Chandigarh, Aug 7 IANS | 3 months ago

The Punjab government has urged the union government to relax the admission criterion for MBBS course for the Scheduled Caste (SC) students.


Punjab State Scheduled Castes Commission chairman Rajesh Bagha Thursday said 71 seats of SC quota in medical colleges in Punjab were still vacant.

The Punjab government wants the central government to lower the admission cut off marks from 40 percent to 30 percent for SC students to secure admission in medical colleges of the state.

"It has come to the notice of SC commission that 71 seats of SC quota are still vacant, which could not be filled due to the strict admission norms of the union government. Many SC organizations have also given representations in this regard," Bagha said.

He said the cut-off percentage was reduced to 26 percent in the 2013-14 admission session to fill up the medical seats.
