No MCI nod yet for seven medical colleges

Medical seat aspirants in the State have fewer subsidised seats this time as seven medical colleges, including the two ESIC Medical Colleges in Bengaluru and Kalaburagi and five private colleges, are yet to get the nod of the Medical Council of India (MCI).

Minister of State for Medical Education Sharanprakash R. Patil said the government had already filed compliance report of the deficiencies pointed out by the inspection team of the MCI which visited the ESIC Medical Colleges in Bengaluru and Kalaburagi. However, the Executive Committee of the MCI is yet to take a decision on allowing the admission of the students in these two colleges this year.

Mr. Patil said that as per the information available with him, the five private medical colleges that failed to get favourable nod from the MCI to admit students this year have decided to move court. Last year also, a few medical colleges that were denied permission by the MCI to admit students had approached the Supreme Court, which permitted admission of the students in these colleges and asked the State government to fill all these seats under the government quota.

Mr. Patil said that he was hopeful of the MCI giving permission to the two ESIC Medical Colleges to admit students soon. Though the first round of counselling for the Common Entrance Test rank holders is over, the additional seats available in these two colleges would be included in the seat matrix for the next rounds of admission if they get approval, he added.

The Dental Council of India (DCI) has also denied permission to admit students in the Government Dental College in Bellari.
