State to fill 50% PG medical seats in deemed univs

PUBLISH DATE 1st February 2017

The state government will fill 50% of post-graduate medical seats in deemed universities and private colleges through common counselling rounds that will commence soon. Admissions to all colleges will be based on scores in NEET-PG, mentioned a recent government resolution issued by the state recently . The government is also in the process of formulating an ordinance to include deemed universities in the common counselling conducted for admissions to 85% of their undergraduate seats.

While 50% will be filled by the state government in PG colleges, the remaining 50% will be retained by college managements, said Pravin Shingare, director of Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER). The state will, therefore, fill around 450 of the 900 PG seats in private colleges, 550 of the 1,100 in deemed medical universities and 100% for 1,200 seats in state government colleges.

However, for undergraduate admissions, which will commence only after NEETUG results will be out in June, a government resolution alone is not enough, said a government official.
