New Delhi: Counselling for Post-Graduate (PG) Medical courses to allocate seats to successful candidates for the 2021-22 academic session will begin on Jan. 12, Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said yesterday.

The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the Centre to go ahead with counselling for NEET-PG and UG Medical courses by upholding the Government’s decision to introduce 27% quota for OBC within All-India Quota (AIQ) seats, and permitted 10% reservation for economically weaker sections among the general category to be applied based on the criteria laid down in January 2019. This came after months of protests by Resident Doctors across the nation against the delay in NEET-PG counselling.

“As assured by the Ministry of Health to the Resident Doctors, following the order of the Supreme Court, NEET-PG counselling is being started by the Medical Counselling Committee from Jan. 12, 2022,” Mandaviya said in a tweet in Hindi.
