EWS and OBC Reversion in Postgraduate Medical Admission has been maintained by the Supreme Court (PG Admission). This verdict was made on Friday by a bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna. The ABC's legality has been upheld, according to the AC. Existing norms have also been preserved in EWS, ensuring that students do not experience any difficulties in obtaining admission for the current academic year. The court stated that the Pandey committee's recommendations will be implemented beginning next year. The bench has decided to have the petition's final hearing in the third week of March. The validity of the Pandey committee's EWS criteria will then be determined.
The allocation of 27% of seats for Other Backward Classes (OBC) and 10% of seats for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in All India Quota seats for postgraduate medical courses has been challenged. The court had delayed its verdict on Thursday after hearing the parties in the case. In the All India Quota seats for postgraduate medical courses, the petitions challenged a 27% reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and a 10% reservation for EWS. Let us remind you that out of the students picked through NEET, 15% of MBBS seats and 50% of MS and MD seats are filled from the All India Quota.
The central government's Solicitor General Tushar Mehta stated that the OBC quota is provided 27% of the seats in central universities, while the EWS quota is allocated 10%. From January 2019, it will be in effect. UPSC also has a quota system. In this circumstance, no seats in the general category have been lost, but the total number of seats has increased by 25%. Reservations in PG courses are not prohibited.
The federal government stated during the hearing on Thursday that therapy should be permitted to begin. The petitioners, on the other hand, were against the quota. The petitioner had objected to the Rs 8 lakh requirement for the EWS category, claiming that a limit of Rs 2.5 lakh may be set instead.
