Published on 14 April, 2017 at 1:39 pm By

This Wednesday, news of Yogi Adityanath-led government scrapping all caste-based reservation for candidates from SC, ST and OBC categories in private medical and dental colleges of Uttar Pradesh had been milling around on all social media platforms. The news also circulated on a number of news channels and websites, stating it as the BJP government’s step to bring prosperity and end corruption in the state.

However, the medical education authorities of the state have put an end to all such reports. Refuting the story, officials have clarified that there was already no provision of reservation for SC, ST and/or OBC candidates in such colleges.

Commenting on the issue, Dr. V. N. Tripathi, Director General, medical education, said that there has been no change in the policy whatsoever. He also said that reservations were never a part of the admission process in private medical and dental colleges as per the prevalent policy that was made in 2006.



 

On March 10, 2017, the Akhilesh Yadav-led government released a new admission policy per which admission to these colleges would be granted on the basis of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) merit list-2017 for PG courses. Basically, private medical and dental colleges of Uttar Pradesh were brought under the ambit of NEET for the first time.

Clause 7 of the very order only reaffirmed that there would be no caste-based reservation for students belonging to SC, ST and OBC categories in private and medical colleges of Uttar Pradesh. Hence, no fresh initiative has yet been taken by Yogi Adityanath government in this regard.
