NEET 2019 News Today

Chennai: Union Minister for Railways and Coal Piyush Goyal on Friday dismissed the need to scrap the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for medical college admissions saying it would enable the private colleges to demand a huge capitation fee.

On Friday Congress President Rahul Gandhi in a series of election rallies in Tamil Nadu said the party's manifesto has promised scrapping of NEET, in line with the demands of Tamil Nadu people.

BJP's ally in Tamil Nadu, the ruling AIADMK in its manifesto has promised to secure temporary exemption for the state from NEET.

Speaking to reporters, Goyal said Congress wanted to re-introduce a system where private medical colleges can demand capitation fee. He said students belonging to weaker economic background should be able to pursue medical education, which, he said, is possible under NEET.

Clearing the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (UG) makes candidates eligible for admission to First year MBBS, BDS, BUMS, BAMS, BHMS and other medical and paramedical courses.

According to the schedule earlier released by National Testing Agency (NTA), NEET 2019 will be held on May 05, 2019 - in pen and paper as well as in online mode. The NEET 2019 admit card will be available for download from April 15, and the NEET 2019 result will be declared on June 5, 2019.
