Anna University Vice Chancellor D Viswanathan on Monday said the University would require a minimum of 40 days for the successful conduct of Common entrance Test (CET) for admissions to professional colleges.
Reacting to the Madras High court verdict which struck down a recent Tamil Nadu government’s legislation abolishing CET, he said that the University would require a minimum forty days for setting question papers and making other arrangements.
Stating that he was not aware of the full details of the judgement, he said “if the government gives clearance for holding the CET then we will be able to do it.” “Even in the forty days’ time we should do everything very fast”, he said however maintaining that there was no problem in holding the CET.
When pointed out that earlier the University used to start the process in January, he said “Now we will do it fast.” The Bench said it was difficult to accept the legislation to abolish CET only for state board students on the premise that scrapping the test will help rural students.
