J&K to continue with extant scheme of admissions to NEET UG/PG courses
…not to contribute to All India Quota scheme
Jammu, Jan 31: The Administrative Council which met under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor G C Murmu decided that the Jammu and Kashmir will continue with its existing scheme regarding admissions to the NEET, Under Graduate and Post-Graduate courses and not to contribute to scheme of All India quota for the academic year 2020-21.
The decision has been taken in view of the fact that the Union Territory of J&K has its own reservation policy.
In J&K Reservation Policy, various categories of socially and educationally backward classes comprising RBA, OSC, ALC, besides other categories viz Sports, Children of Defence Personnel (CDP), Children of State Police Personnel & Paramilitary forces (Permanent Residents) Serving in J&K State (JKPM) etc. are included thereby providing equitable opportunities/representation to all the category candidates in admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses.
The J&K Reservation Policy affords an opportunity to female candidates and students of backward areas to compete in the competitive examinations, including medical examinations, successfully.
