Postgraduate medical and dental seat aspirants staged a protest in Bangalore on Sunday pressing for the need to have one common examination for admission in medical and dental colleges across the country. They alleged that there was corruption in the seat selection process and stated that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) would bring in transparency in the process.
They also protested against the alleged corruption in the admission process across the country due to multiple examinations conducted by various private examination bodies and colleges.
Pritam Kitoy, a graduate from Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Belgaum, said, “We have come here in support of NEET. Almost 90,000 students appeared for NEET last year and private colleges have filed a case against NEET.” “NEET offers thousands of seats under the umbrella of one exam, offering more opportunities nationally for deserving candidates,” said Madhumita S., a medical graduate from Tamil Nadu.
