7 medical colleges may lose seats to govt pool

The undergraduate and postgraduate seats in seven medical colleges in the State are likely to go to the government’s pool of seats in 2014-15, following the suspension of their “linguistic minority” status.

Mahaboob Khan, under secretary to the Health and Family Welfare department, has directed the Karnataka Religious Linguistic Minority Professional Colleges Association to issue an immediate disclosure statement in the interest of students that the status of these seven colleges as linguistic minority colleges is under suspension.

The colleges are AJ Institute of Medical Sciences, MVJ Medical College, Navodaya Medical College, Rajarajeshwari Medical College, Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinivasa Institute of Medical Sciences and Saptagiri Medical College. In a letter to the Association, dated February 21, the under secretary notes that the seats in all these colleges are likely to go to the government quota for 2014-15.

He has stated that while the department had written to the Association seeking details on the examination to be conducted for the linguistic minority institutions, the association had failed to reply on time. Further, in a delayed reply, the Association had given “incomplete” details.
