Justice AK Rajan NEET impact committee said 90% analysis done – July 8, 2021AK Rajan said the government has not made any recommendation to extend the tenure of the NEET vulnerability study committee and some data need to be examined. It is not proper to file the report of the committee as the cases against the NEET Vulnerability Review Committee are pending in the court. Retired Judge AK Rajan said it was not proper to file the panel’s report as the cases against the NEET Vulnerability Review Panel were pending in court. The Tamil Nadu government has set up a committee headed by retired Justice AK Rajan to investigate and report on the problems faced by students and parents due to NEET examination and the impact on Tamil Nadu since NEET came into force.
- Most of the students and parents from Tamil Nadu are against NEET exam
- So far 90% of the analysis has been done by the NEET committee

NEET exam: BJP case for publicity: Tamil Nadu government responds to High Court – July 3, 2021The Tamil Nadu government has filed a reply in the Chennai High Court alleging that the case against the panel set up to study the impact of NEET is an attempt to suppress democracy. Tamil Nadu BJP general secretary K Nagarajan has filed a case seeking the quashing of an order issued by the Tamil Nadu government set up a panel headed by retired judge A K Rajan to examine the implications of the NEET exam. In that case, Attorney General R Shanmugasundaram and Attorney General P Muthukumar have filed a reply petition to the Secretary of the Medical and Family Welfare Department of the State of Tamil Nadu, J Radhakrishnan.
- It said, “The petition does not state how the fundamental rights and legal rights of the petitioner have been affected by the appointment of a committee to examine the impact of NEET selection.
- Further, the report of the committee said that the case has been pursued only on the basis of conjecture regarding the actions of the state. He, who belongs to a political party, did not say how the public interest was affected in the matter. Justice AK Rajan’s panel received 84,343 petitions. Parents and students have commented on the impact of NEET. But the petitioner is not a student or parent. As an administrator of a political party, he seems to have filed this case for publicity.
- Furthermore, the committee is set up on the basis of public interest, based on the need to hear the grievances of students, parents, and those concerned about the impact of NEET selection. The petitioner has filed this case in the guise of a case against the appointment of a committee interfering in the power of the state to provide good governance and the fundamental functions of the Constitution.
- The appointment of Judge AK Rajan’s panel did not violate any fundamental right of the Constitution. The committee is appointed under the authority of the state government. The government will decide on the next course of action only after examining the committee’s report. The case is an attempt to suppress democracy, as opposed to the appointment of a panel to study the problem raised by rural and socio-economically backward students.
- The system of conducting entrance examinations for vocational courses has been in place since 1984. However, the entrance test was canceled in 2006 on the basis of a report submitted by former vice-chancellor Anantha Krishnan’s committee. When the NEET exam was introduced, petitions came to the government that rural and socio-economically backward students were unable to attend private training classes. It is noteworthy that there are differences between the Tamil Nadu Board of Education and other Board of Education in terms of textbooks, teaching method, examination procedure, and assessment. The petitions state that these students will pass the NEET examination only after writing the subsequent examinations.
- This committee is therefore set up only because a study is needed to examine the current state of medical study and ensure equality for all students. The committee is set up only to examine whether the NEET exam affects government schools and those educated in the Tamil way. This cannot be said to be contrary to the orders of the Supreme Court and the High Court. The committee, in the absence of a report to the State, petitioned the fetus. Nagarajan is not fit for trial. It should therefore be dismissed, ”the petition said.
BJP’s complaint against NEET impact committee – current statusThe case came up for hearing before Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamurthy. Advocate V. Raghavachari appeared for the petitioner and accused the Tamil Nadu government of setting up a committee to override the NEET selection process. The Attorney General of Tamil Nadu R. Shanmugasundaram appeared and said that the policy decision was taken and the committee was set up on the basis of the assurances given in the election manifesto. But the judges intervened and advised the state not to take a position contrary to the Supreme Court ruling. They also questioned whether the Supreme Court’s permission had been obtained for the formation of the panel. The Attorney General requested that the Government be given an opportunity to seek an explanation.

Actor Surya NEET speech to Appeal on NEET Exam Vulnerabilities – June 19, 2021Actor Surya has requested to appeal to the panel of Justice AK Rajan set up by the Government of Tamil Nadu on the implications of NEET selection. The Tamil Nadu government has set up a committee headed by Justice AK Rajan to look into the NEET exam and its implications. It has also created a website called email@example.com for the public to comment on. Currently, actor Surya has released a statement in this regard. In it, he has requested that the implications of NEET selection be appealed to the panel of Judge AK Rajan set up by the Government of Tamil Nadu. In addition, education is a weapon for the betterment of the lives of students in public schools. Here there is some kind of education for the poor and some kind of education for the rich. He also said that the only option to determine eligibility in an environment where there are different educational opportunities is against social justice.

According to Stalin’s new announcement on the NEET exam,
- Many academics are of the view that the NEET system introduced by the Central Government has been denying access to medical education for the last few years to the rural and urban poor in our state, students in government schools, and backward classes in our society such as Tamil medium students. In view of this, the NEET system of choice against social justice should be abandoned.
- The Government of Tamil Nadu has been waging a series of legal battles, insisting that medical college seats should be filled only on the basis of Class 12 final examination marks, as enacted during the period.
- Tamil Nadu has always had a historic duty to uphold social justice. In order to continue to fulfill this obligation, this Government is committed to taking all necessary steps to remove the vulnerabilities caused by the NEET selection system.
- To fully explore whether the NEET system of medical selection has affected the backward students of the society in the last few years and to rectify the vulnerability of such backward students, to devise alternative enrollment methods for all, and to explore the possibilities and legal mechanisms for their implementation – Under the supervision of retired Justice Mr. AK Rajan, a high-level committee of academics and concerned authorities have been formed to give recommendations to the government.
Stalin sent a mail to PM regarding NEET exam cancel – June 05, 2021
Why are Tamil Nadu people opposed to the NEET?People are often clamoring for NEET to be abolished on social media and on the news. And most of our parents, are unaware of the ins and outs, even as they yell, “Yeah, it’s a social injustice!” It’s not like that, you give an opinion about an issue. Also, some north Indians may wonder why the NEET is only held in Tamil Nadu every year. Why can’t Tamil Nadu’s students take the exam, despite the fact that it is historically recognized as the country of intellectuals? For these, let me explain why the people of Tamil Nadu are so opposed to the NEET entrance exam and what is my perspective towards this. The following statements are in the aspect of most of the Tamil Nadu people who are opposing NEET.
- Tamil Nadu is known as India’s medical capital because of the dedicated doctors produced by Tamil Nadu medical institutions who were chosen through a selection procedure prevailed here.
- Is the NEET exam effective? There was a 144-mark mistake in the 2018 NEET Tamil question paper although the clearing score that year was merely 119.
- Why the heck did you chose the CBSE stream for framing questions when there are so many distinct syllabuses in various states? Each subject from the Tamil Nadu state board differs from the CBSE syllabus.
- The biology about 70%,
- Chemistry about 60% and
- Physics about 55%.
- Although the majority of medical institutions in India are run by the national and state governments, over 66% of NEET candidates come from private schools.
- Prior to NEET, roughly 500 students from government schools were admitted to medical colleges in Tamil Nadu, however, that number has now dropped to roughly 40. Even if students who achieved 1150 or above out of 1200 are labeled as unworthy students by NEET, the issue lies with NEET, not the medical aspirants.
- Only 1/3 of the seats are filled by freshers through NEET, and 2/3 of the students who diligently prepared for NEET at coaching institutes that charge between ¥ 75,000 and ¥ 2,00,000 per year. Poor students have mostly turned away from medical schools as a result of this approach.
- Apart from the 85% Tamil Nadu state quota seats, Tamil Nadu students even now account for more than 20% of seats at premium medical colleges like JIPMER and AIIMS. However, we oppose the NEET since it made it hard for impoverished and rural students who could not afford coaching institutions to get into medical schools.
Can DMK cancel the NEET exams in Tamil Nadu?If you are wondering, is it possible that the DMK would exclude Tamil Nadu medical aspirants from the NEET exam? To put it another way, Tamil Nadu students do not need to take NEET in order to get admission to medical colleges inside Tamil Nadu. However, if a student desires to enter a medical college outside of Tamil Nadu, they may do so by taking the NEET exam. Then let me explain the situations and possibilities of NEET cancel in Tamil Nadu.
How will the DMK be able to cancel NEET in Tamil Nadu?Either the DMK may persuade the BJP-led federal government to exclude Tamil Nadu from NEET. This, however, would not work because the BJP has already stated that no one state can be spared. This leaves just one other choice. – The DMK must resolve the matter lawfully through the Supreme Court.
What has the ADMK-lead Tamil Nadu government accomplished so far?The ADMK has filed three appeals, claiming that Tamil Nadu students should be exempted based on the basis that “government school students follow state board syllabus and find it difficult to attend NEET examinations, which are based on CBSE curriculum.” The Supreme Court, however, dismissed this argument, adding, “This is not a viable argument, and the Tamil Nadu government should take efforts to prepare government school students for NEET examinations.” With few options, the Tamil Nadu government petitioned again, this time requesting that “Please permit Tamil Nadu students to take NEET examinations in Tamil” – which was approved.
What is the present situation?Students from Tamil Nadu are allowed to take the NEET examinations in Tamil, however, they are not exempt. The Supreme Court has also raised concerns about the 69 percent reservation for Tamil Nadu students in medical seats, which is now being discussed. The ADMK government passed legislation in the Tamil Nadu legislature banning NEET and forwarded it to the president for approval. Tamil Nadu can only receive an exception if the president agrees. However, India’s President has repeatedly declined to sign and has turned down the proposal.
Can DMK cancel NEET in Tamil Nadu?The Congress government suggested the idea of a nationwide entrance exam, NEET in 2005–2006. The DMK was in a coalition with the Congress government. So, while Kalaignar was CM of Tamilnadu the DMK-lead Tamil Nadu government adopted legislation in the Tamil Nadu parliament stating “qualifying criteria for MBBS and BDS in Tamil Nadu shall be completely dependent on 12th standard exam results conducted by Tamil Nadu government.” The President of India, Dr. APJ, was presented with this law, which he signed and endorsed. Because APJ was a government school student in Tamil Nadu, he knew the practical difficulties that government school students face when attending NEET. As a result, he endorsed Tamil Nadu government legislation.
Why did the ADMK government not file a petition based on this argument?According to the DMK, the ADMK government didn’t want to give credit to the DMK since it would be perceived as a DMK win. So yet, the ADMK has made no public statement on the matter.
Why didn’t the DMK make an earlier plea and promise to do it if they win?Because the DMK was not the Tamil Nadu government’s ruling party, they did not have the power to file an appeal on behalf of the Tamil Nadu government. Any Indian citizen, however, has the right to bring a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on this matter. Wilson (a DMK MP) has already filed a PIL before the Supreme Court about this issue. The lawsuit is still in the process. During the election campaign, the DMK stated that if they win, they will file a re-appeal as the Tamil Nadu government based on this. Based on a clause in the Indian Constitution, the DMK manifesto also calls for bringing education back under state authority. So let’s get this straightened out.
- According to the DMK, Tamilnadu would be exempted from NEET due to legislation passed by the Tamil Nadu parliament in 2007 that regulates medical college admission in the state for MBBS and BDS.
- Students from other states can take NEET and apply to medical schools in Tamil Nadu.
- Students from Tamil Nadu can take the NEET exam based on their preferences and gain admission to medical schools both inside and outside the state.
- Those from TN government schools and students who do not wish to take NEET can receive admission in TN based on their 12th grades.
NEET cancel in Tamil Nadu – My perspective
The syllabus was outdated hereThe syllabus in Tamil Nadu had not been revised in ten years. A handful of topics were woefully out of date. Students studying computers, for example, we’re learning about Star Office v8, which was launched in 2005. The Star office suite as a whole has been phased out. The level of computer science problems in Class XI and XII was practically ridiculous. In contrast, in ICSE and other state boards, students are required to build a large program as part of their internals. Politicians took this as an advantage and revert the unaware people towards this path. But now syllabi are changed so there is no need of protesting anymore.
The government doesn’t make education for ruralAnother misconception advanced against NEET by those who rule or seek to control Tamil Nadu is that individuals who study in rural do not have access to a proper education. Consider this: these Dravidian parties have no shame in acknowledging that they haven’t constructed facilities for village students to receive proper education after 50 years of rule. Instead of improving the quality of Government schools, they made 7.5 reservations for them being a Government student. Many other states, I’m sure, haven’t performed any better, but none have been brave enough to say that they haven’t done anything to help their pupils. If you can’t do this after 50 years, you shouldn’t be ruling in the first place.
Misleading the Tamil Nadu people in the name of equality.This is another fiction peddled by Tamil politicians to demonize NEET. That if NEET exists, impoverished and rural pupils would be unable to succeed. Let me explain to you why this is a misconception, consider medical admissions in 2016, when the NEET was not in place. In 2016 without NEET, backward districts in Tamil Nadu, including Thiruvarur (2), Sivagangai (14), Nilgiris (2), Nagapattinam (10), and Ariyalur-district of Anitha (4), sent a total of 32 students to medical colleges. That is, 5 out of 30 districts combined accounted for less than 1% of total government medical seats. These same districts sent 140 students after NEET. That’s an increase of more than 300 percent. Before NEET, Namakkal, a district known for its expensive boarding schools, received 25% of all seats. Only 3% of seats were available after NEET.
Advantages of the NEET exam in Tamil Nadu?
2. NEET gave you time to explore
3. No need to mug upIf you are applying for MBBS based on a board exam, you must mug up six books and vomit them on your exam paper. You don’t have to employ your understanding and application abilities. If you like to mug up information rather than understanding concepts and applying them in exams, then MBBS and medicine would be a living torment for you. However, in order to pass the NEET exam, you must understand and apply the concepts. This will eventually make you like your future medical trip, which means the medicine is an ocean where you have to use your practical knowledge to survive not your memory power.
4. Easy to get MBBS seats all over India
5. Same question and same difficulty levelI’m not sure if you agree with me or not. However, till 2016, barely 1% of Tamilnadu CBSE students were admitted into Tamil Nadu Government Medical Colleges. Outstate board, students filled the remaining 82 to 83% of the 85% state quota. It’s because our state board curriculum and examination were simplified, and we had a cut-off score of around 196 to 200. This is a huge cutoff for CBSE students, despite the fact that they are marginally better than state board students in every part of skills and knowledge. We must admit that CBSE students did not fight for examination inequity, which resulted in them losing their MBBS seats. Yes, after NEET as a state board student, we now have a significantly lower percentage of MBBS seats available. According to statistics from the previous year, CBSE students filled around 10 to 15 percent of the overall state quota, which was 85 percent.
6. Don’t need to answer in paragraphsYou are no longer required to answer in paragraphs. To get marks, you don’t have to write exact points. What you really need is to grasp the concepts and be able to answer solely multiple-choice questions.
7. Handwriting and presentation will be useless
