It can clearly understood from the submission that CBSE erred in their calculation, they expected only 10% increase in NEET applications in TN from last year but more than 31% applied for NEET this year.
This raised interesting question Whose mistake is this... The cbse error has caused enough damage at different levels for the 20% of aspirant students that is approx 15000 ~ 20000 who feared been send outside their home state against their choice.
The supreme court instead of pulling cbse head for its mismanagement swiftly passed the burden to tamilnadu students.
Also from the Order of the SC in NEET exam centres case amply proves none of the TN Govt advocates appeared in the case.
A particular case where Kavitha, a woman student in Thavuthayakulam in Ariyalur district of tamilnadu, mortgaged her half sovereign gold earrings to buy tickets for her daughter Hema trip to Ernakulam for NEET.
Kavitha resorted to mortgaging her jewels after her efforts to arrange money went in vain. The money she got after mortgaging her gold ornament would be helpful for travelling, accommodation, and logistics in the neighbouring state. Kavitha’s dream is to make Hema a doctor in her village.
“My daughter Hema aspires to become a doctor and we have encouraged her a lot. The exam centre which is allotted in Kerala came as a distress for our daughter. We knocked on many doors but nobody was ready to help us. Finally, I told my husband, that I would mortgage my earrings to help Hema to write NEET in Ernakulam,” Kavitha added.
The mother said that they have never ventured anywhere outside Tamil Nadu. Kavitha along with her husband and Hema will go to Ernakulam said sources.
