Karnataka plans on an Anti-NEET bill like Tamilnadu


On June 19, DK Shivakumar, the deputy chief minister of Karnataka, informed members of the media that the state administration was thinking of doing away with the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET). “We are talking about taking the Tamil Nadu route,” he stated. We are against NEET, a major scandal. Although our people have constructed institutions around the state, they are unable to give places to students from their areas. This has to be discussed nationally. 

The Karnataka government has taken a stand in reaction to the nationwide outcry against NEET following revelations of alleged question paper leaks, marking inconsistencies, and arbitrary administrative choices that have a detrimental effect on students. In addition to parents and other accused parties, the Economics Offences Unit (EOU) of the Bihar police has now charged ten medical candidates for purchasing NEET question papers in advance for between Rs 30 and Rs 50 lakhs.
