CET Cell to hold round for medical and ayurveda college seats

While ten seats are available from the Government of India quota in medical colleges, in the wake of approval accorded by All India Central Council of Ayurveda, seats in 21 ayurveda colleges would be filled up, he told reporters.

The Ayurveda council had withheld permission to admit students in these colleges earlier raising questions about infrastructure issues, which has now been sorted out, he said.

The government has convened a meeting of private medical and dental colleges on September 30 to disucss theirdemand for an upward revision in fee structure for seats they offer to merit students under government quota.

Every private college has to surrender 42 seats out of 100 capacity to the government to which the CET selects students for admission.

The managements have placed the demand for a hike, saying the free structure fixed about some years ago remained unrevised so far and their operation costs have gone up.

Acharya said the government wants to convince the private college managements to continue with existing fee considering that any hike would burden poor students.
