Has the centralized counseling of post-graduate medical seats for the management /NRI quota category held in the month of May and June 2017 failed to reach the objective of transparency of allotment of seats?

The answer is absolute ‘Yes’. Earlier to 2016 & 2017, there were complaints that the seats were being sold in the name of management / NRI quota and hence transparency is needed to give merit its due credit.

However, this academic year of 2017, though there was transparent centralized counseling.

The result, the seats were left unfilled.

The reason, the fees of the private medical colleges was exorbitantly high.

Hence though, the process of allotment of medical PG seats was transparent, but the NEET qualified candidates could not afford to pay the requisite fees.





Thus the left over seats went to the management of private medical colleges, which were given to the management / NRI quota eligible and NEET qualified candidates; who could afford to pay the requisite annual tuition fees; as declared by the respective association of private medical colleges and the deemed university medical colleges.

Did Not Understand about Centralized Counseling of Post-Graduate Medical Seats?

I did not understand, what was the purpose of this so-called centralized counseling of Post Graduate Medical seats?

Previous years, prior to 2016 and 2017, the same rich candidates of wealthy parents could afford to take admission in the management / NRI quota by paying exorbitant fees.



This year also the same thing happened. Only the rich could afford to take admission under management / NRI quota Post-Graduate Medical Seats.

So the climax of this article is that, centralized counseling or no centralized counseling.

No purpose has been served.

Except that only qualified NEET candidates could take admission.

This is the only saving grace to the present government; by conducting centralized counseling of post-graduate medical seats under management / NRI quota seats.
