Bengaluru: The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) will start postgraduate medical and dental counseling between May 23 and 27, while the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) will hold it on May 27.
But the state government is yet to finalise the PG seat matrix and decide on the fee structure for the government quota seats in private colleges.
The delay in PG seat matrix and fee structure is worrying the PG medical students, who allege that it would allow private colleges to manipulate the available seats to the merit category and would hide all the valuable clinical seats, surrendering only those seats that are not in demand.
They said that two years ago, private colleges, taking advantage of a similar delay, had succeeded in taking away the clinical seats from the RGUHS PGET counseling list, which had triggered protests from students all across the State.
“If the consensual agreement is signed at the last minute, there will definitely be confusion over seats earmarked for government students in private colleges,” said a PG seat aspirant.
