SC Allows 10% For Ews In NEET-PG Admissions And A 27% Quota For Obcs,

The Supreme Court has allowed admissions in NEET-PG with a 27% quota for OBC's and 10% for EWS for 2021-2022. It has also accepted the recommendations of the Ajay Bhushan Pandey committee and stuck to 8 Lakh criteria for identifying Economically Weaker Sections for the current admission cycles.

A bench of justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna had concluded hearing the matter and counselling for NEET-PG admissions had remained suspended due to the petitions filed.


The Ajay Bhushan Pandey Committee, also comprising Member Secretary ICSSR V K Malhotra and Principal Economic Advisor Sanjeev Sanyal, was set up to analyse the feasibility of the Rs 8 lakh limit after the SC in previous hearings sought to know what exercise was undertaken before fixing the limit. The committee recommended retaining the Rs 8 lakh limit for NEET-PG (AIQ) for the current admission cycle and adopting recommendations on how to apply the income limit from the next admission cycle.
