The All India Quota where OBC and EWS reservation has been provided is applicable to only 50 per cent of total PG seats in government medical colleges across the country. Rest 50 percent of seats under All India Quota will be reserved for the candidates who have domicile of the state.

NEET PG Reservation in AIQ seats: A timeline
All India Quota scheme was introduced in 1986 on the direction of the Supreme Court. The objective was to provide merit-based opportunities to students who didn’t have domicile of any particular state. Read the chronology of events related to AIQ scheme:
1986: All India Quota scheme was introduced to provide domicile-free admission into any college across the country.
2007: Supreme Court allowed 15 per cent and 7.5 per cent reservation in AIQ scheme.
2007: The Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act was implemented in 2007, providing 27 per cent reservation to OBC students in central universities including Safdarjung Hospital and Lady Harding Medical College. But it was not extended to AIQ seats of state medical colleges.
2021: From this year onwards, candidates of the OBC and EWS category will be getting 27 per cent reservation and 10 per cent reservation respectively in 50 per cent AIQ seats.
NEET PG reservation for OBC
There will be 27 per cent NEET PG reservation for OBC candidates in AIQ seats, as per the revised quota system in admission to government medical colleges. This would enable candidates of OBC category to compete for seats in any state through AIQ scheme. The revised rule of OBC quota in NEET PG will be applicable as per the Central OBC list.
OBC criteria for seeking benefit under AIQ seat
OBC refers to Other Backward Candidates. Candidates need to check the Central list of OBC to know whether he/she can avail the benefit for NEET PG admission or not. The list mentions state-wise castes which are considered OBC. Only those who fall into the category of the non-creamy layer will be applicable under OBC quota in AIQ seats. Creamy layer OBC candidates won’t be able to avail the benefit of the newly introduced quota in NEET PG. For the non-creamy layer, the candidate’s parent's income should be less than Rs 8 lakh per year. At the same time, they should not hold posts of class one or two officer rank. Candidates of the OBC category need to have a certificate which is issued by Tahsildar in the district of the state.
NEET PG reservation for EWS
EWS stand for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and are eligible for 10 per cent reservation in 50 per cent AIQ seats in NEET PG admission. Rest 50 per cent AIQ seats under EWS category will be allotted by State as per their own reservation criteria. One of the criteria for EWS is that candidate’s annual family income should be less than Rs 8 lakh. This Income includes earnings from all sources i.e. salary, agriculture, business, profession.
