“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.
