Quota ratio for medical colleges in H-K region ready

The Health and Family Welfare department has charted out the Hyderabad-Karnataka (H-K) reservation ratio in medical colleges in the State. 

The non-HK region students aspiring for medical seats this year, will have fewer options for seats in medical colleges in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region. 

According to a notification issued by the department on February 1, medical colleges in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region will have to reserve 70 per cent of the seats for students from the region. This includes colleges in Bidar, Gulbarga, Yadgir, Raichur, Koppal and Bellary districts. 

As per the list, the government medical and dental colleges that will have 70 per cent reservation for students from H-K region are: Bidar Institute of Medical Sciences, Bidar; ESI Medical College and PGIMSR, Gulbarga; Government Dental College, Bellary; Raichur Institute of Medical Sciences, Raichur; and Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences, Bellary. All these colleges have 100 seats each for MBBS as sanctioned by the Medical Council of India, except in Vijayanagar Institute which has 150 seats. The Government Dental College, Bellary, has 50 seats for BDS. 

Out of the available medical seats for undergraduate courses, 15 per cent will be reserved for all-India quota. 

Of the remaining seats, 70 per cent will be reserved for students from the H-K region. In this 70 per cent, 50 per cent will be for GM and the rest for SC, ST and OBC students. 

Apart from government medical colleges, 70 per cent reservation will also have to be given to local students in the government share of seats in private colleges. 

The nine unaided colleges which are listed under the “regional institutions,” include S Nijalingappa Dental College, Gulbarga, Navodaya Dental College, Raichur and Navodaya Medical College, Raichur.

In the rest of the medical colleges in the State, eight per cent of seats will be reserved for students from the Hyderabad-Karnataka region. 

These colleges have been classified as statewide institutions, for this purpose. Last year, there were 2,597 government medical seats under the CET quota.

No additional seats

In the existing colleges, it is unlikely that the seat intake will be increased for this year. Officials in the medical education department said the approval for increase in intake has to come from the the Medical Council of India and they cannot suddenly take such a decision. 

Sources said Bidar Medical College had sought additional seats which was likely to be approved for the academic year 2015-16.
