UGC TELLS DEEMED VARSITIES TO GO BY NEET
UGC TELLS DEEMED VARSITIES TO GO BY NEET.
Admission to all deemed medical universities have to be made through the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test [NEET], the University Grants Commission [UGC] has said in a notification issued on September 15.
UGC states that all institutions that are deemed-to-be universities are governed by the UGC Regulations, 2016. Quoting Clause 6.3 of the regulation which mandates how the admission of students to an institution deemed to be a university, public or private, should be made, UGC says appropriate statutory authority for medical colleges/institutes is the Medical Council of India. The MCI clearly mandates that admissions to deemed universities have to be made through NEET.
It is prescribed that all such deemed to be universities shall be part of common counselling for admission in medical courses organised either by State Government/Central Government or through its agencies based on the marks obtained in NEET.
lf for any reason common counselling is not being held by the state government or if the deemed universities are not covered in the State Government’s common counselling, the institutes should put up a transparent system of admission under which no student is denied or deprived of applying for admission there, says the notification.
The notification also prescribes that the admission should be done purely on inter-se-merit amongst the applicants based on marks obtained in NEET.
UGC has instructed that the admissions of MBBS/BDS courses are subject to these stipulations. It has also directed the institutes to submit the compliance in respect of the same after the admissions are closed as per norms.
