RajaRajeswari Medical College moves from Karnataka University To Tamil Nadu


RajaRajeswari Medical College moves from Karnataka University To Tamil Nadu

Bengaluru: Karnataka may have got the maximum number of PG Diploma Seats converted by the Medical Council of India (MCI), but the state’s medical education sector has taken a major hit.

As mentioned in a recent report by the Mirror, one of the top medical colleges in Karnataka, RajaRajeswari Medical College and Hospital will now become a part of Tamil Nadu based Dr MGR Educational and Research Institute (Deemed to be University) which will lead to a fall of 250 seats in the Karnataka’s MBBS pool along with more than 100 PG medical seats.

The confirmation comes after the University Grants Commission (UGC) issued a notification stating, “RajaRajeswari Medical College and Hospital which is located in the city will become a constituent college of Dr MGR institute from the academic year 2019-20.”

The UGC also asked the Vice-Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to take necessary action towards disaffiliation of Rajarajeswari Medical College from its ambit.

Last year Dr MGR University had submitted an application for the inclusion of the medical college under the ambit of Dr MGR Educational and Research Institute (Deemed to be University). According to the daily, the UGC notification mentions that after it obtained the application from the Tamil Nadu varsity, the UGC’s Expert Committee consisting of a nominee of MCI scrutinized the application and placed before the Commission. The Commission considered and approved the recommendations of the Committee.

Boost for the medical college

Glad with the development, Dr Naveen S, Principal of Rajarajeswari Medical College stated to Mirror, “It is a big boost for us… When we become a part of a deemed university, our research work will improve, funding will be more and it will result in the overall growth for our institution. As of now, we get our funding from RGUHS, but that is very less.”

There will be new courses introduced once the college becomes a part of a deemed university, he added.

The medical students, who enrolled in RajaRajeswari Medical College prior to its inclusion under the ambit Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Educational and Research Institute will receive their degrees from RGUHS and those medical students who enrolled at the medical college after its disaffiliation from RGUHS will be awarded degrees by MGR University.

Speaking to Mirror Dr Sachidanand, V-C of RGUHS said, “They applied for it long ago with a view to becoming a university and it has been a long process. I guess even before I took over the charge, it was going on. Now once the orders are issued they will officially be part of another university.”

  1. Dear Concerned,
    OK if you want to escape from providing government seats to Karnataka Government this drama has taken place, then you bloody well shift the college premises from Karnataka to Tamilnadu immediatly otherwise they have to face the consequences.
    Stop doing this cheap rated gimics.

  2. the place being inside karnataka, the Rajarajeshwari medical college shall not get in to other state university. if any discrepancy or back twisting happens by any official or administrators they should fight but not to leave the place where in the institution had been established for the cause of minority welfare. so we request not to leave from RGUHS and try to sort out the issues legally or diplomatically, please for the sake of minority communities.

    Now RRMed college should not remain in Karnataka. It should move to Tamil Nadu with immediate effect. RGUHS also should not give it\’s nod for affiliating with other state University. Other colleges also wish to get affiliated to other states, then what will be the future of Karnataka? Let the Kanndigas fight against the decision. Let the colleges want, let them shift to their state of choice.If this trend continues, then Karnataka will be vanished. North Karnataka colleges will go to Maharashtra, Kalburgi,Raichur and other district colleges go to Andhra and Telangana. Mangaluru side will merge with Kerala. You have to search for Karnataka. This is not a good and sensible decision.What our Karnataka Govt doing? Dr. Nagaraja.S Davangere

  4. Exactly you are correct
    Many student dreams are shattered now
    If they want to affiliate to MGR university ask them to shift their college to TN only

  5. Yes… you are correct sir..

  6. Why are you instilling regionalism and hatred? The students are going to be from Karnataka as per the Government of Karnataka norms.

    GREAT ESCAPE FROM THE CLUTCHES OF RGUHS CONGRATS R R M C , BANGALORE . NOT EVERY OTHER MEDICAL COLLEGES ARE LUCKY TO FIND THEIR WAY OUT OF THE RGUHS. UNFORTUNATELY THE ENTIRE MEDICAL EDUCATION IN THE STATE OF KARNATAKA IS GOVERNED MY BA PASSED OUT BABUS THE BUEROCRATES SITTING IN AIR-CONDITIONED ROOMS OF THE STATE CAPITAL. THEY HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT THE FUNCTIOING OF THE TEACHING MEDICALCOLLEGE HOSPITALS . THEY DON\’T EVEN KNOW DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PROFESSOR OF CLINICAL SUBJECT AND TRINY DOCTOR / RESIDENTS . THE WAY THE CONDUCT/ BEHAVE IS QUITE DISGUSTING . I THINK THEY LACK OF MANNERS . THEIR ATTITUDE AND BEHAVIOUR IS MORE OF A SOCIOPATHS / PSYCHOPATHS, I MAY NOT BE WRONG EVEN IF I CALL THEM WHITE COLLARED CRIMINALS ( AT TIMES THEY MAY TURN RED COLLORED ). UNFORTUNATELY THE HIGHLY QUALIFIED COMMITED SKILLFUL DEDICATED DYNAMIC DASHING DECENT DOCTORS HAS TO FOLLOW THEIR IDIOTIC BEHAVIOUR . I THINK SUCH THINGS HAPPENS ONLY IN A CORRUPT COUNTRY LIKE OURS , OVER FLOODED WITH ILLQUALIFIED BABUS THE BUEROCRATES , THE LEFT OVER GRABAGE OF THE BLOODY BRITISH RAJ DAYS. I AM SURE HAVING SUCH PEOPLE AS ADMISTERS SPECIALLY CONTROLLING ENTIRE MEDICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE SYSTEM NOTHING BUT A DISASTER . I AM FOR OPEN DEBATE AT ANY TIME , ANY WHERE , LET THE T V CAMERAS START ROLLING TO RECORD LIVE , SO THAT OUR INNOCENT CITIZENS KNOW THE TRUE PICTURE . I CONCERN ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT NEXALS . I WISH THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA REINTERDUCE / BRING BACK THE GLORIOUS DAYS OF INDIAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM AND MEDICAL EDUCATION BY STARTING INDIAN MEDICAL SERVICES ( IMS ). WHICH USED TO BE MUCH MORE BETTER THAN THE IAS , IFS, IPS AND IRS…. BY THE DOCTORS , FOR THE DOCTORS AND TO THE POOR HELPLESS UNDERPRIVILEGED DOWNTRODDEN INOCENT PATIENTS OF OUR COUNTRY .

  8. It is all business…Deemed universities will have 99 percent pass rates and so the coffers will fill easily..No need to share the loot..
