NEET PG counselling 2021 and NEET UG counselling 2021 can now commence as per the existing reservation policy, including 27% for OBC and 10% for EWS, the apex court said. A bench of justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna today said, “Validity of OBC reservation in NEET PG and UG has been upheld.” Justice DY Chandrachud says, "We accept the recommendation of the Pandey committee to apply the criteria from next year. Counselling shall be conducted by giving effect to the reservation.”

A bench of justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna asked the parties to file their written submissions for consideration. "We have been hearing this matter for two days, we must start counselling in national interest," the bench said.

Senior Advocate Arvind Datar reiterated that the basis of the Centre's criteria for determining EWS for the purpose of reservation in the NEET AIQ - cut-off income of Rs 8 lakh and of property assets - is completely "arbitrary".

While Solicitor General Tushar Mehta requested the Court to allow commencement of NEET PG counselling. Senior Advocate Shyam Divan argued that introducing OBC, EWS quota in July after the issuance of exam notification amounted to changing the rule midway, as per Live Law. He also argued that PG admissions must be totally merit-based and reservations must be minimal.

Advocate Archana Pathak Dave for the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA), which has sought to intervene in the case, said, "NEET PG counselling has to start immediately because 3rd year residents are about to pass out in four months. We'll be left with 33% of the workforce. With 3rd wave coming we need doctors."

The Supreme Court was hearing a batch of pleas challenged the July 29 notice providing 27% reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBC) and 10% for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) category in 15% UG and 50% PG All India Quota seats (MBBS or BDS and MD, MS, MDS) with effect from the academic session 2021-22.

NEET PG Supreme Court hearing

NEET PG Supreme Court hearing live: On the EWS and OBC quotas, there are three broad strands of arguments: 

  • One section has opposed both OBC and EWS quota. Their main argument is that both quotas were introduced in state AIQ seats in July 2021, long after the NEET UG and NEET PG 2021 exam bulletins were out. The new quotas change the rules of the "game" mid-way and that is unfair. 
  • Another section has argued that the EWS quota's income limit, Rs 8 lakh annual income is totally arbitrary. The additional criteria of property will be hard to prove or find support documents for at this late stage. Alterative income limits of Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 5 lakh have been suggested.
  • The section favouring OBC quota has argued that OBC reservation was not implemented in AIQ and that seats have effectively been denied to this group . 
  • Solicitor General of India, on behalf of the Centre, has argued that the OBC and EWS quotas have been introduced keeping social justice and equity in mind.
