NEET Bulletin: Rohtak: The government medical colleges in the Haryana state are likely to see MBBS seat surge from 600 to 850 in connection to accommodate the 10 percent quota for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).
Medical Dialogues had reported that earlier this year, on January 9, the Parliament had passed the Constitution (124th Amendment) Bill 2019 to help the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) of Indian society. The bill focused on providing 10 percent reservation in jobs and higher education to the general category poor.
To implement EWS quota, the Medical institutions had been directed to increase 10 percent MBBS seats at their institutes so the other categories won’t get affected.
To facilitate the decision, the MCI had issued a circular to respective medical education departments, medical universities of the states running GMCs under its jurisdiction; directing them to furnish necessary information in the given format so that the 10 % EWS quota can be implemented at these concerned institutes.
