So, the students were in a difficult situation to monitor the huge inflow of applications from various medical colleges and keep track of them. This article is an attempt to list private medical colleges inviting MBBS/ BDS applications for 2016-17 and provide some relevant information.

Number of Medical Seats in Tamil Nadu

We noted in our previous article, Total number of medical seats in India, that Tamil Nadu has the third highest number of medical seats in India.

Number of Government Medical Colleges in Tamil NaduWe also noted that Tamil Nadu has 23 government medical colleges, the most in India. Though Medical Council of India (MCI) shows 23 government medical colleges in its list, Tamil Nadu shows only 21 government medical colleges. Why is there a discrepancy between MCI and Tamil Nadu state records?

Two medical colleges, IRT Perundurai Medical College and ESIC Medical College, Chennai are considered as government medical colleges by MCI. However, Tamil Nadu state government does not treat them as government medical colleges. So, these two colleges do not contribute to the 15% All India Quota.

Private medical colleges are affordable?

Private medical colleges are affordable? Are they within the reach of common man? Can a student from poor/ middle income family achieve his dream of pursuing medical education through a private medical college? Or, is it still in the hands of only the super rich people? Has the introduction of NEET this year changed the playing field?

The current topic of discussion in the country is "One Nation, One Tax"; the GST. Last month, it was "One Nation, One Exam". Yes, I am referring to the recent Supreme Court verdict on NEET examination and the NEET Ordinance by the Central Government. This has turned the attention of many students towards private medical colleges.

Private medical colleges are within the reach of common man?The most expensive private medical colleges may now be within the reach of common man, or at least qualified candidates who could afford the high fee structure of the private colleges. While many of us are assuming that NEET ranks will be used by priv…
