    I want to draw your attention :
    In National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) – Undergraduate Medical Entrance there is a common syllabus, single exam, one result. Medical Council of India (MCI) has agreed to reserve 85% seats as State Quota on demand of different State Govts at MCI meeting. This goes against efficiency and real talents – violating constitutional rights.
    In West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and some other states there were District-wise reservation in middle of sixty’s for admission to a medical college which was struck down by Supreme Court on the ground that the object of the selection of candidates for the admission is to select the best possible talent from the entire state, having regards to efficiency required for medical profession. It is against Article 14 of Indian Constitution. Observation of Supreme Court are same for about two dozen of same type cases up to 2011.
    (Supreme Court Case : (i) Minor P. Rajendran vs State Of Madras & Others on 17 January, 1968. (ii) Dr. Pradeep Jain and Others Vs Union of India and Others ,Writ Petitions Nos. 6091, 8882-83, 9219 and 9820 of 1983, Civil Appeal No. 6392 of 1983 , EQUIVALENT CITATION – 1984-(001)-Scale-0894-SC 1984-(002)-LLJ-0481-SC 1984-(003)-SCC-0654-SC 1984-(003)-SCR-0942-SC 1984-AIR-1420-SC CORAM P. N. Bhagwati A. P. Sen Ranganath Misra DATE OF JUDGMENT – 22.06.1984 )
    So State-wise reservation of 85% NEET – UG medical seats for admission in a medical college through NEET is against Article 14 of Constitution.
    When there will be no state-wise reservation, in educationally backward states majority of seats in medical will be filled up by the brilliant students of other states. Provincialism will create a new problem – all over the country there will be a problem of law and order.
