The centre has urged the Supreme Court to take up petitions challenging the criteria for economically weaker sections in the NEET-PG admissions, saying there was a genuine urgency in the matter.

The bench headed by Justice Chandrachud had enquired the centre to explain what exercises were undertaken to arrive at the Rs. 8 Lakh annual income ceiling for being eligible for this quota. The Centre told the court on November 25, 2021, that it would revisit the criteria and sought four weeks to complete the exercise. The court then fixed the next hearing for January 6, 2022.
