NEET spreads its aegis: AYUSH comes under w.e.f. 2018
Moksh – Latest News Update – 23/02. It became official today. Especially relevant for all who wish to make their career in any field of AYUSH, have to go through NEET 2018 Exam.
AYUSH is a body governing admissions to all Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and finally, Homoeopathy.
First, last year, the Ministry of AYUSH had stated that admission to AYUSH would be through NEET.
While some states like Jammu & Kashmir, Maharashtra, West Bengal etc, managed to do so in 2017, other states didn’t.
Now, with the confirmation from CBSE, it has become mandatory.
The Ministry of AYUSH justified its decision by stating that with the growth in popularity of these branches of Alternative Medicine, it is imperative that we improve the quality of the human brain taking these up.

Therefore, we see that the Centre is in the clear mood of consolidating and revamping the field of Medicine. It is a commendable move but still, the dream of becoming a Medico seems elusive.
As we speak, we need more than 600,000 Doctors to fulfill the needs of the Health Care Sector. Yet, the number of seats available in Government Medical Colleges is startlingly low. Furthermore, the cost of doing MBBS from the Private Colleges is staggering.
Consequently, Moksh seeks to make all aspirants aware that though the statistics are discouraging, there are so many great options. Knowing is healthy.
