Puducherry to introduce 10 percent MBBS internal reservation for Govt school aspirants
Puducherry: Taking cognizance of the meagre number of medical aspirants belonging from Government schools in medical colleges, the Pondicherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy said that the UT has decided to introduce a 10 percent internal reservation in MBBS courses for students of these schools, who have cleared the NEET this year.
PTI reports that after a cabinet meeting, he told reporters that his government has decided to introduce the quota through an order and the file relating to this had since been sent to Lt Governor Kiran Bedi for approval. He said if the Lt Governor did not give her nod they were ready to fight for the quota for government school students. During 2018-19 only 94 students from government schools had cleared the NEET test, while 1,346 from private schools had come out triumphant in the NEET examination, he noted.
