Tamil Nadu Governor returns Bill against NEET

Chennai: The Raj Bhavan announced on Thursday that Tamil Nadu Governor R.N. Ravi has sent a bill to the Assembly Speaker seeking to dispense with NEET-based admissions for undergraduate medical degree courses. The Assembly passed a bill in September that would allow students to be admitted to UG medical degree programmes based on their Plus Two scores.

The Governor was "of the opinion that the Bill is against the interests of the students, especially the rural and economically poor students of the State," according to a one-page press release from the Raj Bhavan, after a detailed study of the Bill that sought an exemption for the State from NEET and the report of the high-level committee constituted by the State government in this regard.

As a result, on February 1, 2022, the Governor returned the Bill to the Speaker of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, stating "specific grounds for its re-consideration by the House," according to the statement.

According to the release, the Supreme Court in Christian Medical College, Vellore Association Vs. Union of India (2020) also thoroughly examined the issue, particularly from a social justice perspective, and upheld NEET because it protects poor students from economic exploitation and promotes social justice.
