Article Posted: 16-04-2009

For the third year in a row, the Karnataka government and private professional colleges' associations on Wednesday agreed to follow the same fee structure for students taking admission to medical, dental and engineering colleges in the State this academic session.

The Supreme Court today approved a MoU reached between Karnataka government and Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental(COMED) colleges in the state on allotment of seats in private professional unaided non-minority colleges for the year 2009-10.

Under the said MoU, 42 per cent of the seats in the state private medical colleges will be filled up by the state government through its own Common Entrance Test while the remaining seats would be filled up by the respective colleges as per the stipulations contained in the COMED organised entrance exams.

For the Bachelor Dental Surgery (BDS) courses, the state government will fill up 35 per cent of seats through the CET while the rest would be filled up by the managements on the basis of the entrance conducted by the COMED.

Similarly, for engineering courses, the state would fill up 50 per cent of the seats through its CET and the remaining 50 per cent would be filled up by the managements through the COMED.

This is for the third time that such an MoU has been approved by the apex court. During the earlier two years also, the apex court had approved similar MoU as dispute relating to the seat-sharing formula is pending final adjudication before the court.
