Followed by a month-long delay within the Governor giving consent to a Bill passed by the Assembly to provide 7.5 percent reservation to government school students in MBBS admissions, the Tamil Nadu government Thursday chose to take an executive route to actualize the enactment and issued an order.
After there was a delay in clearing the Bill, unanimously passed by the Assembly in September, the ruling AIADMK and the main opposition DMK had been encouraging Senator Banwarilal Purohit for a prompt decision.
A group of cabinet ministers met the Governor’s final week with the same request. Be that as it may, on Thursday evening, the government issued an order to actualize 7.5 percent horizontal reservation inside the existing reservation system.
According to the order, 7.5 per cent reservation on preferential basis will be ensured for students who have studied from Class VI to Class XII in government-run schools in admission to MBBS, BDS, BSMS, BAMS, BUMS and BHMS courses if they have cleared NEET.he order said the horizontal reservation shall be provided in each category of vertical reservation followed in Tamil Nadu from the 2020-21 academic year.
