Admission process in medical colleges of India will began once Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2017. The exam is scheduled to be held across 108 centers in the nation on May 8.
To make the admission process transparent, Medical Council of India (MCI) has recently launched a new online information system and will be implemented from the commencing session of 2017-18.
Reasons behind the launch of Online Information System
- The main reason for this to keep tabs on the illegal admissions in medical colleges once the result for the NEET 2017 is declared.
- In order to make sure that admission in all medical colleges are done according to the parameters prescribed by the MCI, MCI had sent a notice to all colleges regarding the same.
What notice said:
"In order to effectively monitor all admissions made in courses of medicine are in conformity with the requirement of regulations, an online monitoring system has been launched by the council."
The notice said that Online Information System will make sure that colleges are adhering to the admission rules laid down by the MCI and will also help in promoting transparency and accountability in medical education.
"Medical colleges/ institutions must submit their student's admission details latest by June 7 for broad specialty and September 7 for super- specialty courses beyond which the college institutions will not be allowed to enter the details," as stated in a report.
"Any violation shall lead to discharge of the concerned student from the courses and such action against the concerned medical college/ institution as is permissible in law," the notice read.
Last year most of the colleges gave admissions to the students under the management quota without considering the merit system.
