  • The Centre has assured that legal consultations are being held over implementation of Supreme Court-ordered NEET as the sole entrance test for admissions to medical colleges and that there will be a decision in two days.
We are coming out with a solution very soon. Phase-1 of NEET is over and Phase-II will take place. There are three issues which need to be addressed-the issue of ongoing examinations, syllabus and language. We are going to opt for legal consultations to arrive at a solution, in the next day or two. 
J P Nadda, Union Health Minister
  • According to the Centre, the reason behind bringing National Eligibility cum Entrance Test(NEET) for admissions to medical and dental colleges across the country is to tackle the corruption and malpractices. Nadda’s comments came against the backdrop of reports that the government is mulling bringing an Ordinance to defer by one year the implementation of NEET.
