In May, Union Health Minister J P Nadda had held a meeting with the Health Ministers and Health Secretaries of 18 states/Union Territories towards implementation of NEET across states.

Joint Secretary, Medical Education, A K Singhal said, "The collaborative efforts of Central Health Ministry with the state health ministries have lead to this decision to bring parity for the students who have taken the State Board exams."

NEET has replaced AIPMT and has been made mandatory for admissions in all-India medical/dental colleges which means no other state can conduct its separate medical entrance.
