the students from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds, the state has opted for the MBBS selection process through the Plus-2 marks, he said.

“This process had served our State’s interests well in the past but had to be discontinued after the introduction of NEET by the Union government,” he added.

Bill passed based on the recommendations of Justice A K Rajan panel

To address this issue, the  Tamil Nadu Admission to Under Graduate Medical Degree Courses Bill, 2021,  was passed by the state Assembly on September 13, 2021, based on the recommendations of the Committee headed by Justice A.K. Rajan, the CM said.

Governor returns the Bill after five months of delay: Stalin

It was sent to the Governor on September 18, 2021, but it was returned by him after five months of delay. Then it was reintroduced in the Assembly on February 8, 2022, and was passed again after reconsideration and sent again to the Governor for reserving the same to Presidential assent, Stalin pointed out.

“In this scenario, I once again wish to reiterate that the inordinate delay in granting assent to our Bill has deprived medical admissions for many deserving students,” the CM said in his letter to the President.
