MBBS seats filled in pvt colleges, doubts raised over counselling


Bhopal, India - Oct. 6, 2016: Medical admission process started under the video camera at Gandhi Medical college in Bhopal, India, on Thursday.
Admissions for all the 469 vacant MBBS seats in the eight private medical colleges of Madhya Pradesh was completed in the third round offline counselling at 1am on Saturday, but students’ unions and activists alleged a scam.
According to the Supreme Court’s directive to the state directorate of medical education (DME), the counselling was to end by Friday midnight.
“There is a huge scam. The seats are not filled by genuine candidates; colleges sold out seats at `50 to 60 lakh,” said former MLA Paras Saklecha, who moved the high court against the admissions. The case will come up for hearing on October 13.
ABVP workers staged a demonstration around Friday midnight against the offline process.
“There was a conspiracy of the directorate of medical education and private medical college owners behind conducting the third round of counselling in offline mode. We visited Gandhi Medical College, Bhopal and we didn’t find any counselling there. There was one-to-one interaction taking place between colleges’ representatives and candidates,” said ABVP district president Harsh Chandel.
“We met medical education director GS Patel and objected to this irregularity,” he said.
Patel said the DME followed the Supreme Court order and maintained transparency in the counselling.
The 578 BDS seats vacant
After the third round of counselling, 578 BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) seats remained vacant in private medical colleges. In the second and third round, 376 BDS seats were filled.
The Association of Private Dental and Medical Colleges (APDMC) will move the Supreme Court to fill the remaining seats.
“We are predicting this situation. The failure of the directorate of medical education to fill all seats affected BDS colleges. If more seats are not filled, it will be a major setback for BDS colleges,” said JN Chaurasiya, APDMC secretary.
“Every year colleges manage to fill the seats on their own; this year too, they should be allowed to do so. We will request the Supreme Court to allow colleges to fill their seats.”
DME director Patel said they would submit admission proceedings and status of vacant seats to the court. “We will request for a direction to fill vacant BDS seats,” he said.
