441 PG medical seats allotted

Only 63 seats remained vacant as the second day of counselling for postgraduate medical courses concluded at the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) here on Tuesday.

In the first two days, as many as 441 out of 504 seats under the entrance quota have been allotted.

According to an RGUHS official, more than 50 vacant seats are of the diploma course. Only about 10 PG degree seats were to be filled, he added. On day two, counselling was conducted up to rank No 3000.

A total of 741 seats were up for grabs at the counselling. Of them, 504 seats were to be filled through the entrance quota, 215 through the in-service quota, and 22 seats in the physically handicapped (PH) quota.

While all seats under the PH quota have been picked up, the in-service quota seats will be chosen on Wednesday, the last day of the first round of counselling.
Comed-K penalty

The Consortium of Medical, Engineering, and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (Comed-K) has issued a warning to candidates appearing for its counselling scheduled for May 17 and 18, that students would have to surrender the seats, if they want to, before the second round of counselling on May 28.

They would have to pay Rs 50,000, if they do not surrender the seat before the second round of counselling begins, A S Srikanth, Chief Executive, Comed-K, said in a statement on Tuesday.

The moves comes a day after the huge forfeiture penalty caused a stir among students at the RGUHS counselling,

“Students who are issued the allotment order, but fail to report to college (before the second round of counselling) will have to cough up Rs 50,000,” he said.

According to Srikanth, the move will discourage the menace of seat blocking, which frustrates meritorious students.
