Reservations-A help or betrayal?A total of 7,95,031 candidates living in India cleared NEET 2019 out of the14,10,755 candidates who appeared for the exam. As many as 2,86,245 candidates in the unreserved category, 3,75,635 in the Other Backward Classes (OBC) category, 99,890 in the Scheduled Caste (SC) category, and 35,272 in the Scheduled Tribe (ST) category cleared the exam. Minimum qualifying percentile for the unreserved category was 50 percentile; for UR-PH, it was 45 percentile, whereas for all other categories it was 40 percentile.
So basically, the number of general candidates qualifying in the exam is much lower than other reserved categories. If such is the scenario of India, how could India produce good quality doctors? In India, there is only 1 doctor for 1000 people and we lack good quality doctors. Don't you think reservation is the reason for this?
Please share what do you think about the reservations in such important exams.
