RGUHS postpones PG counselling

Reason: Non-receipt of seat matrix from the State government

The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has postponed the counselling process for post graduate courses on April 7, following a government order.

Despite announcing the seat matrix and fee structure for medical and dental undergraduate and postgraduate courses just a few weeks before the commencement of Common Entrance Test 2010, the Department of Medical Education issued orders to RGUHS to postpone the counselling process for postgraduate courses.

The counselling has been postponed, due to the non-receipt of seat matrix from the government. According to RGUHS, the dates for counselling will be announced later. After battling legal hurdles posed by students due to the key answer mistakes in the postgraduate entrance test (PGET), RGUHS had announced the schedule for counselling to begin as announced earlier.

Although the PG medical and dental courses counselling is conducted in March every year, the dates for the commencement of the counselling remains uncertain. Thousands of students who were eligible to appear for the counselling have been affected due to the postponement of the seat selection process.
According to sources, the communication from the medical colleges regarding the number of medical seats that is to be submitted to the government has not been processed and the Directorate of Medical Education had failed to initiate the task of receiving the seat matrix from private medical institutions.

Ramifications
However, the ramifications of the delay in the announcement of the seat matrix is large. The Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK), which schedules the counselling process for postgraduate courses after RGUHS ends its counselling process, will now continue with the seat selection process as per the schedule from April 10 to 12.

Dr S Kumar, Executive Director, COMEDK said that schedule of the counselling process will remain unchanged. Students who have written both RGUHS PGET and COMEDK PGET will now have to appear for the COMEDK PG counselling process first, paying more than Rs six lakh for a medical degree course per year. “COMEDK has already dispatched the rank cards to more than 4,000 eligible candidates to attend the seat selection process along with the time, date and venue of the counselling.

As majority of the candidates are non-Karnataka students, the rescheduling of the counselling process will not arise and COMEDK will stick to the announced schedule,” Dr Kumar added.
