Andhra Pradesh has a different scenario all together; the State along with Jammu and Kashmir has an exemption to isolate itself from central pool of medical seats. Which means that whether AP joins NEET or not still the medical seats of Andhra Pradesh will not be allotted to non Andhra Pradesh students. Approximately 13000 seats which includes both MBBS and Dental courses are away from the central pool.
On similar grounds AP is planning to draft a plan which would satisfy both MCI & regional medium students. AP government is willing to encourage even EAMCET to protect interest of it’s state students.(via) If the qualified number students in NEET are not sufficient to fill seats the state will consider EAMCET to allot medical seats. Consider an option that many students qualify in NEET; you can’t ignore the reservations. Qualified students should fall into their allocated quota of seats the state believes such thing would help BC, SC and ST students; EAMCET has a role to play even if sufficient number of students qualify in NEET UG.
The state also believes that they need not seek any permission or approvals from MCI as this state has got a special advantage following the presidential order.
There are 13 government funded medical colleges and 21 private medical colleges in the state and this year approximately 40,000 aspiring medicos are believed to take EAMCET in Telugu medium (state’s regional language). AP has a political story attached to it; the state is under constant agitation with protests and bandh, which MCI might ignore but not a reason that can be ignored by the state’s higher education officials. Adding to the political drama that already exists in the state; NEET would create chaos among the students.
AP boasts with medical colleges such as Osmania Medical College, Andhra Medical College, Kurnool Medical College and Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences to name a few.
Saying we want NEET and also EAMCET Andhra Pradesh is playing safe they neither disappoint AP students nor the MCI; it almost looks like MCI has no role to play in Andhra Pradesh as this state is isolated any way. What do you think? Leave your thoughts!
