Allow NEET MDS counselling to be conducted virtually: Health Ministry to SC

The report further states that the Ministry of Health has requested the Supreme Court to allow them to conduct NEET MDS counselling 2021 virtually within 4 weeks with an existing reservation. It has been informed that the delay in the NEET MDS 2021 counselling was caused due to the lack of clarity on the issue of OBC reservation in state medical colleges under AIQ scheme.

Earlier, on July 29, the central government approved 27% reservation to OBC (Non-creamy layer) as per Central List of OBC and 10% reservation to EWS category as per Central Government norms in All India.

NEET MDS 2021 counselling will be conducted for admission to 50% AIQ, all seats in deemed/central universities, ESIC and AFMS institutes.

Delay in NEET MDS 2021 Counselling

The petition on NEET MDS 2021 counselling was earlier filed by Advocates Tanvi Dubey and Charu Mathurin highlighted an “unjust and infinite delay” caused by MCC. A division bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and MR Shah had observed that the delay in the NEET MDS 2021 counselling is affecting the entire year of the dental candidates.

NEET MDS 2021 was conducted last year on December 16, 2020, and the result was announced on December 31, 2020. However, the counselling of the postgraduate dental exam was delayed for months.
