NET likely to be introduced in 2019-'20: AICTE official

With some states opposing introduction of National Eligibility Test for admission to engineering courses, it is unlikely to be held next year but could become a reality in 2019-'20, a top AICTE official said on Monday.

Though the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) had approved a single entrance examination (NET) for admission to all engineering colleges from this year, some states had opposed and as a result it had to be deferred, AICTE Chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe told reporters here.

The Council would hold discussions with state governments on NET and put forward the finer points and its advantages for the locals, who would remain top in their respective states and can gain entry into IITs also, he said.
