Committee to Study NEET and Madras High Court
- The Madras High Court order rejecting a PIL petition filed against the Justice A.K. Rajan committee, which was constituted to study the impact of NEET on medical admissions.
- Noting that the committee was constituted to study NEET’s impact on the educational, social and economic conditions of the students, the Chief Minister said it had received the views of over 86,000 people so far. “The government will take the next course of action after receiving a report from the committee,” he said.
- Recalling the ruling of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy that the mere constitution of a committee cannot be considered an act of defiance against any order passed by the Supreme Court in favour of NEET and that it did not pose even the remotest challenge to the constitutional right of the Centre to fix standards for higher education.
