Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Saturday announced the formation of a high-level committee led by retired judge AK Rajan to assess the impact of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) on medical college admissions over the last few years in the state. The committee of educationalists and government officials will thoroughly study the impact of NEET on medical college admissions of students in government schools and economically weaker sections of the society.

The committee will study how many students, specifically those who studied in government schools and those from economically weaker backgrounds, have lost medical seats due to NEET in Tamil Nadu in the last few years. The press note added that if the committee finds that NEET has affected these students, it will also propose alternate admission procedures, as well as the legal scope to implement them.
