In the NEET-PG counselling which is pending before the Supreme Court, the Union government told the court that it has decided to retain the existing criteria for EWS as changing the criteria midway will lead to complications.

The government in an affidavit dated on December 31 had informed the Supreme Court that it has accepted the recommendations of the Committee for Revisiting the Criteria Of The Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) Reservation for making candidates of those families whose annual income is up to Rs 8 lakh eligible for EWS reservation but excluding a person whose family has five acres of agricultural land and above from EWS irrespective of income.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the case on January 6.
