It has been reported that Chief Minister MK Stalin will meet Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi on Wednesday regarding the NEET exemption.
Chief Minister MK Stalin is scheduled to meet Governor RN Ravi at Raj Bhavan in Chennai at 5 pm today.
The meeting is taking place in the wake of a bill that was tabled and passed in the legislative assembly on September 14 for exempting Tamil Nadu from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin has ordered the formation of a committee headed by retired Judge AK Rajan to take steps to rectify the sharp drop in the enrollment of government school students in medical studies in Tamil Nadu.
The committee conducted a detailed study and filed the report.
Accordingly, a total of 86,342 comments were received. Of these, 65,007 opposed NEET while 18,966 supported it.
1,453 people have no comments on that. 916 people returned the same comments they had already sent.
The majority of people disliked the NEET. Based on this, the bill seeking exemption for Tamil Nadu from the entrance test for undergraduate medical studies, as well as the bill to pave the way for admission of students on the basis of Class 12 marks, was passed unanimously in the recently concluded session.
The bill has been sent to the governor for approval.
The governor has not approved this yet. In this context, the chief minister will meet the Governor of Tamil Nadu RN Ravi.
It is expected that it will be insisted on behalf of the Government of Tamil Nadu in connection with the NEET exemption.
