NRI quota in PG medical and dental courses in private colleges not sacrosanct: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has stated that private medical colleges aren’t obligated to give any NRI quota for admissions in any given year. the present norm of fifteen % isn’t necessary and if a medical college or establishment or the state regulatory authority decides to try and do away with it, it simply reasonably provide reasonable notice.

The order was given by the bench of Justices L. Nageswara Rao and S. Ravindra Bhat.

The bench was hearing a petition against the order of a division bench of the Rajasthan high court that had overruled the order of one judge bench of that court.

The court found that the modification of seat matrix by eliminating the NRI quota for admission to post-graduate medical and dental courses in colleges in Rajasthan, for the educational year 2020-21, was unsustainable in law.

The bench, however, determined that “the NRI quota is neither sacrosanct, not inviolable in terms of existence in any given year, or its extent.”
