AMU Medical College MBBS/BDS not included in NEET

The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Medical College has been kept out of the NEET 2013 (National Eligibilty cum Entrance Test) which is to be organized by CBSE for common medical entrance to all colleges in India. It must be noted that the AMU rejected the Ministry of HRD proposal of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2013) for medical courses admission.

Central Universities Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University, both are minority
institutions and are eligible for 50% seats to be reserved for minorities and Internal Candidates. Administrations of both universities have sought clarification that becoming part of NEET will not mean giving up quota for minorities.

"The decision is a notable step," said Prof Razaullah Khan, President of the Millat Bedari
Muhim Committee (MBMC), Aligarh. He added that if AMU would go on with the NEET, it would interfere in the internal matter of university which cannot be tolerated at any cost." He was addressing an emergency meeting of MBMC called to hall the decision of AMU Executive council at Media Centre Aligarh.

Member of AMU court & Eminent scientist Prof. Humayun Murad pointed out that AMU is historical university with a special purpose to educate Muslims and to achieve that target, it should be declared a minority institutions by legislation.

Admission to AMU Medical College for MBBS/BDS will now be carried out by the AMU itself. While the other governmental colleges shall continue with NEET.
