    Today, the Supreme Court has directed the Tamil Nadu government to conduct medical counseling under NEET 2017. This was expected as interpretation of IMC Act 2016. Moreover a state cannot promulgate an ordinance against the Law of the Land in India. If any change or exemption is really needed, it is the Central Govt. /Parliament to act accordingly. Considering vast differences in nature of imparting education in different states and territories in India, backwardness in rural areas, poverty posing challange to education and expression of merits, linguistic and cultural differences and moreover education being a joint subject, it is now the Centre / Parliament to act accordingly to satisfy the need of the nation.

      Central government with their hinduthuva policies will never understand the plight of the rural people. After all they are lowly placed untouchables. Ruling tamilnadu government worried about theircommissions only. POOR TAMILNADU PEOPLE caught between the devil and deep sea.
