Postgraduate medical admissions to begin from tomorrow-Gujarat
AHMEDABAD: Admission to the postgraduate (PG) medical courses will begin on July 3. The forms can be downloaded from the website of the medical committee of BJ Medical College. The admission to the PG courses will be based only on the NEET examination conducted in 2013.

The Admission Committee for Professional Medical Educational Courses has stated that students seeking admission to the 650 PG seats will have to come in person to the dean of Sola Medical College and submit the form. The form has to be accompanied with a demand draft of Rs 1,000.

The committee stated that admission will be subject to the rules and regulation of the state government and also to the outcome of the ongoing litigation in the Gujarat high court. Several students have questioned the state government's decision to give admission to PG medical courses on the basis of NEET. The court made it clear that even if counseling takes place, it would also be subject to the final outcome of this petition.

Earlier Gujarat University (GU) had decided to form its own admission committee, but following the state government notification for a common merit list, the GU has still not formed the committee.
