Talks on Exempting Puducherry students from NEET based selection

Chief Minister, V Narayanasamy said that he had requested the Centre to discharge Puducherry students from NEET based selection for admission to medical colleges during the academic year 2017-18.

“We will not be able to accept NEET based selection as schools in the Union Territory are not fully equipped to adopt the CBSE syllabus, which is the criterion for NEET based selection for medical courses”, Narayanasamy said. He said he would reiterate the plea during his coming visit to Delhi and meeting with the Union Health Minister.

In the present condition, the admission to medical colleges, including privately managed institutions in the Union territory are through Centralised Admission Committee and on the basis of marks scored in the plus two public examinations. Other than a State government run medical college, there are seven private institutions in the union territory.
