  • DMK, AIADMK raise the issue in Parliament

NEW DELHI: Bowing to pressure from Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, the Centre has put on hold the decision by the Medical Council of India for conducting a common entrance test (CET) for MBBS courses from the next academic session.

The move has also been opposed by the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK).

The decision comes just two days after the Medical Council of India (MCI) announced with much fanfare its decision to hold an all-India entrance test for admission to medical colleges for undergraduate courses from 2011-2012. The MCI was awaiting formal approval of the notification to this effect. Mr. Karunanidhi had written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, urging him to “reconsider” its move to conduct a national-level common entrance examination for MBBS courses and said that the State could not accept the move as it amounted to an “infringement by the Union government on the autonomy of States.” A copy of the letter was sent to Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad

Mr. Karunanidhi wrote to the Prime Minister on Monday referring to the submission made by the Centre in the Supreme Court on the MCI recommendation to conduct a common entrance examination from next year. The Board of Governors of the MCI formally announced the decision the following day, saying that a notification would come in a day or two. According to Mr. Karunanidhi, Tamil Nadu had scrapped the entrance examination for engineering and medical admissions in 2007-08 through legislation with the Presidential assent. This had been done to safeguard the interests of the socially and economically disadvantaged students from the rural areas. The move benefited many such students and also resulted in more doctors agreeing to work in rural areas.

Tamil Nadu had also implemented 69 per cent reservation for socially disadvantaged sections, which would be difficult to implement when there was a common entrance examination, Mr. Karunanidhi said in his letter.

Supreme Court moved

On Thursday, Tamil Nadu moved the Supreme Court seeking to implead itself in a pending matter on which the Centre submitted that the MCI would come out with a notification for the CET for admission to medical courses.

On the same day, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and the AIADMK raised the matter in Parliament with the members demanding that the common entrance examinations for medical and engineering admissions be done away with, alleging infringement on the rights of the States.

    • What is the advantage with CET that you are telling

      Only Exam in India for Medicos corruption , paper leaks , brokers for seats , under table acts of misconduct done by various administrative authorities is AIPG. Check the history from 2002 till date 🙂 🙂

      1. Shouldn’t it be scrapped, instead of scrapping State PG Exams 🙂 🙂 🙂

      2. All India has been plagued with Paper Leaks, Missing Questions, etc for the past decade. Till date they have not taken any remedial step. Now, if the state entrances are not there, is it justified

      3. AIPG do not release the marks. Do we need to bear with this

      4. What is your opinion on Ex Service Man Quota, Sponsored Seats, Institute Quota etc

    • Only because of Politicians in Tamil Nadu, you are like what you are and Bihar is like Bihar is. Don’t be totally ungrateful

  2. CET என்று ஒன்று நடந்தால் அரசியல் வாதிகள் நடத்தும் தனியார் மருத்துவ கல்லூரிகளுக்கு எல்லாம் அது பெரும் பாதகமாகிவிடும் … அதனால் தான் அரசியல் வாதிகள் கொதித்தேலுகிரார்கள்… நுழைவு தேர்வு வேண்டாம் என சொல்பவர்கள் தமிழ்நாட்டில் தனியார் மருதுவகல்லுரிகள் நடத்தும் கண்துடைப்பு நுழைவு தேர்வை ராத்து செய்தாரா ? … எல்லாம் அரசியல் பிச்சைகார பிழைப்புக்கள் …

    • What is the advantage with CET that you are telling

      Can you tell ONE ADVANTAGE
      If Central Government is so concerned, why don’t they first conduct ONE Common exam for AIIMS, JIPMER, PGI etc…. Or why do they need exams for this. Why can’t they just allot all seats in these colleges through AIPG

      Think !!

      Only Exam in India for Medicos corruption , paper leaks , brokers for seats , under table acts of misconduct done by various administrative authorities is AIPG. Check the history from 2002 till date 🙂 🙂

    • Private Medical Colleges are for a different economic sect of people
      Government Medical Colleges are for a different economic sect of people

      Common man is going to gain nothing or loose nothing whether Private Medical Colleges conduct entrance exams or not

      It pains a lot to see that Medicos are so ignorant about basic facts of their profession, like the one listed above. It is because of such ignorance, most doctors are easily taken for a ride

    • Don’t think about ulterior motives for each and every steps

      Also don’t bring politics into each and every issue


      State Government wrote to central because the associations here immediately brought to their notice the dangers of CET

      If you are asking why other states are not protesting regarding this, the answer is LOW AWARENESS in other states

      Remember that

      Tamil Nadu was the first state to protest against Compulsary Rural Service.

      Also

      Remember that Tamil Nadu was the first state to oppose the half baked doctor (Rural MBBS) Scheme

      Even at that time, as soon as the associations brought the dangers of Rural MBBS to the state governments, the State Government (only State in India) announced that there will be no Rural MBBS in Tamil Nadu

  3. Really, it is the low awareness level playing the spoil sport. Different states are following different syllabus from class x+ and on one fine morning making them compelled to sit for a tough exam with a set and different syllabus is the only thing that can happen in India only.

    Proper road map with clear cut time line was required before implementing this.

  4. dr.varaprasad says

    CET SHOULD BE SCRAPPED:
    1.THERE WILL NOT BE A PROPER REPRESENTATION OF STATES AND THERE WILL BE ANAMOLY OF TOO MANY STUDENTS FROM NORTH INDIA (WITH FEW GOVT. MEDICAL COLLEGES) GETTING MBBS SEATS.
    2.INSTEAD OF CET,CENTRAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD CONSIDER STARTING ONE MEDICAL COLLEGE EVERY DISTRICT IN INDIA(WHICH IS BEING IMPLEMENTED IN TAMILNADU)SO THAT THERE WILL BE NO NEED FOR RURAL MBBS SCHEME AND NO SHORTAGE OF DOCTORS IN RURAL NORTH INDIA.
    3.IF TAMILNADU CAN SUCCESSFULLY POST DOCTORS TO RURAL AREAS THEN WHY NOT BIHAR,JHARKAND,UP,ETC.,(IT REQUIRES STRONG POLITICAL COMMITMENT WHICH UNFORTUNATELY IS MISSING IN THESE STATES)
    4.CENTRAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD STOP LAMENTING THAT “DOCTORS ARE NOT WILLING TO WORK IN RURAL AREAS(????)” AND INSTEAD LOOK INTO THE GRASSROOT LEVEL OF THE PROBLEMS AND TRY RECTIFYING THEM .

  5. All of them are liars they are not going to do anything for students but only try to fil their pockets..
