237 seats filled by end of day two

Some deemed universities yet to confirm fee structure for biology based courses


PUDUCHERRY: Though the second day of counselling for medical courses through the Centralised Admissions Committee (CENTAC) got over on Sunday, some deemed universities are yet to confirm their fee structure for the biology based courses.

As per the fee structure sheet pasted on the CENTAC premises, only five private colleges have confirmed their fee structure for MBBS and other biology based courses.

According to a CENTAC official, there has been no correspondence from two deemed universities regarding the fee for the courses though a tentative figure was given to CENTAC earlier.

Parents and students at the counselling said that non-declaration of the fee structure is causing them a lot of inconvenience as it is a vital factor in choosing a particular college.

Some, though wanting to take seats in these deemed universities, abstained from doing so as they feared a high fee collection.

Parents also complained that the fee sheet for five colleges that declared the fee structure was pasted only late afternoon on the second day.

At Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute, the proposed fee for MBBS course is Rs. 4,35,000 which is inclusive of tuition fees and other expenses.

At Indira Gandhi Institute of Dental Sciences, the fee for dental course has been fixed at Rs. 1,22, 500. As regards Vinayaka Missions Medical College, Karaikal, the fee for MBBS course is Rs. 4, 58, 550.

Out of 261 seats available for MBBS courses through the government quota in the private medical colleges, 237 seats were filled by the end of day two of counselling.

All seats at the Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) were taken at the end of the morning sessions.

In total, there are 24 seats left in six private medical colleges for the remaining sessions.

Also, the quota woes continued for students on the second day as some of them were denied admissions due to the three-year schooling and five-year resident certificate clauses governing the regional reservation policy.
