Tamil Nadu government strongly protested to the move to conduct an All India Entrance Test for admission to UG/PG (Under graduate/Post graduate) courses in medical colleges.
Tamil Nadu wants that it should be exempted from the test and allow to continue with its existing system for admission to Under-graduate/Post-graduate medical seats.
She has strongly protested the unilateral decision of the central government to notify National Board of Examination (NBE) to conduct entrance test for courses in medicine.
"The stay against the common entrance test obtained in the Madras High Court holds good until it is vacated or the writ petition is disposed of," Tamil Nadu CM, Jayalalitha said while expressing surprise and distress at the Central Government's unilateral decision.
She also said that the government has reserved 50 percent of its medical post graduate seats for doctors who have completed three years in rural and hills area. If a common entrance test is introduced as we would have to fall in line with regulations of the national test it will be legally difficult to implement these policy initiatives, she said.
