MCI stopped MBBS admissions in Karnatala
The Medical Council of India (MCI) has stopped MBBS admission to Bidar Institute of Medical Science (BIMS) and Raichur Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) medical colleges in Karnataka.

From both the colleges around 200 seats may lose by the students.

According to official information here, the MCI had ordered these colleges not to admit students for the first year MBBS courses this year citing failure on the part of the colleges to fulfill council norms.

The MCI had also turned down the proposal to increase the intake from existing 150 to 250 in Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute and 150 to 200 seats in Mysore Medical College and Research Institute.

Karnataka Medical Education Minister Sharanprakash Patil said, "BIMS and RIMS would not be able to admit the students this year. There was no need to panic since the State was in the process of persuading the MCI to reverse its decision."

The Karnataka government was sending the Principal Secretary of the Medical Education Department, and the Director of Medical Education to New Delhi immediately to meet MCI officials and plead the State's case for allowing the admissions in these two medical colleges.

The government would also request the MCI to reconsider its decision on not allowing increased intake in the medical colleges in Bangalore and Mysore.

Dr Patil said that the seat matrix for the medical seats in CET would be fixed after knowing the response from the MCI on the State's plea.
