Tamil Nadu CM Urges President’s Approval for NEET Exemption Bill, Citing Urgent Need After Tragic Incident

 Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister, MK Stalin, has penned an open letter to President Droupadi Murmu, urging her to grant approval for the NEET Exemption Bill. The bill, aimed at exempting the state from the centralized medical entrance exam, has faced strong opposition from the Tamil Nadu government. Despite being reintroduced in the state assembly and securing its passage, the bill still awaits the governor’s endorsement.

The catalyst for this letter was the tragic incident involving a NEET aspirant and his father in Chennai, who reportedly took their own lives. In his correspondence, the Chief Minister underlined, “Every day of delay in implementing this bill not only deprives deserving candidates of valuable medical seats but also costs our society irreplaceable human lives.”

Stalin appealed to the President for swift assent to the bill. He also emphasized the need to place all matters directly affecting people under the ambit of the state list in the Constitution, particularly the realm of education. He expressed that only by transferring education to the state list could methods like the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) be completely scrapped.
