Centre ready for 50% AIQ seats in MBBS after intimating the Supreme Court, Health News, ET HealthWorld


Centre ready for 50% AIQ seats in MBBS after intimating the Supreme CourtChennai: The Centre is ready to implement 50% OBC reservation under All India Quota (AIQ) to medical admission, but only after placing it before the Supreme Court.

A submission to this effect was made before Madras high court in response to a contempt plea by DMK against the Union health secretary and others for non-implementation of a July 27, 2020 HC order granting 69% reservation in state contributed medical and dental seats to AIQ.

A committee has given the options of following state reservation or central reservations but subject to parliament enactments on these seats of state, the Centre told the court.

“We are ready to implement state reservation on AIQ but only after placing it before the Supreme Court in the Saloni kumari case,” it added.

According to the contempt petition, the July 27 HC order held that there was no legal or constitutional impediment to extend benefit of 69% reservation followed in TN in the state contributed seats to the AIQ for medical admission.

The court directed the Centre to set up a committee comprising the TN health secretary and secretaries of the MCI and dental council, among others, to finalise the manner in which such OBC reservation is to be applied to AIQ seats.

The authorities failed to make TN health secretary of Tamil Nadu and DGHS, members of the panel, the petitioner said.
