There will be single test-National Eligibility cum Entrance Exam (NEET) for admissions to medical and dental courses across the country, as President Pranab Mukherjee has given nod to two bills recently passed by Parliament in this regard. 
Mr Mukherjee has given assent to Indian Medical Council Amendment Bill 2016 and Dentists Amendment Bill 2016.  These Bills were passed by Rajya Sabha on 1st of this month to pave way for the NEET, which is designed to curb corruption by bringing in transparency, checking multiplicity of exams and to stop



exploitation of students in counselling. 
The bills seek to amend the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 and the Dentists Act, 1948 to replace the ordinances that were promulgated in May to keep state boards out of the ambit of National Eligibility Entrance Examination, NEET for admission to MBBS and BDS courses for this year. 
The Bills provide for conduct of uniform entrance examination for admission to all medical educational institutions at the undergraduate and post-graduate courses. These Bills were passed by the Lok Sabha last month.
