MBBS Admissions in Minority Medical Colleges
Utter confusion prevails over MBBS admissions in minority
medical colleges as the managements have failed to issue a notification till now.
While the NTR University of Health Sciences, the regulator of medical colleges in
the state, has been conducting 'online counseling' for non-minority colleges since
July 19 in a transparent manner through 'single window' system, the minority colleges
have been shying away from adopting the same procedures Worse still, the minority
colleges have decided to conduct 'individual admissions' this year too and that
too for a single day though the norms stipulate that the seats should be filled
through 'single window' counseling.
Students are being informed that the admissions will begin separately in each college
starting July 28. Students and parents are tensed as only a week left for the admissions
They are totally unaware about where to obtain applications forms and where to submit
Despite minority colleges openly flouting the norms on MBBS admissions every year,
neither the department of minority welfare nor the NTRUHS have bothered to take
any corrective steps this year.
"Unless the state government and the NTRUHS intervene immediately, the
merit students from minority categories who secured good ranks in Eamcet will be
the sufferers. How can the government be confined to the role of a spectator when
minority colleges openly flout norms and deprive seats to merit students from minority
categories? Single window system should be enforced as directed by the SC," demanded
Mr. Mohd Ansari, president, Minorities Rights Protection Committee.
