NEET PG 201: updates after court verdict on Friday
One of the most challenging and complicated issues of 2021 includes NEET Admission process, based on NEET 2021. The most demanding exam in the country, for both UG and PG medical aspirants has occupied the major news columns on almost all days in the past year. Even though the result was declared after conducting the exam successfully, it came into headlines for the Supreme Court case on the reservation policies made for the exam.
NEET PG exam 2021 was conducted on September 11. The exam itself had faced many problems, which forced the authorities to postpone it for two times. At the time of exams, the authorities thought to begin the counseling process, in October itself, after the revealing of scores. But, even after more than two months from score reveal, the counseling process is still under suspense, mainly because of the court proceedings. The delay has even led to many protests, mainly from the resident doctors across the country, even by cutting down their regular hospital services.
Apart from the reservations given in previous years, the authorities had imposed a new reservation category for both OBC and EWS students in 2021-22 academic year. The OBC were granted for 27% and EWS for 10% reservation, accordingly in this year. This reservation scheme made many chaoses to the government from experts and public, which eventually led to a case in the Supreme Court of India. The Court who heard many statements supporting as well as opposing the policy, has now made a verdict on the constitutional validity of OBC reservation for 27% in NEET 2021.
The major opposing argument for the reservation was for the criteria given for EWS category, which filter out people with less than 8 lakh annual income as the eligible ones. The opposing people stated that the criteria will go against the nature of admission process, which is said to be as a merit based one. But however, the SC has now come with a verdict on January 7th which gave validity for OBC reservation. The court further opined that completing counseling speedily is very important, which will affect the lives of many thousands of students.
As a follow up of this court verdict the Health Minister of India, Mansukh Manviya has now stated that the NEET PG counseling process will begin shortly from January 12th onwards. The minister, through his official twitter handle, as also said that completing PG counseling will also accelerate the COVID 19 war of the country. Now, according to the court verdict, the OBC will get 27% reservation in All India Quota of seats, for both UG and PG courses. The medical colleges will provide 15% and 50% of available seats in AIQ, respectively for UG and PG courses.
AIQ , which was made under the Supreme Court advises in 1986, is a very supporting factor for students to get merit based admission chances, without facing issues of domicile matters. Also, it enables students to pursue medical education from any state of India, according to their merit chances and interests. Along with OBC reservation, the AIQ offer 15 reservation for SC and 7.5% for ST, since from 2007.
