CPMT CANDIDATES, who could not secure a seat even after being allotted one in private medical colleges in the first counselling session, may participate in the second session going to be held from August 25.

Director general medical education Kamal Sahni said since private colleges have filed a suit in court to conduct their own entrance exam, on the basis of a decision given by the Supreme Court, those candidates who could not get the allotted seats, may come for second counselling.

“We have planned to file an expedite petition in connection with the case filed by the association of private colleges. Everything regarding admission has to be finalised before September 30, so we are also going for a second round of counselling on August 25,” Dr Sahni said. The UP Government had brought an ordinance that advocated seat sharing in private medical and dental colleges under the CPMT quota. But some private colleges refused to accept the same and decided to go for a separate entrance test.

This posed a problem for those candidates who were allotted seats under the CPMT quota.
