NEET PG Counseling 2021: What is the bone of contention?
The central government had approved 27 per cent reservation for OBCs and 10 per cent for EWS in medical admission. Under this, a provision was made to get an EWS reservation for those with an annual income of Rs 8 lakh. The Supreme Court had asked the central government to reconsider the matter. After this a panel of three members was constituted. The Center said that as per the suggestion of the panel, the limit of Rs 8 lakh is appropriate. Subsequently, the notification of the Center and the Medical Counseling Committee (MCC) dated July 29, under which the candidates had to provide 27 per cent reservation to OBCs and 10 per cent reservation in All India Quota medical seats to EWS students, were challenged in the Supreme Court by the candidates. Since then the matter was stuck in the court.
