No change in fee, admission norms for Medical Courses: Minister
Karnataka Minister for Medical Education Sharanaprakash Patil today said the State government had decided to retain the same fee structure and the old metrics used for distribution of seats in Medical Education courses.
Speaking to reporters here, he said there will be no change in the fee structure for merit students who get selected through the CET conducted by the government and also the distribution of seats between the government and the private colleges will also remain the same at last year's level.
He said the Ministry would decide in next few days the dates for counselling for seats in Post-Graduate degree courses as decks were cleared for admissions by the Supreme Court which had revoked a stay order to this effect.
He said private colleges had already held a round of counselling for 'management quota' seats and before they hold second round, the government would hold counselling for government quota.
On the contentious issue of deemed medical varsities in private sector providing 25 per cent of the seats under government quota, he said the court had already passed an order to this effect and the government would get more PG seats this year to be disbursed among the merit students from the current academic year itself.
