After months of uncertainty surrounding medical and dental admissions to private and deemed universities, the ministry of Health & Family Welfare released a notice clarifying that admissions to private and deemed universities will be carried out through a centralized process.
The circular which was released on August 10 has brought some relief to thousands of candidates who are contending for the 3,395 seats in the private and deemed universities and were anxious of going through a separate admission procedure for each of the 10 Deemed Institutes in the state.
One of the students questioned that what was the idea behind conducting NEET if the candidates had to appear for different set of examinations for admission despite NEET.
Many Deemed Universities were planning to conduct a separate admission process since there was no mention of the Deemed Institutes in the Supreme Court verdict.

The Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) after receiving various complaints from the parents and students wrote to the Union Government demanding clarity on the issue.
The circular released by the Health Ministry stated that the decision to conduct a centralized admission procedure was taken after a discussion with the Ministry of Law to avoid any further delay in the process.
The circular further states that the counseling for Admissions should commence from August 22 and the entire procedure of admissions should get completed on or before September 30.
Rajesh Jain from Parents Association of Medical Students (PAMS) stated that admissions on the basis of NEET would take time between five to seven weeks and the state Government must conduct admissions through a centralized process in order to complete the admission process before the allotted time.
While NEET results were declared on August 17, candidates are still bewildered regarding the rules of admission as they have not been declared till date. These rules provide the students with an idea about the admission procedure, eligibility details, fee structure of Institutes, courses and Institutes participating in the Admission process.
Praveen Shingare, Director of DMER stated that the rules would be released early next week and the students will get sufficient time to understand the procedure and apply for seats as per the allotment based on their NEET scores.
