NEW DELHI: The Rajasthan High Court has cancelled all the PG medical/dental admission granted in the round one of Rajasthan NEET PG/MDS counselling 2020.

The single bench of Justice S P Sharma issued the order on a bunch of petitions filed by Kamlendra Singh and others.

Earlier, the Medical Counselling of India (MCI) had issued a letter to all the state medical colleges asking to include 89 seats in the Postgraduate for EWS category, However, the SMS Medical College authority had released the round one result on April 26, without including the EWS seats.
