Deccan College puts admissions in a spot

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, JULY 25. Medical admissions in minority colleges seem to be heading for a controversy with the Deccan College of Medical Sciences deciding to fill `C' and `D' category seats though students have already been admitted in these categories.

The college has called for applications through advertisements in a newspaper to fill seats in these categories that carry 15 and 10 per cent seats respectively. The college is going ahead with the admissions based on GO Ms 217, issued on July 23, that reportedly allows the management to fill seats in these categories. The `C' category is supposed to be filled with minority candidates only while other candidates can be admitted in `D' category. The prescribed fee for both categories is Rs. 2 lakhs.

Even as the college has called for applications, the Registrar of NTR University of Health Sciences told The Hindu that seats in these categories have already been filled by the Convenor. "We have admitted students as per rules," he said. The A.P. Minorities Educational Rights Protection Committee (APMERPC) said minority students are confused over the admission process and demanded the Government's intervention. "Where will the admitted students go if the college admits new students," asked, Mohd. Ansari, president of APMERPC.
