The Union Cabinet has approved the proposal for setting up the National Testing Agency (NTA), which would be responsible for conducting all entrance examinations for higher education institutions across India.
At the initial stage, NTA is likely to conduct national level examinations such as National Eligibility cum Entrance test (NEET), Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main and National Eligibility Test (NET) conducted by CBSE. Going forward it might take over exam conducting responsibility from other entrance exam authorities as well.
NTA is being created to standardise the difficulty level of entrance exams for evaluating aptitude, intelligence and problem-solving abilities of students. It is expected to be beneficial for over 40 lakh students who appear in various entrance examinations every year.
As per sources, the entrance examinations will be held online twice a year. The entrance examinations will also be conducted at various centres in sub-district/ district level and it will introduce training exercise for rural students.
The government will grant Rs. 25 crores to NTA for starting its operation in the first year. It will be chaired by an educationist appointed by Human Resource Development Ministry.
