NEET-PG Counselling Not To Begin Till Supreme Court Ruling On Quotas: Centre

New Delhi: The Supreme Court was assured by the Centre that the counselling process for the NEET-PG will not commence till the top court decides on the percentages of quotas. The Supreme Court will decide on 27 per cent reservation for OBC and 10 per cent for the EWS category in PG All India Quota seats (MBBS/BDS and MD/MS/MDS) from the current academic session.

A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and BV Nagarathna recorded the assurance from Additional Solicitor General (ASG) KM Nataraj, appearing for the Centre, and observed that students will be in serious problem if the counselling process goes ahead as scheduled, reported news agency PTI.

The ASG assurance came after senior advocate Arvind Dattar, appearing for some NEET candidates, mentioned that according to the schedule announced by the Director-General of Health Services, the counselling process for the NEET-PG is to begin on October 25.

According to him, by the time the court decides on the pending batch of petitions, challenging the July 29 notification, introducing the reservation from the academic year, the entire process of admission will be over and serious prejudice would be caused to the students, the agency reported.
