Ready to discuss NEET, Dharmendra Pradhan urges opposition to maintain decorum

Amid controversy over anomalies in the conduct of NEET exams, the expert panel constituted by the central government to look into aspects of reforms of the National Testing Agency (NTA) has sought suggestions from students, parents and other stakeholders. The public can submit their proposals through a dedicated window available on the MyGov website till July 7. The Union Education Ministry said the committee is seeking suggestions, opinions and views from stakeholders, especially students and parents, from June 27 to July 7, 2024. Suggestions can be submitted using the MyGov platform.

The expert panel headed by former ISRO chairman K Radhakrishnan has been directed by the government to make recommendations regarding reforms in the examination process, improvements in data security protocols and the structure and functioning of the National Testing Agency (NTA). While NEET is being investigated for several irregularities including alleged paper leak and anomalies in awarding grace marks, UGC-NET was cancelled after the government found that the “integrity of the exam was compromised”. Two other exams – CSIR-UGC NET and NEET PG – were also cancelled as a precautionary measure. All these exams are conducted by the NTA.

The panel also includes former AIIMS Delhi director Randeep Guleria, Hyderabad Central University vice-chancellor BJ Rao, professor emeritus in the department of civil engineering at IIT Madras K Ramamurthy, PeopleStrong co-founder and Karmayogi Bharat board member Pankaj Bansal, Aditya Mittal of student affairs, and MoE joint secretary Govind Jaiswal, dean of IIT Delhi.
