Med colleges against admission review

Private medical colleges are opposed to any review of admissions at the moment saying that they were planning to send their management quota merit lists to NTR University of Health and Medical Sciences in Vijayawada for its approval. If the government suspected foul play in the admission process, it should have looked into the matter before the opening of the process. This is no time for a re-evaluation of admissions, said Laxman Rao, secretary of the consortium of private medical college managements.

Sources said that the governors’ directive to the government calling for a second look at management quota admissions was based on proof of sale of seats submitted by NGO Save Merit Society. The NGO in question had earlier approached high court seeking a stay on admissions at this colleges. The case will come up for hearing on 8th July. Several colleges in the state have sold their management quota seats at prices in excess of 45 lakh. Some colleges have even charged 1 crore for a five-year MBBS degree.

We have been fighting against this practice, said VARK Prasad, the NGOs president. In its petition to the court, the complainant has mentioned 14 colleges which have allegedly been selling their seats at exorbitant rates. Up to 40% of seats in medical colleges are marked for the management quota for which admissions are to be made on the basis of merit. The fee prescribed for management quota is 5.5 lakh per annum for a course that lasts four years and six months.

Medicos stage dharna in Warangal: Kakatiya Medical College (KMC) students and teaching staff staged a dharna here on Thursday, 6th July, 2012 demanding additional seats in three Telangana government medical colleges. Later they resorted to a rasta roko causing a heavy traffic jam on the Warangal Kazipet highway. Medical JAC convener B Mohan Rao and IMA (Warangal chapter) president Sheshumadhav led the protests. They blamed the ministers and political leaders from the region for the raw deal meted out to government medical colleges in allocation of seats.

The region lost more than 150 seats because of the lackadaisical approach of the leaders, they said. Later, speaking to media persons, Sheshumadhav said that the state government conspired to deny additional seats to Telangana. Some colleges have even celebrated golden jubilee after outstanding performance, but government saw no reason to add 50 more seats in each of them, Sheshumadhav lamented.
