Government permitted to fill Unoccupied PG Seats

There is good news for graduate medical students seeking admission to postgraduate (PG) courses under the government quota both in private and government medical colleges.

The Supreme Court has granted a week's time to the State Government, along with several other States to fill vacant seats for PG courses. The State Government's plea in the Supreme Court has benefitted medical students across the country since there are a large number of PG vacancies in medical colleges.

Sources in the State Government told that there are 41 PG seats on offer. By an order issued on Tuesday, directions have been issued to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences to immediately notify the students concerned (based on the Postgraduate Common Entrance Test) and complete admissions by forenoon on Saturday. The Government has also conveyed that counselling for admissions to these seats should be conducted on Friday and Saturday.

The Secretary to Government, Department of Medical Education, I.M. Vittala Murthy, had written to the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare seeking extension of time to fill the PG seats that became vacant when students who had obtained admission in the State quota opted for other colleges after having obtained admissions under the all - India quota. In all, 34 seats were vacant on this score.

Added to this were one dental PG seat and six seats left vacant in the State PG quota with students who had obtained admission not completing admission formalities.

In his letter, Mr. Murthy said following the extension of time for admission of students to postgraduate courses under the all - India quota (granted by the Supreme Court), 34 students admitted here had opted for other colleges and these seats could not be filled unless time was extended.

"It is unfair to the students and the colleges, more so at a time when there is a crying demand for specialist doctors and teaching personnel in medical colleges." A petition was then moved in the apex court.
