Karnataka PG students demand common Counselling

Karnataka PG students demand common Counselling

Bengaluru: Post Graduate Medical aspirants for the academic year 2017-18 staged a protest, on Saturday, during the Karnataka Examination Authority’s (KEA), document verification exercise. They demanded common counselling for seats at all the colleges, including medical, dental and PG diploma seats even in deemed universities.

The candidates alleged that despite the union government having implemented NEET and abolished multiple admission tests, private colleges and deemed universities continued to hold multiple counselling.

They wanted the state government to hold talks with COMEDK and ensure single admission counselling, this year reports TNIE.

The students urged that seven years domicile be made mandatory by the government to eligibility for PG seats under the state quota.

They alleged that students who clear MBBS/ BDS courses in the state are eligible to  state quota seats at PG level, even if they are from other states, under the present ruling.

    There is one more issue pertinent to medical education ( seat allotment after NEET Examination after UG & PG )
    At present opaque and shifting candidates from private medical colleges to CBSE quota to state Quota and DNB seats which ultimately ignore the merit leave the room for manipulation at the end of the day and many seats remain vacant
    After NEET examination (which must be conducted for AIIMS, PGI Chandigarh etc also) there should be single counseling conducted by ministry of health & welfare conducted with the help of Software company.
    There will be no disturbance to any state quota or any reservation.
    Allotment should be on the basis of merit cum choice
    In one counseling all the seats will be filled and no shifting of candidates, no wastage of time and money, no vacant seats batches will start early and country will have more specialist.
    For further more optimization of resources the exam may be conducted after every six months to fill up vacant seats/ PGI Chandigarh and AIIMS seats.

    Infrastructure problem of private medical colleges can be solved by attaching them to district hospitals,
    this will improve the quality of health care as well as teaching of young doctors ( Most of the private medical colleges are situated far from main cities and beds are not full and faculty does not want to stay and kill their time)
    Government private partnership is working very well for long time at KMC Mangaluru.
    Fee for PG and UG courses will be less with this arrangement.
    To further promote the merit govt. is expected to arrange interest free loans at time of counselling so that even poor meritorious student can opt for private Medical college.

    Such proactive vigilance on the part of aspiring students is the only way out to pressurize the government authorities who otherwise are hand in glove with the medical education mafia.
