VIJAYAWADA: Ending the anxious moments for medical course aspirants in Telangana and AP states, the NTR University of Health Sciences issued a notification for admissions to fill MBBS and BDS seats.

After the Telangana government issued relevant GOs on Monday to facilitate the commencement of counselling, the AP government too issued the GO related to fee structure and management quota seats on Tuesday. The first phase of counselling will be held between August 30 and September 1 under open competition seats for first 8,500 ranks.

Eligible candidates can attend any one of the following counselling centres: JNTU Hyderabad; Kaktiya University, Warangal; Andhra University, Vishakapatnam; NTR University of Health Sciences, Vijayawada; and SV University, Tirupati.

In view of the Medical Council of India deadline, officials of the university said classes would begin on September 1 without fail. “With whatever number of candidates we will have from first two days of counselling, we will certainly begin the academic session on September 1,” university vice-chancellor Ravi Raju said.

Meanwhile, the second and third phases of counselling for reserved category candidates will be conducted between Sept 2-5. Besides, the special category seats (NCC, physically handicapped and others) will be filled on September 7 and 8.

Candidates are expected to present all relevant documents during counselling, failing which their admission would be in jeoprady.


 Unlike the Telangana government, the AP government has not heeded to the demands made by private medical colleges, but retained the existing fee structure for the current academic year too. A GO was issued by the government to this effect on Tuesday. Fee for all categories--convenor, management and NRI quota--will remain unchanged. It may be recalled that the Telangana government had allowed steep hike in MBBS fee for management seats.
