Govt to hold seat counselling for NEET

The state government will conduct counselling for medical and dental seats that would be made available under NEET.

Minister for Medical Education Sharan Prakash Patil had earlier proposed to Union Health Minister J P Nadda that the state would have a single agency to counsel students for seats in private, government, deemed and minority colleges. According to sources in private colleges, the minister made a similar proposal at a meeting with them on Monday. Patil, along with Higher Education Minister T B Jayachandra and the respective principal secretaries, held a meeting, which saw the participation of private colleges.

While members of the Karnataka Professional Colleges Foundation stuck to their stand that they would not spare the government any seats in private colleges, but fill them only through NEET, the government is trying to negotiate with them. “We are still in talks with them. Discussions have taken place on several issues and we are exploring the possibilities. We will consider legal options if they don’t budge from their stand,” he added.
