Notification to pertain to UG courses at veterinary colleges in Bidar, Hassan and Shimoga for 2013-14

The State government will issue a notification on Friday for admissions to undergraduate courses in Government Veterinary Colleges of Bidar, Hassan and Shimoga in the current academic year (2013-14).

The Veterinary Council of India (VCI) has granted permission for admission of students in three veterinary colleges this year, Minister for Animal Husbandry T.B. Jayachandra said.

He told presspersons that the government has to release of Rs. 138 crore and Rs. 136 crore respectively for Shimoga and Hassan colleges, to develop infrastructure.

The VCI declined to grant permission for admissions to government colleges citing lack of adequate infrastructure.

The government set up these colleges in 2007 to address the issue of shortage of veterinary doctors in the State. The VCI declared invalid the degree certificates issued by the Karnataka Veterinary, Animal and Fisheries Science University, Bidar. Mr. Jayachandra said cadre and recruitment rules would be amended, if needed, to recruit candidates who had obtained degree certificates from the three colleges in the previous years.
