Only 50 additional medical seats added

AP HAD SUBMITTED PROPOSALS TO INCREASE INTAKE BY 500 SEATS
The state government’s hope of getting additional medical seats for the current academic year 2011-12 is dashed, as the Medical Council of India has put the proposals to increase seats on hold.

While the state government has submitted proposals to increase the intake by 500 seats, the MCI has approved only 150 additional seats within the cut-off date of June 30, even as the first phase of Eamcet medical counselling begins from July 17. It has also withheld approval for 100 seats in a private medical college in Srikakulam for this year.

With this, only 50 additional seats will be available in medical colleges for this year.

At present, the state has 14 government and 23 private medical colleges with an intake of 4,700 seats. While 2,800 MBBS seats are available in private medical colleges, the remaining 1,900 seats are in government medical colleges.

The government has proposed doubling the intake in Osmania and Gandhi medical colleges and increasing the intake in other government medical colleges.

The government was confident that the MCI would approve the proposals but it has not done so within the cut-off date of June 30 for this year.

The NTR University of Health Sciences, which conducts the Eamcet medical counselling, is hoping the approval will come through during the second phase of counselling.

“We will conduct the first phase of counselling from July 17. If the MCI approves any additional seats later, we will include them in the second phase,” said Mr T. Venugopala Rao, the registrar of NTRUHS.

The MCI has so far approved 100 extra seats in Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Ongole, and an additional 50 seats in Katuri Medical College, Guntur but it has not approved 100 extra seats in Great Eastern Medical School, Srikakulam.
