NEET 2016 Score Card mandatory for NRI & Management Quota Seats, says SC

Last Updated - March 21, 2018

The admissions to MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) and BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) under the Management and NRI quotas will also be will be through NEET 2016 Score Card, making it compulsory from this year itself.

Hon’ble Supreme Court’s Take

As per the directive given by the Honourable Supreme Court of India, the NEET ranking is mandatory for all the candidates to secure a seat in Medical and Dental Colleges. The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has issued a circular regarding the same.

The NRI and management quota is the way to mint money by private medical colleges. Each seat under these quotas is permitted to be sold for a price ranging from somewhere around Rs. 85 Lakhs to a whopping Rs. 2.5 Crore! The NRI quota has approximately 310 seats. Approximately 400 seats that were under management quota will now come under NEET 2016. The management seats were given at a price from anywhere between Rs 85 lakh to Rs 1.25 crore. This implies that a business of more than Rs. 500 Crore per annum will get affected if NEET ranking is to be considered.

The circular issued by the RGUHS has put a lot of medical colleges in a dilemma as they had already booked management quota seats for the coming session. Colleges are in a fix as this decision will affect their turnover with high margins.

A representative of a private medical college said, “With this new rule, at least half of the revenue that private colleges used to make thorough management and NRI seats will go.

The Prime Mover of the judgement

In the past, candidates willing to apply through the Management or NRI quota did not have to appear for an entrance exam. Just the Class 12th or PUC II marks were sought as an NEET 2016 Eligibility Criteria for seats under the mentioned NEET 2016 Quotas. This will surely have to change from now. Students who want to apply through these quotas will also have to apply through their NEET 2016 Score Card.

These quotas are one of the prime sources of revenues for Private Medical Colleges in India. Therefore, the management and authorities in such institutes are not willing to forgo this extra income. Discussions are underway so as to prevent NRI and management quota seats from coming under the radar of NEET.

The NRI quota seat allotment process is allegedly turning out to be a huge scam and a money making scheme with barely any candidate with NRI background getting admission under the quota.

The NRI quota seat allotment process is a synonym for collection of capitation fee which was banned the government. As per the government rules, the seats under the NRI quota must be filled with NRIs as a first preference and then by their dependents and those sponsored by them.

According to Medical Council of India (MCI) not more than 2 per cent of out of 310 seats under the NRI quota are actual NRIs in the State. This is the hard hitting reality of such quotas.

The NRI quota is essentially introduced and followed by institutes to promote cultural diversity in their institutes. However, this has taken a backseat in most institutes as their main agenda is to make profits by selling these seats under the “NRI Sponsored” categories. This category enables Indian Nationals to get a seat in the desired college by getting the fee payed by their NRI relatives. Therefore, sabotaging the whole idea behind the NRI seat quotas.

Another perspective to look at it is how such quotas are a hurdle for more deserving candidates who sweat it out to attain a better rank than the candidates who get admissions with money being the only factor. This will ensure that equal opportunities are given to all the candidates applying to a specific course in a college.
