Seat reservation for NEET:

Category Percentage of seats reserved
General 47.5%
OBC-NC 27%
SC 15%
ST 7.5%
Physically handicapped 3%

Also, there is a further horizontal reservation for Persons with a disability of 3 per cent. In case the candidates for the same are not available then the seats are allotted to the individuals belonging to that category. For instance, there are two students who both belong to the OBC category and are contending for the 4th seat, but one student has a physical handicap as well. Then that candidate would get the preference of the 4th seat before the other OBC candidate.
