Procedure for Allocating Medical Seats
In so far as the Central Government is concerned admission to 15% of open seats in MBBS/BDS and 50% of open seats in PG (MD/MS/MDS), which are available to students on all India basis irrespective of the State or University from which they come from, is granted purely on merit on the basis of all India entrance examination conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education and All India Institute of Medical Sciences respectively. The States of Jammu & Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh do not participate in the all India quota Scheme which has been framed and approved by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare is also maintaining a central Pool of MBBS/BDS seats by seeking voluntary contribution of seats from donor States/UTs/Medical Institutions and in –turn allocating these seats to those States/UTs which are not have medical colleges of their own and to some Government Departments. The selection of candidates against these seats is made on merit basis by the beneficiary States/UTs/Government Departments.
This information was given by Minister for Health & Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
