CENTAC Medical Courses counselling Postponed

CENTAC Medical Courses counselling Postponed

The Centralised Admission Committee (CENTAC) has postponed the counselling for medical courses for colleges in Puducherry to 31st July, 2010, a communication from the Chief Minister's Office said on Friday evening.

The counselling for medical courses was set to begin on 26th July, 2010. A senior CENTAC official said that the postponement was owing to "administrative reasons". The counselling would follow the original time schedule on 31st July, 2010.

Fee Structure

Meanwhile, the fee committee has fixed the fee structure for medical seats under the government quota for two medical colleges in the Union Territory. The decision was taken at a meeting held on Friday.

For MBBS course in the Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), fees for an year has been fixed at Rs. 2,40,000.

For the Sri Manakula Vinayakar Medical College and Hospital, the fees would be Rs. 2,25,000. Fee structure for Venkateshwara Medical College and Research Centre (SVMCRC), which also participated in the meeting, was not fixed as the MCI has not awarded permission for the college to admit students this year.

The four deemed universities are yet to fix the fee structure for their seats allocated for the government quota.

Interestingly, the counselling for the medical courses conducted through the Centralised Admission Committee (CENTAC) would include the seats allotted to SVMCRC.

According to a senior CENTAC official, students would be informed during the counselling about the status of medical seats at SVMCRC and that they could opt for the college "at their own risk".

Without the seats from SVMCRC, the total number of seats available for medical courses under the government quota gets reduced to 212. Last year, 261 seats were available for the students.

The government has also sought a direction from the Madras High Court to include the New Government Medical College, which was also denied recognition by the MCI, in the counselling process. This follows the government's application filed in the High Court seeking the quashing of the MCI order rejecting recognition for the college this year.

If a positive result does not come through, a separate counselling for the New Government Medical College would be held as and when the recognition comes, the official said. Students who take up admissions in other colleges would also be eligible for the proposed separate counselling.

The official also said that the same merit list would be followed in such a scenario.
