Bangalore,Mar 31, DH News Service:

Racing against time, and with just about 28 days for the Common Entrance Test 2010 to commence, the State government signed the consensual agreement on seat matrix and fee structure for MBBS and BDS courses with private college managements here on Wednesday.

The deal is struck.

The deal is struck.   The seat-sharing formula and fee structure will be the same as last year, Medical Education Minister Ramchandra Gowda said.

For institutions under the Consortium Of Medical Engineering Dental Colleges- Karnataka, 42 per cent of MBBS seats will be under government quota and 58 per cent with the managements. For BDS courses, the seat matrix is 35 per cent for the government and 65 per cent for private college managements. In private minority institutions, the seat matrix is 25 per cent for the government and 75 per cent for management for both MBBS and BDS courses.

Gowda said: “The interests of poor and meritorious students has been kept in mind while signing the agreement.” 

About the fee increase for medical courses in private institutions, Gowda said a committee headed by a retired judge will be constituted to retrospect the fee hike and that the preliminary report will be reviewed by the government before proceeding with further legal action.

Although, in principle, private institutions had agreed to seat matrix and a fee structure, the government had failed to constitute a fee determination committee which was to submit details of fee charged by government, private and minority institutions for BE, MBBS and BDS courses.

The total number of MBBS seats is 4,069 of which 1,873 are government seats that can be obtained by CET in private institutions which includes minority institutions.

The total number of BDS seats is 2,360, of which 793 seats are under government quota.
The fee for MBBS government seats in COMED-K and minority institutions is Rs 35,000 and for BDS course it is Rs 25,000.

The fee under management quota is Rs 3.25 lakh for MBBS seats and Rs 2.3 lakhs for BDS seats.

As much as 33 per cent of post graduate medical seats are under the government quota, while 20 per cent seats in minority institutions belong to the same category.

Of the total 225 post graduate medical degree seats in government colleges, 119  are state quota seats.

In private medical colleges, of the total 619 Post Graduate medical degree seats 186 belong to government quota while 433 are management quota seats.
