Government quota seats in both the private colleges will be allotted in successive admission rounds conducted by the Karnataka Examinations Authority. The private quota seats in S.S. Institute of Medical Sciences have already been allotted during the COMEDK counselling on a 'risk category' basis.
Re - Inspection
These colleges had been withdrawn from the seat matrix after the then newly - appointed Medical Council of India Board of Governors ordered re - inspection of as many as 81 colleges that had been granted approval in March.
These developments had followed the dissolution of the body following the involvement of the MCI Chairman Ketan Desai in a corruption racket.
The Board of Governors conducted detailed re - inspections in all the said colleges in June. The admission rounds that commenced on 9th June, 2010 could not include these seats. With this, the total number of medical seats that is on offer under the government quota allotted by the Karnataka Examinations Authority, will go up to around 1,800.
On Wednesday, the Board of Governors of the MCI, which is now completely in charge of medical education and admissions, issued a directive to all State governments to complete the medical admissions for 2010 - 2011 by 31st August, 2010.
This date has been advanced from 31st September, 2010.
KEA to Conform
"We have received this order informally. But it should not be an issue considering our first round of engineering admissions is slated to be completed on 10th August, 2010. We will complete the second round of medical admissions after that," a senior KEA official told.
