Parleys on Medical Seats Surrender Successful Minister

With the fate of recognition for some private medical colleges in the State yet undecided, the government is able to provide, at best, a reasonable estimate of the number of seats that will be surrendered by private colleges to the State quota.

Health Minister V.S. Vijay told The Hindu that parleys with private medical colleges were successful and all of them that had the necessary MCI clearance had promised to give the specified percentage of their seats to the State pool.

“All these seats will be available in the first round of counselling itself, which begins on 30th June 2011,” Dr. Vijay said. A total of 767 seats will be available if MCI clearance is granted in the next few days for two private medical colleges.

Ten private medical colleges affiliated to Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University have agreed to shift the seats to the State pool.

These colleges are mandated to surrender 65 per cent of their total number of seats, the only exception being in the case of minority institutions that have to surrender 50 per cent. There are four such minority institutions.

The Melmaruvathur Adiparasakthi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research will give 65 per cent of its total of 150 seats – 97 seats to the government pool.

So also will PSG Institute of Medical Sciences, Coimbatore. Perunthurai Medical College, Perunthurai will hand over 39 seats, as usual, being 65 per cent of its total of 60 seats. The four minority institutions will be required to surrender 50 per cent of their seats.
