In two days, the sale of application forms for MBBS and BDS courses crossed 20,800, sending officials in the directorate of medical education into frenzy. The health department has now ordered for 10,000 more forms. On Tuesday, 15th May, 2012 a total of 11,040 applications were sold in government-run medical and dental colleges. On Wednesday, 16th May, 2012 another 9,840 applications were sold. Last year, 22,000 forms were sold in all. While general category students had to pay Rs 500 for application form, SC/ ST students, who produced two photocopies of their attested community certificate, got it for free.
The deans of some of the government hospitals have told the selection committee that they had exhausted the forms. "We have been repeatedly telling people that forms can be downloaded from the web pages," said a senior health department official. The applications can be downloaded free of cost from www.tn.health.org. Some parents, who stood for more than one hour in the queue at the Government Kilpauk Medical College, said they weren't able to download forms from the internet. "I have been trying to download the form since yesterday (Tuesday, 15th May, 2012). I came here today because of that," said N Ganapathy, employee of a nationalised bank.
