Petition to conduct NEET MDS 2021 counselling without application of reservation for EWS, OBC filed in Supreme Court
NEW DELHI: A writ petition seeking directions to conduct counselling for MDS seats under NEET AIQ without the application of reservation for economically weaker sections (EWS) and other backward classes (OBC) has been filed in the Supreme Court of India, reported the LiveLaw
The petition was filed to challenge the application of reservation for Economically Weaker Sections(EWS) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) in the All India Quota seats for NEET-MDS 2021.
“The petitioners seek directions to the Medical Counselling Committee to proceed with NEET MDS Counselling on the basis of earlier reservation policy && not as per notice dated July 29, 2021, which introduced EWS/OBC quota,” added the report.
The Apex court will consider the petition for admission tomorrow. The Union Government had introduced reservation for EWS/OBC categories in the medical UG and PG seats under the All India Quota in July. The supreme court is hearing the petitions challenging the decision taken by the central government to allow reservation.
The counselling for NEET-MDS was held from August 20 and concluded on October 10, 2020 after much delay. NEET MDS 2021 was conducted last year on December 16, 2020, and the result was announced on December 31, 2020.
