The medical council of India (MCI) has barred students who have completed class 12th examination through open and distance mode from attending medical Entrance Examination. (NEET).
The National Institute of Open schooling under the human resource development (HRD) ministry said the decision will affect thousand of students to pursue the medical education.
More than 2lakhs students register every year with NIOS and close to 3,000 had registered for NEET exam in 2017. Across India the number is higher out of 3,000 student 864 qualified the tst too. So its unfair to bar them from NEET examination.
Finally, the HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and Union health minister JP Nadda has decided to hold a meeting on Wednesday and take a call on the issue.
