Chennai: As the dates for submitting the notification for counselling for Post Graduation students (MBBS and BDS), are approaching, the Doctors’ Association for Social Equality (Dase) urged the Central Government to take speedy action to exempt the state students, both UG and PG, from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Neet), in a war foot manner.
The Association also requested the Central Government to fix the fees for Deemed Universities and Private Medical Colleges, which is fast mushrooming into a business. “There is no point of having the Neet if the colleges are going to loot the students,” said Dr Ravindranth of Dase.
With the counseling dates fast approaching, the Association sought that the timings be managed properly, to ensure that seats are not wasted or blocked.
“Many states like Maharashtra, Punjab, Pondicherry and Odisha have introduced a system of combined counseling, wherein, the state government will conduct counseling for both government and private colleges and deemed university colleges. We request the Tamil Nadu government to also follow the same,” added Dr Ravindranath.
