Special counselling on 5 October to fill lone medical seat
PUDUCHERRY: The centralized admission committee (Centac) will hold a special counselling on October 5 to fill the lone vacancy (general category) in the Indira Gandhi Government Medical College and Research Institute. The counselling will commence at 9am on the committee premises in the Pondicherry Engineering College campus. The candidates with merit marks ranging between 200 and 179.666 can attend the counselling with all their original certificates and one set of photocopies of all documents and a demand draft for Rs 750 (Rs 300 for scheduled caste and backward tribes). The candidate can download counselling call letters from the website www.centaconline.in.
The committee decided to hold special counselling after various students' and parents' forums condemned the lethargic attitude of the government in filling up the vacant seat before September 30, the deadline set by the Supreme Court to complete MBBS admission. Meanwhile the forums have urged the Centac to post the list of students admitted to government and private medical colleges in Puducherry in its website to ensure transparency in the admission process. They charged that private medical colleges that have not filled up vacant seats have been receiving huge capitation fees and admitting students after the deadline. More Details Click Here
