AIIMS, JIPMER will also come under NEET

Cabinet nod for National Medical Commission Bill
The National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, proposed to be introduced in the current session of Parliament, proposes to replace the Medical Council of India with the National Medical Commission to over see medical education in the country. Under the Bill, the National Medical Commission will have four autonomous Boards — Undergraduate Medical Education Board, Post-Graduate Medical Education Board, Medical Assessment and Rating Board, and Ethics and Medical Registration Board. The final year examination of the MBBS course, to be called the National Exit Test (NEXT), will also be used for entrance into post-graduate medical courses, and act as a screening test for foreign medical graduates, according to an official statement. Apart from NEXT, the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) and common counselling for admissions will be used by all institutions. This includes Institutes of National Importance which have been allowed to follow their own admission procedures so far such as the various All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER), Puducherry and the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh. The Commission would also be responsible for regulating fees and all other charges for 50% of the seats in private medical colleges and deemed universities. This would be an increase from the 40% of seats whose fees were proposed to be controlled under the original NMC Bill, 2017.
