Gujarat Facing legal Issues in PG Admissions: Students want admissions based on NEET Scores

Gujarat Facing legal Issues in PG Admissions: Students want admissions based on NEET Scores



Ahmedabad: As many as 99 medical students filed a petition in the Gujarat high court on Wednesday regarding the pattern of admission in the postgraduate course to medical colleges affiliated to various universities in the state. This comes close on the heels of the petition filed by the students of MS and Bhavnagar universities.
The students mainly demanded preference during admission based on scores obtained by them in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Neet) examination conducted by the Medical Council of India (MCI).
“After hearing our petition, Justice Paresh Upadhyay issued notices to the state government and Gujarat University (GU) while fixing June 12 as the next date of hearing,” said senior counsel DC Dave, who appeared with counsel Nimesh Patel on behalf of the students.
“We have demanded preference for the students of medical colleges affiliated to GU while granting admission in postgraduate courses based on the Neet scores obtained by the students,” said Dave.
“If the government decides to admit the students according to the Neet score of all medical colleges in the state, the first merit list prepared should be of GU students and after that it should give chance to students of other universities,” he added.
The Gujarat University and the state government have decided to give admission to the students on Neet score from the 2013-14 academic year. Earlier, the GU used to follow a different pattern. It had given admission in postgraduate courses by counting 50-50 per cent marks secured in the entrance and MBBS final exams.
Meanwhile, the state might decide to end dissimilarities in the admission pattern of postgraduate courses and place that on record before the Gujarat high court on Thursday.
Bhavnagar and Vadodara universities used to give admission based on MBBS score and a couple of students protested admission based on NEET. Their petition is pending.

The MCI has decided to conduct uniform Neet examination for admission to both graduation and PG courses.

Now, some students want to continue the old process of admission while others demanded preference over students of other universities in postgraduation.

Gujarat PG admissions facing legal battle

Gujarat PG admissions facing legal battle



The issue of admission in post-graduate medical courses has been trapped in a legal battle as many students have filed petitions in the Gujarat high court (HC).

A couple of students, who studied MBBS in colleges affiliated to Bhavnagar University in Bhavnagar and MS University in Vadodara, have demanded conduct of admission based on marks obtained by them in MBBS.

On the other side, a group of MBBS students of MS University have protested the petitions and sought admission based on Neet score. The HC is likely to hear the matter after June 10.

Meanwhile, the state government plans to place all medical colleges of different universities in the state under a single umbrella and admit students through a centralised admission system.

The government lawyer, on Monday, stated before the HC that the state might abolish the system of giving admission based on merit list prepared with marks obtained by students in MBBS. Instead, the state might adopt a uniform policy of giving admission through scores in Neet examination.

On this, the HC asked the government to file an affidavit on June 30 to inform the court about the decision taken by the latter over the admission issue. The government and universities have got additional time of two months to complete the admission process until July 31. Earlier, the Supreme Court had set a deadline of May 31. Hence, the HC will take up further hearing of the admission issue after June 10, when the summer vacation ends.

A group of students is against admission based on MBBS marks as hundreds of students have appeared in Neet, introduced by the Medical Council of India (MCI) this year. The lawyers of the student argued before the HC that the students had obtained high scores by appearing in the competitive exam and are eligible to get admission in PG courses.

Even the government had approved admission through Neet in various universities, including Gujarat University. But Bhavnagar and MS University are giving admission based on MBBS marks.

More than 115 petitions were filed before the Supreme Court in favour and against Neet examination. The top court will decide the issue in July.

Gujarat plans to increases bond amount for UGs and PGs

Gujarat plans to increases bond amount for UGs and PGs


Ups bond for MBBS students from Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 5lakh; levies Rs 10 lakh bond for PG medical students, who dont want to work for 3 yrs in rural areas.

State government has decided to increase the bond value for MBBS students from Rs1.5 lakh to Rs5 lakh, with the hope that this will dissuade qualified doctors in rural areas of Gujarat to move to urban pastures. It has also introduced bond of Rs10 lakh for the post-graduate (PG) medical students. MBBS and PG students, studying into the govt or grant-in-aid medical colleges at nominal fees are supposed to do their internship in the state government-run health centres. As these centres are mostly located in rural areas, 70% of MBBS students studying in government-run institutes prefer to pay up Rs1.5 lakh than go there for internship.

Talking about the move government spokesperson and state health minister Nitin Patel said, “State government was well aware of this practice by MBBS students, who would opt out of their rural internship by paying the bond amount. As a result of this malpractice, rural areas suffer from lack of qualified doctors. Therefore, in a bid to curb this practice, we have increased the bond value from Rs1.5 lakh to Rs5 lakh for three years of services in rural areas. We hope this way we can retain more MBBS students in rural areas as interns.”

He further said the govt wants to make specialized doctors available for the rural masses and thus introduced the Rs10 lakh bond for PG students studying in government medical colleges. “They will need to provide their services at the government hospitals in rural areas for 3 years. If they will opt out of it, they will need to pay the bond money,” the minister said.

Justifying that the bond amount at PG level is moderate as compared to other states of the country, Patel said, “States have their own criteria. Some provide less stipend and charge less amount as bond, some others give good stipends and keep the bond amount high. Maharashtra has Rs62,000 as tuition fee, Rs4,000 as hostel fee and a bond value is Rs50 lakh while they provide stipends of Rs29,133. Rajasthan has only Rs3.5 lakh bond, but they pay only Rs 20,000 as stipend. In Gujarat, till now, we did not have any bond at the PG level and paid them Rs28,000 as stipend,” he said. 

Modi to inaugurate ‘Knowledge Consortium’ today

Chief minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the newly-constructed building of Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat (KCG) near Physical Research Laboratory at Ahmedabad on Thursday. KCG is claimed to be the first-of-its-kind unique centre of higher studies has been set up on a 7.5-acre campus. Prior to this Modi will attend the ground breaking ceremony of its hostel building, which will be built by Shree Modh Vanik Modi Gnati Milkat Trust, Ambaji. The vice president of the trust, Dahyabhai Modi said that the hostel will be have 80 rooms with a capacity of 300 students.

NEET PG: ALL India Rank & State Rank demystified

NEET PG: ALL India Rank & State Rank demystified



There are many students who after seeing their NEET PG results are confused about their ranks in NEET PG.

So we are trying to simplify the concept here for the people to understand better.

Lets see..... First of all NEET is a eligibility test for the admission to PG courses. NEET PG provided 3 ranks to many students and 2 ranks to some. These are
  1. All India rank
  2. State 1 Rank
  3. State 2 Rank

Now lets take some examples.

  • Dr M, who is domicile of Rajasthan, and did his Graduation from Karnataka.
He will be provided with AIR, State1 Rank - Rajasthan, and State 2 Rank - Karnataka. But according to rules in Rajasthan, only State MBBS candidates are eligible so Dr. M will be eligible for the counselling of 50% AI Quota and Karnataka State Quota counselling. He will not be listed in the final list prepared for Rajasthan state quota counselling.

  • Dr N, who is a domicile of Karnataka and did MBBS from Rajasthan
He will be provided with AIR, State1 Rank - Karnataka, and State 2 Rank - Rajasthan. According to rules in Rajasthan, only State MBBS candidates are eligible so Dr. N will be eligible for Rajasthan state quota counselling. In Karnataka, both state MBBS and domicile candidates are eligible so Dr N is also eligible for the counselling of Karnataka state quota.

  • Dr T, who is a domicile of Haryana and did his MBBS from Haryana
He will be given only 2 ranks. AIR and state 1 rank. He will be eligible for both counselings.

Now few points to note:

  1. The AIR is the final rank. (If AP and JnK will not be included then it may change as these students will be excluded)
  2. State ranks are just indicative and does not confirm your eligibility for that seat.
  3. Final state rank list will be prepared by respective states according to their own eligibility criteria. So state rank is liable to change.
  4. About conselling, there is no info available till now whether there will be combined counseling for All India and States or separate counsellings. As far as we predict, state counselling will be separate due to differnce in rules of eligibility and reservation criteria in different states.
  5. For those states which have conducted separate entrance test, the state rank for those states shown in Rank letter is void and will not be effective, for example TN, Karnataka etc.


If you have any more doubts, ask here via comments. We will try to solve the queries.

Private Colleges taking advantage of NEET fiasco, Fees skyrocketing

Private Colleges taking advantage of NEET fiasco, Fees skyrocketing

The annual PG sale is on! After the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test, Post-Graduate (NEET-PG) results were announced on Thursday, the capitation fee for admission against 300-odd management quota seats in self-financed medical colleges, was reported to be between Rs 50 lakh and Rs one crore, depending upon the branch!

It needs mention that there are 1500 PG medicalseats in Gujarat. Of these, 300 are management quota seats while 1200 are in government-run colleges where 50 per cent seats are reserved for students from the all-India quota.

With seats shrinking and demand rising, some self-financed colleges are allegedly already bargaining with students and asking for huge amounts to book a seat in advance in the best branches. While a majority of the self-financed colleges follow merit even in charging capitation fee, there are at least two colleges who allegedly feed off the desperation of students to get into a particular medical branch.

The most popular branches currently are radiology, medicine and orthopedics. The medicine branch is a favourite as it is considered the stepping stone to the lucrative super-specializations of cardiology and neurology.

Officials said that in states like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan, many colleges bend the rules and give admission in PG courses to students of little merit for a high capitation fee.

Meanwhile, in Gujarat, after paying the capitation fee, students are also required to pay the annual fee which ranges from Rs 4 lakh to Rs 8.5 lakh!

"If you father does not have deep pockets, it is difficult to make your child a doctor. He or she should be a rank-holder or rich," said a middle class parent who is struggling to find a seat for his ward!

Gujarat performed well in NEET PG : TOI

Gujarat performed well in NEET PG : TOI

AHMEDABAD: Students from Gujarat have performed exceptionally well in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission in to postgraduate medical courses. More than 30 students from the state have ranked in top 100.


Close to 4,500 students from Gujarat appeared for the 1,500 seats in the state. In the entire state maximum number of successful students are from Ahmedabad. What's more, more than 20 students of BJ Medical College have found place in top 100 list.

However, students had some anxious moments on Thursday as results were declared in the evening but the website crashed due to heavy rush and students could only came to know about their result late in the night.

Most of the toppers belong to non-doctor families. Kewal Kanabar, with all-India eleventh rank, has topped Gujarat's merit list. He is from BJ Medical College. Kewal was followed by Divesh Dadhania, whose all-India rank is 29th and Gujarat rank is 2. Ravi Shah ranked third in the state and 35th over all. All the three toppers are from middle-class families and also the first doctors in their family.

Talking to TOI, BJ Medical College dean Bharat Shah said that the reason this time the students from Gujarat, and especially from the medical college, fared well was that in the final year they made special arrangements for the students. The aspirants were trained to attempt multiple choice questions (MCQs). "We created a laboratory were students are given five sets of question paper of MCQs hence they were well prepared for the test," Shah said.

NEET PG SC case Official Interim Order

NEET PG SC case Official Interim Order

This is the highlights Interim Order Issued by CJI on NEET case on 13th May 2013.



3. On 13th December, 2012, when the matters were taken up for  consideration, we decided to post the matters for final hearing on 15th,16th and 17th January, 2013, and allowed the respective entrance examinations, which had already been notified, to be held, while the hearing progressed. Such examinations included the National Eligibility Entrance Test  (NEET) for both MBBS and Post-Graduate courses in different disciplines, as also the BDS and MDS examinations. Presuming that the hearing would be completed on the dates indicated, we had directed that the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council of India, as well as the States and Universities and other institutions, would be entitled to conduct their respective examinations for the MBBS, BDS and Post-Graduate courses, but the results of the examinations were not to be declared until further orders of the Court. Consequently, although, the examinations have been held, the results have been withheld and have not been declared, on account of the interim order passed by us. 
4. The hearing could not be concluded within 17th January, 2013, as we had hoped, on account of the enlargement of the scope of the hearing and the large number of parties who had to be heard in the matter. In fact, the matters were last heard on 30th April, 2013, and it has, therefore, not been possible to pronounce judgment before the Supreme Court closed for the  summer vacations on 10th May, 2013.
5. While the matters were being heard, we had been informed by the learned senior counsel appearing for the Christian Medical College,Vellore, and the Karnataka Pvt. Medical & Dental College, that a large number of students would be adversely affected and would stand to lose a year, if the bar on the declaration of their results was not lifted.Although, initially, we had declined to entertain such prayer, on account of the delay in completion of the hearing and the prospect of the students losing a year on account thereof, we feel that students hoping to gain admission in the MBBS as well as Post-Graduate courses on the strength of the results of the examinations, which have already been held and for which they had appeared, should not be denied such opportunity, at least for this year. We are also alive to the fact that it is the Post-Graduate students in the medical colleges, who take charge of the medical treatment of patients in the hospitals. Without fresh entrants into the Post-Graduate courses, even for a year, the hospitals are likely to be adversely affectedon account of lack of doctors to directly take care of the patients in the hospitals. 
6. Apart from the above, the students, who aspire to gain entry into the medical colleges at the MBBS and BDS and the Post-Graduate levels, have been caught in the legal tangle for no fault of theirs and are the victimsof policy decisions. In order to safeguard their interests, as also the interest of the hospitals, we consider it just and equitable to lift the bar imposed by us on 13th December, 2012, for this year's entrance examinations and, to that extent, we modify our order of 13th December,2012, and allow the results of the examinations already conducted to be declared to enable the students to take advantage of the same for the current year.

SC gives Interim Order for NEET case, States, institutes can declare results

SC gives Interim Order for NEET case, States, institutes can declare results


From IBN Live


New Delhi: The Supreme Court has directed medical colleges to declare all pending Post Graduate results, which were stayed by the December 13, 2012, order. However, this is only an interim arrangement for this year and a final judgement will be delivered by the Supreme Court in the first week of July.
The Supreme Court has also left the option of following the NEET result on the colleges. This means that the colleges who want to follow the NEET results for admissions can do the same and the colleges who want to admit students on the basis of their independent exams are free to do so. This makes NEET a voluntary admission process for colleges.
The court order comes more than a month after a CNN-IBN sting operation exposed how PG medical seats were being sold in black in clear violation of a Supreme Court order. It was the students who were caught in the line of fire. A Supreme Court order had put a stay on the admission process pending its NEET verdict leaving the fate of close to 90,000 medical aspirants hanging in the balance. The suspense had been leading to anger and frustration.
Upset with the delay in the admission process, medical students had also organised protest rallies and dharnas across the country demanding a single admission test.
The medical education standoff started with the MCI proposing a common entrance test for MBBS, Dental and PG Medical Courses. Opposing this, Private Medical and Dental Colleges moved the Supreme Court. Asking for time, the apex court had ordered the MCI to conduct NEET and also allowed all states and private colleges to conduct their entrance exams but not declare results till the court's verdict is out.

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will on Monday decide the fate of 90,000 medical aspirants after it takes a decision on National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) or the common entrance test for MBBS, Dental and PG medical courses. This comes more than a month after a CNN-IBN sting operation exposed how PG medical seats were being sold in black in clear violation of a Supreme Court order.
Meanwhile, it was the students who had been caught in the line of fire. A Supreme Court order had put a stay on the admission process pending its NEET verdict leaving the fate of close to 90,000 medical aspirants hanging in the balance. The suspense has been leading to anger and frustration.
PG aspirant Dr Ravi Shankar said, "What is the Supreme Court doing? I have been to the court and our matter never comes up for hearing. Summer vacations are about to start. What happens then?" Another PG aspirant Dr Ankita said, "I am one of the PG aspirants. I am jobless. I need an answer right now. The delay is creating mass agony."
Upset with the delay in the admission process, medical students had been organising protest rallies and dharnas across the country demanding a single admission test.
The medical education standoff started with the MCI proposing a common entrance test for MBBS, Dental and PG Medical Courses. Opposing this, Private Medical and Dental Colleges moved the Supreme Court. Asking for time, the apex court ordered the MCI to conduct NEET and also allowed all states and private colleges to conduct their entrance exams but not declare results till the court's verdict is out.
The delay in the Supreme Court verdict had been becoming a source of angst among aspiring medicos who feel the system is working hand in glove with private colleges. Will medical education get a new lease of life with NEET or will the circle of corruption continue?

A student's guide to DNB (BS) Counselling

A student's guide to DNB (BS) Counselling


DNB CET Nov 2012 Result is declared on 30th April 2013. Counseling will start from 13th May 2013. Congratulations to everyone who secured a good rank in DNB.


Counselling Helpline:

If you have any query or confusion regarding the counselling and want to discuss, we are always here to help you out in sorting out things. Ask away your queries at our social network for doctors

Register at docial by acrosspg (http://docial.acrosspg.com/register) and ask your queries in

http://docial.acrosspg.com/groups/counselling-discussions/ or
http://docial.acrosspg.com/answers




Now many questions are arising in the minds of rank holders like, whether to attend the counseling?, whether to opt for a seat?, should select standby for second counseling or not?

To help the students clearing their minds of these doubts a little bit we are writing this small guide which can help you to make a better decision. This guide is prepared after discussing with number of students who appeared in previous DNB counselings and teachers with experience in PG entrance training.

This guide is to help you only. The final decision should be yours own and should not be influenced very much by others. So read the guide, ask your teachers and seniors, or if you want you can ask your doubts here also and then make your own decision.




A. Some facts from NBE counseling Guide Book.

5.4 Candidates called for first round of counseling and fail to attend/participate shall not be eligible for participation in the subsequent round(s) of counseling.

5.5 Candidates appearing for counseling can either opt for a confirmed seat or exercise their option for participation in further round of counseling.

5.6 Candidates opting for a confirmed seat are NOT eligible to participate in subsequent round(s) of counseling irrespective of their joining/non- joining/resignation from the seat already opted for.

5.7 Candidates are advised to exercise their option for confirmed seat or next round of Counseling (vide supra) cautiously as no change in seat once allotted shall be permissible under any circumstances.

B. About DNB Pros and Cons.

Pros.

  1. At present DNB has become equivalent to MD/MS and is a good option for those who get a good seat.
  2. Pass out rate is increasing as merit based counseling is there.
  3. Job options are increasing for DNB candidates. Even govt sectors are taking DNB candidates.

Cons.

  1. Pass out rate is still poor than MD/MS.
  2. Many DNB seats are in Private hospitals which lags in academics.
  3. The examiners in practicals are not as cool as they are in case of MD/MS. MD/MS exams have a internal examiner which helps a lot.

C. Some Facts for this session.

  1. NEET result is on the way. Expected to be out by 10-12 May 2013. 
  2. NEET was conducted by same NBE Prometric Duo so the result is expected to be almost same.
  3. Many top ranker for DNB will definitely get good ranks in NEET and will go for NEET rather than DNB so many initial seats will go vacant.

D. Now about the counselling. 

Lets divide it into rank wise.

1. Rank 1 - 500.

  • These ranker will get good ranks in NEET also.
  • Whether to attend: Yes, do attend the counselling, there is no harm in that.
  • First make your preference list of Subject and city. 
  • If everything goes well you will get your NEET rank before DNB counseling so weigh your NEET rank and which seat you can get there.
  • Those who have strict preference like Radiology in Delhi, and u r not getting in 1st round, then go for second round because once opted seat cannot be changed and there are good chance the seat will be available in 2nd round.
  • If you are getting ur desired seat and u r not sure of ur NEET rank its better to opt the seat. If u get ur seat in NEET u can surrender DNB seat safely.
  • If ur NEET rank is not very good and u r not getting say for example Radio in Delhi but u r getting DNB radio in Delhi then we advice to still go for MD radio in some other city over DNB radio. If u r not getting MD radio at all then its ur call, either go for ur second choice for example MD Paeds or choose DNB Radio. We still prefer MD Paeds.

2. For Ranks 500 -1500 

  • Here the decision becomes little difficult. As many of the best seats will be taken. 
  • If NEET results are in ur hand then u can judge according to the NEET rank. 
  • If u r getting the seat of ur choice then just go for it. 
  • If you are not getting the seat of ur choice and u cannot compromise then its better to take a stand by because if u leave the seat then u will be barred for 3 years. And there is a good chance u will get the seat in 2nd round. 
  • If ur NEET exam was not good and u can compromise on ur first choice than go for it. But remember u can only leave the seat if u can grab good seat in NEET. 

3. For ranks > 1500 upto 6000 

  • For these ranks, mostly the availability of seats will depend on NEET results. If the neet results will be declared early then there are chances many top rankers who also get rank in NEET may not opt for DNB . 
  • Here the decision can be based on few things like, number of years post MBBS, choice of branch available, and capacity to prepare further. 
  • If u think that u have had enough then take the best possible seat available. But if u r getting a really bad seat then its better to put hold for second round. There are chances that many good options will show up in second round after the NEET counseling. 

E. About DNB Family Medicine. 

There are many arguments about DNB FM. Some say that its good and some say that it’s a bad idea. I here present my views on FM.
Family medicine is still in its nascent phase in India. GP system is not prevalent in India which causes lack of opportunities for FM Physicians.
FM also lacks support from Indian Govt. There are hardly any posts available for FM. Although Govt has proposes posting FM PGs to PHC and CHC but that means u need to stay a major part of ur life in rural areas.

Who should consider DNB FM: Medicos who are out of other options and

  • Who are tired of preparations and want to just quit. DNB FM is better than plain MBBS. 
  • People who stay in Metros mainly Delhi. Delhi has good salaries for FM 
  • Doctors who have their own setups or arrangements of private practice. It doesn’t matter in PP. 
  • Who are ready to stay in Village/Rural area. (Gov. is opening up FM posts most probably)

After DNB CET results, students praying for a Single day Entrance Exam

After DNB CET results, students praying for a Single day Entrance Exam


NBE declared the result of DNB CET Nov 2012 session result yesterday evening. The result came as a shock for many. The ranks were not at all according to the performance says many students on different forums.

Students say that its due the unreasonable scaling used by prometric for deciding the score. Its like a lottery and the hard work of students is not evaluated in this system.

One student say - My friend got a rank of within 40 in AIIMS and PGI exam of Nov-Dec session and his CET Nov rank is above 10000. This clearly shows that the ranking system of prometric is faulty

Students now praying that SC gives a verdict in which there is a provision of single day single session exam which will not undermine the ranking system.

It appears that the Scaling system and psychometric analysis used by prometric for various exams like GMAT, CAT etc, is not successful in PG entrance exams in India. and students are definitely not liking it.

Post your experience of DNB result and your views about the scaling by replying to this post.
