BENGALURU: With private college managements not showing any interest towards conducting a centralised counselling, post graduate medical seat aspirants would probably have to attend more than one counselling the coming year.

The state government had proposed to start a centralised counselling system for post-graduate medical courses for the academic year 2017-18 to reduce pressure on students and provide services through a single agency.

A meeting conducted by state Medical Education Minister Dr Sharan Prakash Patil on Wednesday did not come to any conclusion either.

This idea of centralised counselling was opposed by the deemed medical universities. “The minority colleges are ready to join hands with the department and hold a common counselling, but the problem is with the deemed medical universities,” the official said.
