HRD Minster Prakash Javadekar July 7 said that engineering and medical entrance exams — JEE and NEET — would now be conducted online and twice a year by the newly formed National Testing Agency (NTA).
Responding to the announcement, DMK working president M.K. Stalin slammed the Centre for “creating confusion” over NEET every time.
Mr. Stalin said medical education aspirants from rural areas, especially those from government schools, hardly had computers or knowledge about computers and wondered how the BJP government at the Centre did not factor in this point before deciding to conduct NEET online.
In order to ensure equality, the BJP government at the Centre should immediately withdraw the decision to hold NEET online and also get the President’s approval for the two bills on NEET exemption to Tamil Nadu, he said.
