The Punjab Government on Thursday said it has decided to extend reservation for sportspersons and children or grandchildren of the 1984 anti-Sikh riot victims to its quota in private medical colleges for undergraduate MBBS courses.


The reservation already exists in government medical colleges in the state.


The government, as per its amended notification of July 11, 2019, has extended the reservation to private colleges as well, Advocate General (AG) Atul Nanda submitted before the Punjab and Haryana High Court, as per the official release here.


Appearing on behalf of the state earlier in a case before the high court on Thursday, the AG submitted that through its revised notification of July 11, it has amended its previous notification.


The court was informed that the state will not adopt an adversarial approach when it comes to any welfare measure.


The same could be discussed and decided after the court had the opportunity to peruse various Constitution Bench judgments in this regard, the AG said.
