Karnataka government sought 25% seats from the minority medical and dental colleges through CET counselling, reports Deccan Herald.
A senior member of the minority colleges’ association, who had earlier this week met Medical Education Minister Dr. Sharan Prakash Patil, told that the Karnataka govt has asked for 25 percent of seat share as per the consensual agreement, which means that the minority colleges in the state will give the state govt 25 per cent quota of seats through Common Entrance Test.
The minority institutions had sought 15 days time to minority colleges to take the decision. An association member of minority colleges’ association said: “When NEET has been declared as the single entrance exam for medical seats, is it not injustice to fill the seats based on state CET ranking?”
The government also had a meeting with private unaided colleges and sought a 40% seat share from them. However, the private colleges denied the sharing of seats, saying the agreement with the government was invalid following the NEET ordinance. Patil has sought a legal opinion in this regard.
