TN Governor Gives Permission for 7.5% Quota Bill to Govt Students Clearing NEET

The Governor of Tamil Nadu, Banwarilal Purohit has given his permission to a bill considering 7.5 percent reservation to government school students who have passed the NEET exam. Recently, the state government took the executive route to execute the quota regime from the current 2020-21 academic year itself and issued a GO to promote it. A day after the state government’s move, the Raj Bhavan said the Governor has permitted the Bill.

The Governor asked the legal opinion of the Solicitor General of India via a letter dated 26th September. On 29th October, the Governor received the opinion. An official statement released from the Raj Bhavan said, ‘As soon as the opinion was received, honorable Governor has given assent to the Bill.’ Despite the allegations by opposition parties including the DMK that Purohit postponed clearing the Bill, the Raj Bhavan made it clear that the Bill was approved soon after the receipt of legal opinion assumes importance.
