NEET will be only exam to Admission to all medical courses in the country for any institutions even those run by minority and private organisations
NEET is conducted by the National Testing Agency or NTA annually and the next edition, according to Human Resource Development Ministry officials, is expected to be conducted in June. Last year, out of the 14,10,755 candidates appeared 7,97,042 qualified for admissions in various medical and allied undergraduates courses in the country.
The Supreme Court said "There is no violation of rights of minority institutions to come under NEET. At present, education is devoid of its real character of charity; it has become a commodity,"
"Uniform Entrance Test qualifies the test of proportionality and is reasonable. The same is intended to check several maladies which crept into medical education, to prevent capitation fee by admitting students which are lower in merit and to prevent exploitation, profiteering, and commercialisation of education," it added.
"The minority institutions are equally bound to comply with the conditions imposed under the relevant Acts and Regulations to enjoy affiliation and recognition, which apply to all institutions. In case they have to impart education, they are bound to comply with the conditions which are equally applicable to all. The regulations are necessary, and they are not divisive or disintegrative," the court said.
