Candidates awaiting admission in a fix
UNCERTAINTY DOGS CPMT-2006 pass-outs waiting for admission to private colleges. At first, the seats under State quota in the minority institutions got reduced and now the GO giving them space in private colleges has been stayed.
The MBBS and BDS classes for the academic session 2006-07 are scheduled to begin on August 1.
Director General Medical Education Dr Kamal Sahni says safeguarding the interest of the students will remain top priority and efforts are going on so that their session is not delayed.
But the DGME office is yet to receive the official documents from the court regarding the stay on the GO dated July 10. The GO directed seat sharing in private medical colleges on a ratio of 65:35.
In the absence of this seat sharing facility, the directorate of medical education will not be able to ensure admission of candidates in private colleges. It may be mentioned that minority colleges have already been given relaxation from seat sharing.
Around 1,800 students were allotted seats this year in private medical and dental colleges in the State and most of them have taken admission. Nearly 150 are left without admission due to various reasons.
DGME Dr Sahni says, “ We are yet to receive the court’s order but as we have been informed the order may not make impact upon those students who have already taken admission.” But even then, the future of 150 candidates who have passed through the counselling faces uncertainty.
