The Tamil Nadu government will introduce a bill during the coming assembly session to cancel entrance examinations for professional courses, based on the recommendations of the expert committee headed by Dr M Ananthakrishnan.

The expert committee submitted its recommendations to CM M Karunanidhi on Monday, the official release said.

During the Governor's address, the government had promised to appoint a committee to examine cancellation of entrance examinations to professional courses. It said the entrance examinations were causing mental stress to students, besides leading to considerable financial burden.

The government said rural people and the poor were deprived of equal opportunities during entrance examinations.

The government constituted an experts committee on July 7 under M Ananthakrishnan, former Vice-Chancellor of Anna University, to examine the issue and give its recommendations.

The next assembly session will begin on December 4.
