Karnataka: PG medical course’s revised calender for admissions


Karnataka: PG medical course’s revised calender for admissions

Bengaluru:  The revised calendar of events for admission to post-graduate medical courses for the 2018-19 academic year has been released by the state department of medical education.

In line with the Supreme Court Directive, the department which released the revised calendar of events, on Monday, announced that the  Non-Karnataka candidates have to choose their options from April 10, 10.30am to April 11, 6 pm.

Mock allotments will be published on April 13 by 4 PM by the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). Eligible candidates will be allowed to change their choices from April 13, 6 pm to April 14, 6 pm. For more details, candidates can traverse: kea.kar.nic.in

However, the center has yet to give the state department of medical education a reply to its request seeking an extension of the last date for completion of admissions to PG medical/dental courses this year.

The Supreme Court had recently overruled the domicile condition put by Karnataka government. As per the SC order candidates from outside Karnataka can also opt for government and government-quota seats reported TNIE.

In an earlier story done by the Medical Dialogues team it was reported that the Supreme Court held as “invalid” a condition in the information bulletin for PGET-2018 issued by the Karnataka government which imposed a condition of domicile on candidates for admission to postgraduate medical or dental courses seats in the state.

The top court directed the Karnataka government, the Directorate of Medical Education and the Karnataka Examinations Authority to modify and amend the information bulletin for the examination and re-publish the calendar of events.

 A bench of justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit referred to its 2014 verdict which dealt with a similar condition in PGET-14, denying institutional preference to students who had passed MBBS/BDS from colleges or universities situated in Karnataka.
 It said that the relevant clause under consideration, of the information bulletin for PGET-2018 is identical in substance to the one that was considered in the 2014 verdict and thus it is completely covered by that decision
