"This assent would enable the state to continue its existing fair and transparent system of admission to medical and dental colleges in the state", Chief Minister K Palaniswami said in a letter to Modi. The of tamilnadu had passed the Tamil Nadu Admissions to Post Graduate Courses in Medicine and Dentistry Bill, 2017 and Tamil Nadu Admissions to MBBS and BDS Courses Bill, 2017, apparently aimed at bypassing the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test.
