If the centralised medical entrance examination — NEET — continues then there may not be sufficient professional docs for being employed within the Government Hospitals, reveals 165 pages report of Retired Justice Rajan Committee titled “Report of the High-Level Committee To Study The Impact of NEET on Medical Admissions in Tamil Nadu”. The Justice AK Rajan committee was fashioned by the federal government of Tamil Nadu to review the socio-economic impression of NEET.
The 165-pages report is lastly launched. This is the report foundation on which the Tamil Nadu meeting has voted towards having the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). The state has sought exemption from the centralised examination for its college students. The state govt means that college students needs to be enrolled on faculties primarily based on class 12 marks as a substitute of NEET.
Students who’ve been enrolled in MBBS programs by way of NEET have carried out poorly than these enrolled primarily based on class 12 marks, the report reveals.
If NEET continues for just a few extra years, “the well being care system of Tamil Nadu can be very badly affected,” the report states. It adds that as a result, ultimately Tamil Nadu may go back to pre-independence days. Tamil Nadu as a State would go down in the rank among States, in the Medical and Health Care system, states the report.
The report also suggests that NEET is skewed towards students from wealthy families. NEET is dangerous to the robust public health system prevailing in Tamil Nadu. “Those who get admitted based on NEET are primarily from urban, affluent, educated families. We found that 70% of students when they finish their PG course chose to work with private corporate hospitals. But it was not the case before the introduction of NEET. Earlier, 70% of students chose to work with government hospitals. Therefore I would say NEET is destructive, it shatters the public health system,” Dr Jawahar Nesan, a member of Justice AK Rajan committee had advised News18.com.
Justice AK Rajan committee includes 9 members together with the state Health Secretary, Director of Medical Education. The committee obtained round 90000 responses from the general public concerning the impression of NEET. The committee had labored for a month to submit a 165-page report back to the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
