Jayalalitha Oppose All India CET For Medical Admissions Citing the reasons of Centre’s interference with the State Government’s rights in administrating the education system which would create problems in implementing the reservation policy followed uniquely in the State of Tamil Nadu, the Chief Minister, J Jayalalitha on Monday strongly opposed an All India Common Entrance Test for admission to Under Graduates and Post Graduates courses in medical colleges.

In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, she said that despite the State’s protest, the Centre has notified the National Board of Examination (NBE) for conducting the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test for PG (NEET-PG) courses and had gone ahead issuing a public notice for MD/MS/PG diploma courses for the 2013 session.

Even after repeated requests, this public notice indicated that it was now clear that the Centre has not considered the case and has gone ahead with the decision to implement the Common Entrance Test, she said and added that Tamil Nadu should be exempted from the test and allowed to continue with its existing system for admission to UG/PG medical seats.

She said the Union minister of health and family welfare had assured states they would be consulted and their views considered before evolving any policy with regard to conduct of an All India Common Entrance Test.
