OBC reservation is being implemented under government directives, but only in central institutes (i.e. not in most of the colleges covered under AIPMT). About 1900 MBBS and approximately 250 dental seats are available through AIPMT, but ranks up to 2500 can reasonably hope for selection due to overlap with other entrances.
