Ensure OBC reservation in All India Quota in NEET PG this year: TN student association
The 27 per cent OBC reservation for OBC students in PG medical seats held last year was not followed by the Central government, the students pointed out
The Tamil Nadu Medical Students’ Association has issued a statement demanding that the Central Government provide reservation in NEET PG for students belonging to Other Backward Classes ‘atleast from this year’. The Association pointed out that the NEET PG examination for PG admissions for 2021 is scheduled to take place on April 18.
“The 27 per cent OBC reservation for OBC students in PG medical seats alloted by the state to the All India Quota allotted in the NEET PG exams for PG medical admissions held last year was not followed by the Central government,” the Association reminded.
“The case is pending in the Supreme Court and the Court has directed the central government to appoint a committee to resolve the OBC reservation issue in NEET PG. Almost six months have passed and the government has not announced whether such a committee has been set up or submitted a report. And yet, the exam has been scheduled for April 18.” the students said.
