NEET Dress Code – The Controversy

In 2017, a number of NEET aspirants from across the country were subjected to harassment in a bid to follow the dress code designed to crack down on cheating and malpractices. In some cases, if the metal detector beeped due to a button or a hook of the undergarment, students were turned away from pre-entry security checkpoints. In a few cases, students were left with no option but to buy new clothes from nearby shops to be able to make it to the examination hall. Prior to the NEET examination, the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE had released a list which mentioned the dress code to be followed, along with permitted and unpermitted clothing and accessories. The list did not categorically mention that jeans with metal buttons, trousers with long pockets or undergarments with hooks were not allowed. The National Human Rights Commission or NHRC got involved and pulled up CBSE in the light of cases of alleged harassment. After the unfortunate turn of events, the National Testing Agency or NTA took the matter in its own hands and issued a proper guideline which needs to be followed during the NEET entrance exams. The guideline does not only give clarity on the dress code to be followed but also mentions the items that will be and won’t be allowed in the examination halls. NEET Dress Code Controversy The rules and regulations framed to maintain a uniform NEET dress code can be overwhelming for some candidates. To be able to remember and follow each and every rule on the day of a crucial NEET 2021 exam can be a bit of a task in itself. No doubt this has led to micromanagement which resulted in alleged cases of harassment in the past. However, the new NTA rules have been framed to avoid any such situation from arising again. Hence, candidates are expected to abide by them.
