NEW DELHI: “Any judicial intervention would have delayed the admission process for this year,” the Supreme Court said on NEET PG Counselling 2021 verdict.

Justice DY Chandrachud said, “Any judicial intervention would have delayed the admission process for this year. Any change for eligibility qualification would have delayed the process of admission and lead cross litigation,” Live Law reported.

He further said that the “order in Abhay Nath was only clarificatory. Clause 8 would be notified before the beginning of the counselling process and therefore the students were not provided with seat counselling before the start of counselling.”

On EWS quota in NEET PG Counselling, the Supreme Court said, “We've said that the argument of petitioners in validity of EWS not limited to its share in AIQ but also based on the criteria needs to be heard in detail.” Hence, the matter will be heard in the third week of March 2022.

A bench of justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna heard the 10% EWS, 27% OBC reservation case in NEET PG 2021 Counselling on January 5. The top court closed the arguments after two days of hearing and gave its judgement to uphold the quota on January 7, 2022.

Meanwhile, the Medical Counselling Commission (MCC) will release the NEET PG Counselling 2021 round one seat allotment result on January 22 at mcc.nic.in
