New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear matter related to the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in connection with NEET-PG admissions on Wednesday,


The Centre had on Monday requested the Supreme Court to schedule a hearing in a matter related to the EWS quota in connection with the NEET-PG admissions, citing “some urgency”.

Large-scale protests have been held by resident doctors of various hospitals under the banner of the Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association (FORDA) in Delhi and other parts of the country over a delay in the NEET-PG counselling, which has been postponed due to the Centre deciding to revisit the criteria for the determination of the EWS quota.

In its affidavit filed in the apex court, the Centre has said it has decided to accept the recommendations of a three-member panel to retain the current gross annual family income limit for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) at Rs 8 lakh or less.
