No reduction in reservation for OBCs in medical courses: Fadnavis
"If such instances come to our notice, the admission process will be stopped," he added.
He was replying to a question raised by Congress's DP Sawant during Question Hour on whether reservations would be affected due to region-wise quota.
Maharashtra provides 70% quota for locals, 30% rest of state
The region-wise reservation for admissions in medical colleges was in existence since many years, Fadnavis said.
There were chances that students from a region may face difficulties in seeking admissions in medical colleges elsewhere, he added.
The Maharashtra government's 70:30 region-wise formula for admissions implies reservation for 70% locals (from that region) and 30% from rest of the state.
