BANGALORE: Here is good news for students from the state who are aspiring to bag undergraduate medical seats for the current academic year.

The Supreme Court has directed two private medical colleges in the state to surrender their seats to the state government. While hearing a petition filed by BGS Institute of Medical Sciences and KIMS, Bangalore, questioning the Medical Council of India (MCI) rejecting renewal of their affiliation for the current year, the SC asked them to surrender the seats.

KIMS needs to surrender 30 additional seats and BGS 150 seats. Also, there are 115 vacant All-India Quota seats. In 2013-14, MCI had given conditional approval to these colleges but following their failure to fulfil certain conditions, the Council revoked the affiliation.
