PUDUCHERRY: The Medical Council of India (MCI) has issued a direction to seven private medical colleges, including four deemed universities, in the Union Territory to discharge 95 students who were not admitted to Post Graduate courses through the general counselling held by Centac in the current academic year.

In its letter sent to the seven colleges and marked to Lt. Governor Kiran Bedi and other officials, the MCI has pulled up Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Manakula Vinayagar Medical College, Venkateswara Medical College, Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute, Vinayaga Mission Medical, Arupadai Veedu Medical College and Sri Lakshminarayana Medical College.

PIMS admitted 16 students outside the ambit of counselling, Manakula Vinayagar 15, Venkateswara 6, Mahatma Gandhi Institute 23, Vinayagar Mission 21, Arupadai Veedu 13 and Sri Lakshminarayana one student. “Admission was not in accordance with Section 9 (A) of Post Graduate Medical Education Regulation Act, 2000, which mandates admission only through common counselling,” the MCI has stated. The MCI has found that these students were admitted to various medical PG programmes through Centac, but not in the courses they chose during the counselling.
