HYDERABAD: In a major revision of its previous orders, the state government on Saturday issued fresh orders retaining the convener seats in unaided minority medical colleges at 60 percent against the 50 percent convener quota norm that had been brought recently.

The tuition fee for these 60 per cent of seats, filled on the basis on EAMCET rank, has been retained at Rs 60,000 per annum. The revision is in response to the objections raised by MIM floor leader Akbarudddin Owaisi to the earlier orders issued on May 20, the orders read.

TS RET.JPGHowever, the competition for management seats is set to go up once again. The government has once again decided to place only 25 per cent of seats under Category B. In effect, the government rolled back its earlier decision of increasing the management seats up to 35 per cent by making a 10 per cent cut in convener seats.

And these 25 per cent seats will cost even dearer: the tuition fee for Category B has been raised from Rs 9 lakh to Rs 11 lakh per annum.

While the number of seats in NRI quota remained untouched at 15 percent, the state government hiked the tuition fee in Category C from Rs 11 lakh to Rs 13.25 lakh per annum.
