The NEET dress code is a measure to prevent the use of unfair means in the highly competitive medical entrance test. In 2015, the Supreme Court had to scrap the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) -- a precursor to the NEET -- due to large-scale cheating. Restrictions on the size of buttons, sleeves and shoe-soles are all geared toward preventing the use of modern technology in cheating.
