Medical college gets nod to admit students

The Medical Council of India ( MCI ) has given a ‘Letter of Permission’ to Indira Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute to admit second batch of students for 2011 – 2012.

College officials said that confirmation about the MCI’s decision came early on 27th June, 2011. The institute would now be able to admit a total of 150 students for the coming academic year.

However, not all seats would be filled through the Centralised Admissions Committee ( CENTAC ). Officials said that 15 per cent of seats would be allotted to the Central government, which would conduct an all – India entrance examination to admit students.

The government would also allot another 15 per cent of the 150 seats to NRI students, admissions to which would be conducted directly by the college.

Therefore, a total of 30 per cent or 45 seats would be unavailable for students through CENTAC counselling process.

Officials, however, said that if the 45 seats set aside for the NRI and Central quota do not get filled before the second phase of counselling, they would then be included in the CENTAC admissions process for other students to compete.

They also said that counselling process is expected to begin anytime after 10th July, 2011.

  1. IGMC RI, in Puducherry does not offer any promotion to its already existing faculty who are eligible according to MCI. There are many faculty who are remaining as Assistant Professor when they are eligible for professor.
    Instead, faculty posts are filled by fresh recruitments.
    So anyone who wants to join this institute, be prepared to remain in the same post into which you are recruited for the rest of your career.
