The meeting came to following agreements between the ministers. The ministers unanimously agreed that NEET should not be implemented immediately. The central government will put forth its view on the matter to the apex court and ask for a stay on the Supreme Court order that held NEET as obligatory for all those who seek admission into mental and dental colleges. The government says it will look into the syllabus, language and other issues with the present test before NEET is made mandatory. As of now, there is no decision on bringing forth an ordinance to push for NEET to be implemented.
Last week, the apex court stated, "Only NEET would enable students to get admission to MBBS or BDS studies," after turning down a appeals by state governments seeking to conduct their own medical examinations. Post the Supreme Court ruling, many experts and opposition parties said that the ruling will impede students passing out from state boards in vernacular languages and living in remote areas to perform well in in the common admission test and will be discriminatory.
Earlier, several MPs have demanded the government to bring forth an ordinance to stall the NEET for the current academic session."I don't have any problem with NEET, but have an issue with the timing of its implementation," Anil Vij, health minister, Haryana.
