Staff Reporter

VISAKHAPATNAM: To help Muslims avail themselves of the 5 per cent reservation announced by the State Government, dates for submitting applications for medical counselling should be extended, according to the president of the Society of Intellectual Voice, I.M. Ahmed.

The last dates for receipt of applications for medical counselling were July 4 and 6 respectively.

In a statement here on Tuesday, he pointed out that it would take time for obtaining the caste and income certificates from the MRO concerned, essential for claiming the reservation.

Hence, the need for extension of dates, he observed.
