Let us continue without NEET, JK tells GoI

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir has strongly pitched for continuation of the existing state-level entrance examination for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses instead of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), the government said on Wednesday.
In an official handout issued here, the government said the state’s repetitive and member Parliament Fayaz Ahmad Mir told the All Party Meeting, which was convened by the Finance Minister of India Arun Jaitley at New Delhi, flagged the concerns of the state government on the issue.
“Mir, who attended the meeting on the directions of the chief ninister, told the forum that while other states have concerns like language and syllabus, Jammu and Kashmir has a strong case on the basis of its special status and it should be allowed to continue the established process for selection to these professional courses,” the handout said.
Mir, it added, said Jammu and Kashmir Board of Professional Entrance Examinations Act-2002 accords functional autonomy to BOPEE to conduct the entrance test in a transparent manner free from any external interference and the system put in place by the J&K government needs to be continued.
