Chief Minister N Rangasamy said that steps would be taken to establish a State Medical Council to monitor admission, infrastructure and collection of fees in private medical colleges.

Raising the issue during question hour, A Anbazhagan (AIADMK) said that the Territorial administration lacked control over the functioning of the medical colleges. He alleged that seats were ‘sold’ for crores of ruppes.

Further, the AIADMK leader said that no post graduate seats have been secured from the colleges under government pool despite the notification by Medical Council of India in this regard.

Students from Puducherry are not getting opportunity to do their post graduation due to the high fees, he said.

Pointing out that students from other states were securing admission by paying the high fees, he said that government should get the list of tudents admitted from other states.

Congress MLA C Jayakumar said that even the minority status is being misused as they were not admitting students from that community for which they have been given the status. On the other hand, they were securing concessions both from Government of India as well as Puducherry Administration.

DMK MLA A M H Nazeem, who was the former Health Minister said that there was no control and the colleges were doing as they please and stressed the need to bring the institutions under government control.
