NEET PG Counselling 2021: SC to continue hearing on OBC, EWS quota

NEET PG Counseling 2021: After adjourning the hearing on Wednesday, the Supreme Court will continue to hear a plea regarding EWS, OBC quota in NEET-PG counseling today i.e. January 6. On January 5, the highest court heard the arguments of senior lawyers Arvind Datar and Shyam Divan.

Appearing before the petitioners, senior lawyer Shyam Divan argued that the new reservation system should come into effect from next year. He referred to the July 29 notification for implementing EWS and OBC quotas and said it looks like “changing the rules halfway through” as the reservation policy was put in place after the exams were notified.

A bench of judges DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna said the hearing in the case would continue on Thursday, after which it will pass some injunctions.

The NEET-PG candidates, who had challenged a 29 July 2021 notice for the implementation of the OBC and EWS quotas of the 2021-22 academic year, opposed the government’s justification to increase the income criteria of Rs 8 lakh and said no investigation has been done. executed.

Appearing before the Centre, Advocate General Tushar Mehta said: “We, as a government, would request the court not to accept any position whereby OBC or EWS, both before and after the exercise, are deprived of anything that is legitimately due is up to them.”

He said the quota notification was dated January 2019 and the EWS reservation has already been applied to many appointments and withdrawals.
