NET Scrapped Amid NEET Row

The cancellation of the UGC-NET examination amid ongoing protests against the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) has provided fresh ammunition for Opposition parties to target the Narendra Modi government ahead of the Parliament session. UGC-NET is a crucial test determining eligibility for assistant professorships in universities and colleges, as well as for awarding research fellowships. On Tuesday, the Education Ministry ordered the exam's cancellation, citing concerns over compromised integrity.

The National Testing Agency (NTA), already under scrutiny for alleged irregularities in NEET, conducted the UGC-NET exam. This year, in an unusual move, the exam was conducted in pen and paper mode. Over 11 lakh students had registered for the test.

Leaders of the INDIA bloc, buoyed by restricting the BJP below the majority mark in recent Lok Sabha polls, have seized this opportunity to criticize the Centre for mismanaging key exams. The UGC-NET exam's cancellation adds to the growing list of grievances against the NTA and the broader handling of educational assessments under the Modi government.

The Opposition's critique focuses on the perceived inefficiency and lack of transparency in the administration of these crucial exams. By highlighting these issues, they aim to galvanize public support and increase pressure on the government during the upcoming Parliament session.

The integrity and reliability of national exams are critical for students' futures, and the Opposition is leveraging the situation to question the Modi government's competence. As the Parliament session approaches, this controversy is likely to fuel intense debates and discussions on educational reforms and the accountability of examination bodies.

This episode underscores the ongoing challenges in managing large-scale exams in India and the political ramifications of any missteps in this area. With public trust at stake, the government faces increasing demands for accountability and reform in the education sector.
