Karnataka PGET-13 notification finally out, NEET became just a joke

Finally RGUHS also announced the PGET 2013. This makes AP, TN and Karnataka and all the private/minority/linguistic Institutions out of NEET PG ( See full list here) This makes NEET PG exam pointless. As now majority of students have to appear in multiple exams. I dont get why NBE and MCI rushed into conducting NEET when there was no final consensus of all the states and Medical colleges associations. For government its merely a exam but the real victims are the medical students, who first had to appear for NEET in a untimely manner almost 2 months before the expected time of AIPPG, which needless to say ruined the whole study schedule of most of the students. And now this mess. I really hope the hearing of this matter on 15th Jan 2013 bring some relief to already upset medical students community. Visit for updates of Exam Papers and Solutions

Sting operation reveals medical seats sold for Rs1 crore

Leader of opposition in the state assembly Eknath Khadse created a furore in the lower house on Monday by presenting a CD which contained a sting operation giving proof of ‘deals’ for engineering and medical seats in private colleges run by politicians. Khadse alleged that students whose name featured in the merit list too were deprived of admission as medical seats were sold for anywhere between Rs7 lakh to Rs1 crore. He said private colleges and universities demanded Rs7 lakh to Rs10 lakh for bachelor of dental surgery (BDS) seats while the rate for a post-graduation course goes up to Rs1 crore.The BJP leader alleged that seven leading colleges and universities, including MGM, DY Patil and Terna medical colleges, are involved in a Rs300 crore ‘fixing’ racket every year. The leader of opposition said the sting operation was carried out by a parent whose child could not secure a medical seat despite being featured in the merit list. Khadse said the parent spent nearly Rs 1 lakh to exp

TOI busted MBBS/PG seats fixing racket

How to get a merit medical seat without giving an exam MUMBAI: It started with a Pune-based 'counselling class' repeatedly calling a Mumbai student and promising to secure an MBBS seat for her in MGM College, Kamothe, for a certain fee. The tout had got the number from her examination form. The student called TOI and tipped us off. Two reporters, one posing as a student, the other as her brother, decided to investigate. The calls from Pune were made by a Raj Tapaswi who ran Education Solutions. Initially, he offered career counselling, but after a few calls he revealed his real intent—a seat in the MGM Medical College in Navi Mumbai if we were ready to pay. On Wednesday, we went to a three-star hotel in Sanpada. Tapaswi, a pot-bellied 30-something who had booked several rooms, was already there talking to another parent. He told us what we would have to do: pay Rs 16.75 lakh to the college and Rs 25,000 to him as a service charge. The payment would be in cash with no recei

Honorable Supreme Court's Interim Order on NEET PG upsets thousands of medicos

On 13th Dec 2012 Supreme Court gave its interim order on NEET PG (The case between MCI and Private Medical Colleges) allowing the States and Private Colleges to conduct their separate entrance exam for filling up the PG seats, on the condition that the result cannot be declared till the final decision on 15th Jan 2012. As soon as the orders are passed, all the private medical colleges announced the notification of PG entrance exams, this order made thousands of medical students who appeared for NEET PG upset. In our views the apprehension of students is totally justifiable. For the last few years, every year there has been debate over conducting a Single Entrance Exams for the admission of PG seats, but due to one or the other reasons, conflicts between states and private colleges not wanting to participate, the final decision was getting postponed. It has been a traumatizing last few months for medical students. Finally in September 2012 SC passed the decision and allowed

Foreign Medical degree is proving costly for Indian Students: Only 21% passed FMGE

NEW DELHI: The obsession of earning a foreign medical degree is proving costly for Indian students. Thousands of newly-anointed Indian doctors, who completed their medical degrees abroad, are failing en masse for the past four years in clearing the mandatory screening test that allows them to practice in India. Only 21% (around one in five) students who received foreign medical degrees and appeared in the screening test qualified this year. In 2011 and 2010, only 26% medical students qualified, while the corresponding figure was only 16.2% in 2009. Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Friday that the test has been prescribed to ensure that "citizens of India who obtain medical qualifications from universities or medical institutions outside India have acquired adequacy of knowledge and skills as per MCI (Medical Council of India) norms and to ensure that such students have secured proper standard of medical education in foreign countries." Data released on Friday s
