Tamil Nadu passes the bill, the 7.5% quota for government school students in medical admission



The Tamil Nadu Assembly on Tuesday approved a bill to approve the 7.5% quota within the existing reservation in undergraduate medical courses for state government school students from this academic year. It will be applicable to students who pass the National Entrance Admission Test (NEET).

Following the implementation of the NEET, there were reports that the representation of government school students in medical colleges in the state had been drastically reduced. The Justice Committee P Kalaiyarasan presented a report showing the large disparities in the socio-economic status of government students and private schools. Only four students from government schools were admitted under the government quota during 2018-19 and five during 2019-20. The quota is also being considered in private medical colleges.

For nearly a decade, Tamil Nadu had dropped the medical entrance exam, saying it led to stress among students and that poor students could not afford private training. Tamil Prime Minister Nadu Edappadi K. Palaniswami had previously asked the center to expel the state from NEET.

“It is felt throughout the country that NEET not only gives students studying in CBSE schools a high advantage but also very disadvantageous for an economically weaker part of society,” said MP Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) P Wilson. DMK floor manager at Rajya Sabha Tiruchi Siva said this year, poor and rural students took a disadvantage in the NEET exam as they were unable to get training due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Actor Suriya previously called NEET “Manuneedhi Thervu”, suggesting that students from wealthy families took advantage of NEET and the poor were left out in the cold.

The 45-year-old actor also called for a movement for a united voice against NEET, saying, “NEET kills the dreams of pediatricians from poor families. We should not be silent spectators of student deaths.”

Over 1.17 lakh aspirants landed for the NEET 2020 exams at various centers in Tamil Nadu.
