OBC Quota In Medical Seats is applicable Only in central Institutions not in State Government Colleges – Government Informs HC. The Centre has informed the Madras High Court it is unlikely to admit Other Backward Community (OBC) students under All India Quota (AIQ) medical seats in all government institutions unless the Supreme Court comprehensively settles the pending issue. Since 1986, OBC medical aspirants were being accommodated in AIQ seats in central institutions only, and not in all state government colleges, it said. for more details visit Hindiexamsdaily website.
Taking a dig at political parties pleas before the court, the Centre said: “The method has been followed even when most of the petitioners (political parties) were in power through their alliance in the past.” A submission to this effect was made by the Centre, in response to a batch of PILs filed by major political parties, including the DMK, AIADMK and PMK. Pointing out that AIQ pool seats comprise 15 per cent of all MBBS seats and 50 per cent of PG medical seats surrendered by state governments to the Centre, these parties have been demanding 50 per cent reservation of seats for OBC students, as per the 69 per cent reservation formula in Tamil Nadu.
The Central Government said that for SC/ST students, it has been extending the stipulated percentage of quota in all medical institutions.
“The present method of selection has been followed even when most of the petitioners (political parties) were in power through their alliances in the past,” it said and stated that Saloni Kumar’s case had been filed seeking 27% reservations for OBCs in All India quota seats in non-central institutions too as it was being provided in central institutions.
The number of seats could be increased proportionately with the cooperation of all States and on implementation of the State-specific reservation policy for SCs, STs and OBCs, the State governments would have to contribute to All India quota seat category wise, including the seats reserved for the physically challenged, by maintaining a reservation roster at college/State level, it concluded.
