NEET PG 2018: Supreme Court stays Karnataka Seat Allotment Process

By: Sakshi Awasthi on March 28, 2018

Supreme Court of India yesterday stayed the notification issued by the Karnataka Government which mandates a ten-year study in the state clause for seats allocated under the NEET Post Graduate Counselling. According to the notification issued, the court has stayed the seat allocation process in the state of Karnataka on or after March 30, 2018. The petition was filled by Dr. Kirti Lakhina and 39 others and according to them the eligibility criteria set by the Government of Karnataka ‘is violative of their fundamental right to life and equality and is discriminative'. According to the stay order issued by the court, the Mock Allotment Results has been barred from being published and further proceedings will not take place till the judgment is delivered. 

According to the schedule notified by the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA), Bangaluru, the Mock Allotment Results were scheduled to be published on March 30, 2018 and the first-round allotment result of Post Graduate NEET seats in Karnataka was scheduled to be published on April 5, 2018. The notification is now suspended until further notice is issued by the court. 

Earlier the Karnataka Government released a notification which defined domicile requirements of the candidates and according to this notification, the candidates were supposed to be of Karnataka origin. Additional to this the candidate must have studied MBBS or BDS in a Medical or Dental college situated in the state of Karnataka. The candidate must have qualified PG NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for admission in Post Graduate Medical and Dental Programmes offered by the government colleges and institutes in the state of Karnataka. The notification was quickly opposed.

The notification was also opposed by The Medical Council of India i.e. MCI on March 15, 2018. The MCI regulates the Medical Education in India, told the apex court that Post Graduate medical seats in Government colleges are limited and should not be subjected to such conditions.

As reported by Deccan Herald, the Government of Karnataka last week defended the eligibility criteria notified by them, saying that the move is necessary to meet the state's requirement of skilled human resources.
