The admission to MBBS and postgraduate medical and dental courses in all colleges including private and deemed universities will be conducted through a state level common Counselling based on National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) scores, reports IE
As per the notification of Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry issued on March 10, 2017, it is mandatory for all State governments to hold a common Counselling for admission to MBBS and post graduate medical courses.
All the medical aspirants seeking admission in MBBS in any college of deemed university, are required to appear in NEET. This will prevent the sale of seats by Private colleges.
The Private medical colleges set the fees according to the student seeking admission. A common Counselling will help streamline the admission process and private medical colleges will not be able to sell seats. The move will also prevent the private colleges from charging donations and capitation fee.
The notification amending the two laws governing the admission to MBBS and PG courses do not confirm the fees that medical colleges can collect. The centre has made amendments to the Graduate Medical Education Regulations, 1997 and the Post-Graduate Medical Education Regulation 2000, to make the State-level counselling compulsory.
The Director-General of Health Services (DGHS) will continue to govern admissions under the 15 per cent All India-quota in State government-run colleges. The private medical colleges were not controlled by the government till date. The new system will regulate the admission in private colleges and also prevent the high fees charged by them.
