State Govt. to enhance its share of institutional quota seats by 20%

July 18, 2017

Bengaluru: The State Government has decided to enhance its share of institutional quota seats from 30% to 50% an increase by 20%.

The decision in this regard was taken after students from the State demanded that the quota be increased for their benefit, said Medical Education Minister Dr. Sharan Prakash Patil.

He said that if there was no adequate demand for the 50% of institutional quota seats, the seats would be later allotted to students from other States. The reservation has been introduced after the introduction of NEET, which opened up seats in private colleges to students across the country.

Karnataka has the maximum medical colleges in the country and over 59,000 candidates had applied for medical and dental seats in Karnataka. However, a large number of students from other States who have applied for medical seats in Karnataka are likely to be disappointed as this decision was made “late.”
