TN Govt to move SC on CET: Jaya
Chennai, Mar 1 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu Government will move the Supreme Court, seeking a stay on the Madras High Court order striking down the ''Tamil Nadu Regulation of Admissions in Professional Courses Act 2006,'' which sought to do away with Common Entrance Test (CET) for state board students for admission to professional courses.
In a statement here, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa said her government will move the Supreme Court for a stay on the Madras High Court order.
''Every effort will be made to get a quick decision. Based on the Supreme Court's order, further announcement will be made by my government on the question of operationalising the order of the High Court to hold a CET for the academic year 2006-07,'' she said.
Ms Jayalalithaa said she understood the anxiety of parents and students to know the exact position on the system to be followed for the year 2006-07 for admission to professional courses.
''Keeping the need to resolve this anxiety amid parents and students uppermost in mind, my government will take early steps to set out the policy on admissions for professional courses for the academic year 2006-07,'' she added.
The Chief Minister said in bringing about momentous change to benefit the common people, hurdles might have to be crossed.
''But this will not deter our resolve to implement measures to benefit the poor and needy in my beloved state.'' MORE UNI AKN/WS GM RR RN1642
