The seat allotment process for postgraduate medical and dental courses in government colleges and for government quota in private colleges in Karnataka, conducted by the Rajiv Gandhi University for Health Sciences (RGUHS), was rescheduled for the second time this year on Saturday.

The counselling will now be held on Sunday from 8 a.m.

The counselling, which started with physically challenged candidates, was stopped midway following protests by students who alleged that the seat matrix had not been made properly.

The students protested against the clubbing of the seat allotment for the nine candidates who were allegedly involved in cheating and in-service candidates (working under the Department of Health and Family Welfare).

Seats were being allotted from a common pool and in-service candidates said this violated Medical Council of India guidelines.

Cancelled

Counselling was earlier rescheduled following a High Court order cancelling the provisional allotment of seats made during the first round of counselling.
