Most of the States in India have implemented Union Government’s newly introduced Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in medical education for academic session 2019-20. However, the State Government of Karnataka is yet to study the modalities of this newly introduced quota.

The process of introducing EWS quota is yet to be initiated by the State Government for medical colleges in Karnataka and dental colleges in Karnataka in 2019-20. If the State Government had implemented EWS quota this year then the State might have got additional MBBS seats this year, which could have helped ease the scarcity of quality doctors. This has disappointed many medical aspirants in the State including from State’s Other Backward Classes.

The State has failed to make use of this benefit as the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) had just completed final rounds of Seat allotment for MBBS admission and BDS admission to medical and dental colleges respectively for 2019-20.
