NEET-PG counseling likely to start from next week

After getting the green signal from the Supreme Court for NEET PG counseling 2021, it can now start from next week. Sources have given information about this. In fact, in the matter of NEET PG 2021 counseling and reservation, the Supreme Court, while giving a big decision, has approved NEET PG counseling 2021. That is, now the counseling of NEET PG can be started for Medical PG Admission 2021. In such a situation, according to news agency ANI, counseling can start from next week.

Earlier, the resident doctors had gone on strike to protest the delay in NEET-PG counselling. Their 14-day strike ended last Friday when the Union Health Ministry assured to come up with the NEET-PG counseling program soon after the court hearing on January 6. The Resident Doctors’ Association had also demanded quashing of FIRs lodged against several protesting doctors. The government had accepted this demand as well.

At the same time, the Supreme Court has also given a decision on OBC reservation and EWS quota in NEET PG 2021. The Supreme Court upheld the validity of 27 per cent reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBC) students and 10 per cent reservation for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).

What did the court say in the decision?

A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna said that the counseling for NEET PG for the year 2021-22 will be based on the earlier criteria. The bench said that a decision on the validity of the income criteria of eight lakh for EWS in the coming years will be taken only after hearing the petitions. The bench has fixed March 5 for hearing the petitions.

What was the whole matter?

The central government had decided to give 27 percent OBC and 10 percent EWS reservation in NEET PG 2021. But the notice regarding this reservation was issued in July, when the applications for NEET PG 2021 were closed. The exam was to be held in April, but due to Corona, the exam was postponed. Then it was taken in September 2021. Students were protesting that OBC and EWS reservation should not be implemented from this academic session i.e. Medical PG Admission 2021.
