President signs NEET-UG ordinance; decks cleared for admissions

President Pranab Mukherjee has signing the controversial ordinance exempting state governments from the requirement of conducting the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance test this year. 

President signed the ordinance after seeking detailed clarifications on the scope of the executive order from the Health Ministry and on sound legal opinion. The ordinance comes days after the Supreme Court had mandated the conduct of single-window MBBS and BDS exams for all private and government institutions this year.

The main purpose of the Ordinance is to provide a firm statutory status to the concept of Uniform Entrance Examination for all undergraduate and postgraduate admissions in medical or dental colleges while providing a relaxation to the state governments in relation to only UG admissions for this year [2016-17] in view of their difficulties.
