RESERVATION ON OBC & EWS FOR NEET EXAMINATION
On 07th January, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has announced to provide 27% reservation for OBC (Other Backward Class) and 10% reservation for EWS (Economically Weaker Section) in AIQ (All India Quota) for medical courses. This reservation is applied to both undergraduate (MBBS, BDS) and postgraduate.
Our Government has taken a landmark decision for providing 27% reservation for OBCs and 10% reservation for Economically Weaker Section in the All India Quota Scheme for undergraduate and postgraduate medical/dental courses from the current academic year. https://t.co/gv2EygCZ7N— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) July 29, 2021
Let me help you understand in detail. The AIQ consists of 15% of the total available Undergraduate seats and 50% of the total available post-graduate seats in government medical colleges.
Initially, there were reservations only for SC and ST in the AIQ scheme. SC and ST have 15% and 7.5% reservations respectively. Later, with the Central Educational Institutions Act, central Universities were started providing 27% reservations for OBC. But this was not implemented in the state colleges.
This means that now we will have a 27% reservation for OBC and 10% for EWS in state medical colleges. Under this reservation, around 1500 OBC students in MBBS and 2500 OBC students in Post-Graduate will get benefits every year.
And for EWS students it would be 550 and 1000 students for MBBS and Post-graduate respectively.
