The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has taken a historic and landmark decision for providing 27% reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and 10% reservation for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) in the All India Quota (AIQ) Scheme for undergraduate and postgraduate medical/dental courses (MBBS / MD / MS / Diploma / BDS / MDS) from the current academic year 2021-22 onwards.
This decision would benefit nearly 1500 OBC students in MBBS and 2500 OBC students in PG medical courses and around 550 EWS students in MBBS and around 1000 EWS students in PG medical courses.
The AIQ Scheme was introduced in the year 1986 under the directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court to provide for domicile-free merit-based opportunities to students from any State who aspire to study in a good medical college in another State. The AIQ quota comprises 15% seats of total seats and 50% of total seats in Government medical colleges in India for MBBS and PG medical courses respectively.
Initially, there was no reservation in AIQ Scheme up to 2007. In 2007, the Hon’ble Supreme Court introduced reservations of 15% for SCs and 7.5% for STs in the AIQ Scheme. When the Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act became effective in 2007 providing for uniform 27% reservation to OBCs, the same was implemented in all the Central Educational Institutions namely, Lady Harding Medical College, Safdarjung Hospital, Aligarh Muslim University, and Banaras Hindu University, etc. However, this was not extended to the AIQ seats of State medical and dental colleges.
The present Government is committed to providing due reservation both to the OBC and EWS categories. The OBC students from across the country shall now be able to take benefit of this reservation in AIQ Scheme to compete for seats in any State. Being a Central Scheme, the Central List of OBCs shall be used for this reservation. Around 1500 OBC students in MBBS and 2500 in postgraduation will be benefitted through this reservation.
