A special allotment session for admissions on 65 medical seats at King George's Medical University (KGMU) will take place at the telemedicine center of Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences from 10 am onwards on Tuesday.
Admissions for these seats were stuck in a legal battle between KGMU and Medical Council of India (MCI) after the latter derecognised them.
Medical education department officials termed the session as a 'mop up round' besides clarifying that it should not be seen as counselling. However, once allotment against all seats is done, admission process would be initiated and finalized on the spot.
Against the expected upward shift of merit, a new set of candidates would be allowed to participate in the re-allotment and take admission against them.
According to the director general of medical education, candidates who have already taken admission on a medical seat in any of the state medical colleges are not eligible to participate.
Dental faculty students are eligible to participate. These candidates will be expected to resign from their college and appear for counselling with all original documents. Candidates who took admission in state ayurvedic and homeopathy colleges have also been allowed. They have also been exempted from resigning from their colleges to participate in the mop up round only if they bring in all original documents.
Medical education officials clarified that students who resign from their seats will not be allowed to take admission on the same seat. The officials also stated that candidates would be given admission on merit-cum-option basis.
