Despite warnings, notices and even threats of FIR, private medical and dental colleges in the state are going ahead with holding parallel counselling and admission process. The students who are taking admission in the private colleges who have registered themselves in government counselling are being forced to get registered again by the private colleges.
Directorate of Medical Education is conducting the centralised admission and counselling process, under which the students are been allocated the seats of government and private colleges, according to their merit. From August 31 to September 3, the department has conducted the process of allocation of the seats and on September 4, the allotment result was declared.
The students who are taking admissions in the private colleges are not complaining the matter to the government, because as per rules if they fail to take admission in the colleges, they will not be entitled to get space in the second counselling and they will lose their seats.
Taking the advantage of this rule the private colleges are compelling the students to register themselves in the private colleges. The students have to pay Rs 400 as registration fees and have to accept the terms and conditions of the college.
