Puducherry has decided to introduce a 10 percent internal reservation in MBBS courses for government school students of the Union Territory Chief Minister V Narayanasamy confirmed the same.

During the 2018-19 academic year, only 94 students from government schools cleared the NEET 2020 exam. Whereas 1,346 students from private schools cleared the NEET 2020 exam. 

Chief Minister informed that this is one of the main reasons that they have decided to introduce a 10% internal quota for government school students who clear the NEET exam and pursue medical education in government colleges only. The special quota will be introduced through a Government Order instead of an Act. The file for the approval of the quota has been sent to Lt Governor.

The Tamil Nadu Assembly had on September 15 unanimously passed a bill to provide a 7.5 percent horizontal quota in medical admissions for state government school students who clear the NEET exam. The Tamil Nadu governor is yet to give his assent to it.
