In a significant ruling the Supreme Court today raised the Central quota for post-graduate (PG) courses in medical colleges across the country from the existing 25 to 50 per cent and ordered holding of a uniform entrance test for it by the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

It also suggested that the legislature should strive to pass an Act for a uniform entrance exam for admission to the MD and MS courses in the country under the Central quota,

A five-judge Constitution Bench, headed by the Chief Justice, Mr V.N Khare, said henceforth the Central quota and the medical college’s own quota for PG courses would be on the basis of 50 per cent for each category of students.

A five-judge Constitution Bench, headed by the Chief Justice, Mr V.N Khare, said henceforth the Central quota and the medical college’s own quota for PG courses would be on the basis of 50 per cent for each category of students.
At present the medical colleges provide only 25 per cent seats to Central quota students and reserve 75 per cent for their own students.

The judgement came on a bunch of petitions that raised the issue of difficulties in getting admissions to MD and MS courses by medicos, who had got MBBS degree from medical colleges outside their states under the Central quota.

They had said while the colleges from where they had done the MBBS course did not give them preference in admission to PG courses, the medical colleges of their states of domicile were denying them admission on the ground that they had limited seats of 25 per cent under the Central quota.

The court said now the AIIMS would conduct an all-India entrance examination for the 50 per cent seats under the enhanced Central quota for admissions to medical colleges across the country.

It further said the medical colleges would also give admission to their own medicos under the 50 per cent quota for their own students purely on the basis of merit, based on an entrance examination conducted by the university to which they were affiliated.

With today’s directives, the seats for PG courses for the medicos under the Central quota are expected to go up to 4,000 from the existing 2,000.

A s many as 18,000 students pass out every year from various medical colleges across the country and their first preference is to get admission to the MD and MS courses.
