Seat-sharing agreement to be signed in a week

Addressing reporters after a meeting with officials regarding the fee structure and the seat-sharing formula for medical courses, Gowda said: “The point of reference for the fee structure for students selecting MBBS seats in private colleges has been discussed. The fee for seats in government quota in the private colleges  will remain the same.”

He said that a two-tier system of fee would be introduced which would have one fee for the seats in the government quota and a different one for the seats as per the Consortium Of Medical Engineering and Dental colleges Karnataka (COMEDK). “The point of reference for the same has been arrived at to dispel the disparity in fees between government and COMEDK seats,” Gowda said.

He added that in the one man commission headed by the retired judge, constituted to solve the admissions issues, may also seek assistance from university vice chancellors, registrars or assistant professors. He also said that inclusions would be made to the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) Bill, which is to be tabled this year. The two tier system of fee structure too will be included in the Bill so that there will no legal objection about the fee, he added.
