Hit by Maratha & EWS quotas, gen category med students launch protest


Nagpur: Graduate docs desiring to pursue post graduate classes in drugs from the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on Tuesday protested the state executive’s determination to put into effect new reservation quotas, leaving very restricted seats for normal or open class meritorious scholars.
MBBS docs who have cleared PG-NEET claimed their careers are in severe peril due to the new reservations for Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC — popularly known as Maratha reservation), and Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in PG seats. They have sought an appointment with chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to discuss the conceivable answers to this issue and their long term prospects.

“Only 233 seats are to be had for 2,054 MBBS docs from open class who have certified for PG admissions. Even if we upload 37 seats in non-public scientific colleges, best 270 seats are to be had for normal class scholars. This form of implementation will be the end of meritorious scholars in Maharashtra,” stated Dr Sameer Deshmukh, a resident at GMC.

The seat matrix declared by the CET Cell says three,913 applicants have certified for PG admissions in Maharashtra for 1,441 PG seats. Out of these, 2,024 applicants belong to open class. For them, 233 seats are to be had in all state-run GMCs. These seats can also be claimed by reserved applicants as well.

Condition in non-public scientific colleges is even worse. As 16% of SEBC cannot be implemented in management and NRI quota of private colleges, the government has added this quantity to the state quota, which has greater SEBC quota to nearly 30%, in the end leaving best 37 seats for normal class scholars in non-public scientific colleges.

Dr TP Lahane, Director of Medical Education and Research, Maharashtra state, stated normal class scholars should opt for seats of management quota in non-public scientific colleges.

“It’s a proven fact that best 37 seats are to be had for normal class scholars in non-public colleges. We had no choice however to put into effect the reservation as the prime court docket has directed the same. However, now we have intentionally stored the management quota and NRI quota out of any reservation. All 215 seats are to be had for normal class scholars,” he stated.

However, charges in management and NRI quota is 3 to 5 occasions higher than the state quota seats, so this recommendation has left the protesting scholars indignant.

ISSUE AT A GLANCE

UNTIL NOW: Reservation restricted to 52% in Maharashtra

NOW: Reservation rises to 78% after including SEBC and EWS quota

EWS Reservation: 10 % EWS reservation presented in Feb 2019 by central executive and rapidly implemented in Maharashtra within months, despite assurances from the centre about proportionate (25%) increment in seats soon

SEBC reservation: 16% SEBC reservation (Maratha reservation) presented on November 30, 2018, by state executive and implemented on this consultation. Doctors declare that is against the SEBC Act, which says “new reservation shall now not be implemented after graduation of admission procedure, which includes graduation of registration for the doorway examination for admission”. NEET-PG registration started on November 2, 2018, almost a month before SEBC was announced

Can MBBS doctor be educationally backward? General class scholars say the MBBS degree in itself an ideal equalizer and it's unfair to pit one doctor against every other on the foundation of ‘social and educational backwardness’
