Government is going to increase the creamy layer, ban on NEET counseling for 4 weeks
The central government has told the Supreme Court that the NEET PG counseling process will not start until the central government re-decides the limit of Rs 8 lakh for EWS. The Central Government has told the Supreme Court that it will reconsider the limit of Rs 8 lakh fixed for EWS. The decision will be taken after reconsidering in four weeks and till then the counseling of NEET will be stalled. The Supreme Court has taken this statement of the Central Government on record and has fixed January 6 for the next hearing.
The Supreme Court had asked the question
The Supreme Court had raised questions many times during the hearing of this case. The Supreme Court questioned the central government as to what exercise it has done for the criterion fixed for income less than Rs 8 lakh per annum to be declared as Economically Weaker Section (EWS). The Supreme Court has asked the Center to explain what is the basis behind the criteria that have been set. The Supreme Court had asked the central government whether you will reconsider the criteria that you have set for an income of Rs 8 lakh? The Central Government had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court saying that the criteria set by the Central Government for this are not arbitrary but have been discussed in detail before the decision. The Central Government, by issuing a notification on July 29, has decided to give 27 percent reservation to OBCs and 10 percent to economically weaker students under All India Quota in the NEET exam to be held for admission to medical courses. The decision of the Central Government has been challenged in the Supreme Court.
Admission delayed due to lack of counseling
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said in the Supreme Court on Thursday that we have received instructions that the central government will reconsider the criteria of Rs 8 lakh fixed for EWS. We will formulate it again, the new decision that will be taken will be in four weeks and till then there will be no counseling. During this, the counsel for the petitioner said that the criteria to be fixed for EWS should be implemented from next year as there is delay in admission due to non-counselling. The Supreme Court told the Solicitor General that you see the option. Do whatever you want to do but will it be implemented from next year. On this, the Solicitor General said that it may be difficult for the government because whatever happens, it will be under the amendment of the constitution. On this, the Supreme Court said that whatever you do, do it under the law and four weeks time is not less. We are concerned about medical admission.
