The Tamil Nadu assembly passed the NEET Exemption Bill once again without accepting the suggestions offered by Governor RN Ravi a few weeks ago. The governor had returned the Bill to the assembly for its reconsideration after keeping it pending for around four months. Even the Supreme Court had held the NEET scheme to be in complete conformity with the Constitution as it addresses the issues of social justice.
A constitution bench of Justice Arun Mishra, Justice Indra Banerjee, Justice Vineet Saran, Justice M. R. Shah & Justice Aniruddha Bose has held that the MCI regulation allowing in-service reservation is unconstitutional. That power belongs to the state.
