MCI Banned 67 Medical Colleges - Controversies surrounding the News
As per the latest notice from MCi some colleges assuring students admission in their medical course had demanded capitation fee. Students are advised not to be misled by any such false statements made by these college authorities because these activities are illegal. This was the reason behind the debarring the colleges, MCI said.
- Colleges from various states, including Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Punjab, etc. that have not been granted permission for admitting students for the academic year 2017-18 and 2018-19.
- In another advisory published by MCI recently, the body had asked the students to follow the common counselling either done by the Directorate General of Health Services, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India for 15% all India quota seats in Government Medical Colleges of the contributing states and for all MBBS seats in Medical Colleges run by Deemed Universities or by the Designated Authority of the State/Union Territory Government in respect of MBBS seats in Government Medical Colleges and Non-Governmental Medical Colleges, reported NDTV.
MCI has also warned the students not to take admission without the common counselling as it will be regarded illegal. This year NEET examination was surrounded by controversies. Two supervisors and two exam centres in Greater Noida and Chandigarh where NEET 2016 exam was conducted, aided few students to cheat. The Indian Express claims that according to the charge sheet a detailed conspiracy was hatched to help students cheat.
Also last month NEET was in the news for hacking the online-conducted exam across centres in the country. Students had also alleged of bribes being used to give seats to deserving candidates and they demanded a CBI probe into the matter. NEET examination is already been a tiring experience for the aspirants and it’s essential that the admission process is conducted smoothly. Those students who have cleared the NEET exam should not face any more difficulties in getting admission in colleges.
