BENGALURU: The state government’s idea of conducting centralised counselling to allot undergraduate seats for medical and dental courses may not be fruitful this year too. Though the government communicated to private college managements about its plans to conduct centralised counselling for undergraduate medical and dental courses for the academic year 2017-18, private college managements have not agreed to it.
M K Panduranga Setty, Chairman of RV Group of Institutions and Secretary of Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering College Managements told Express, “We have received communication from the government, but we are not for it. .”
Meanwhile, minority private medical college managements have decided to join hands with Consortium of Medical Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK).
“It has been decided between COMEDK and Karnataka Religious and Linguistic Minority Private Colleges Association (KRLMPCA) to conduct the counselling under COMEDK.
So there is no question of joining with state government or Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA),” said Setty.
He also said that deemed and private universities will also come under this.
