NEETI 2018:The Centre is looking forward to consulting all the states about the minimum weightage for NEETI from 2018. All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) will soon write to all the states on this regard. However, strong protests are happening about the proposal in Tamil Nadu and Bengal states.
Generally, in each state, the institutions held their tests. To replace these tests conducted by other institutions NEETI (National Entrance Examination for Technical Institutions) will be implemented from next year. The states can decide on their own whether to consider NEETI results as sole requirement for admission or as a minimum requirement along with the scores in board exams.
An official from AICTE stated “But some states are still having some issues about completely accepting this system. So the AICTE will consult all the states before taking an ultimate decision about the weightage that should be given to NEETI.”
After meeting the council last month, they approved NEETI from the next year 2018 onwards. However, the states that are against this implementation are Bengal and TamilNadu, and the council overruled them.
As the minimum weightage for NEETI is also a political issue Union, HRD Ministry admonished the Council to handle the matter heedfully.
Concerned about the two states all the admissions into the 90 undergraduate engineering institutions in the Bengal state are done based on Bengal Joint Entrance Examination which has been conducting very well.
On the other side, Tamil Nadu admissions are entirely based on the Class XII board marks as the state government doesn’t want their students to experience the stress of Entrance tests. UGC (University Grants Commission) will decide on the rules of NEETI and release the official notification soon to all the deemed universities asking to make the admission based on NEETI performance.
