In the letter 6th read above, the Registrar, Dr. NTR University of Health Sciences, Vijayawada has reported that the University completes the process of admissions into PG Medical Courses strictly in adherence with the schedule fixed by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and closes the admissions by the cut off date fixed by the MCI. The Registrar has informed that it is observed in the recent past that a number of students though they were allotted a seat in the web counseling as per the web option exercised by them, they are not joining in the allotted seat due to which the seat is left vacant. The Registrar has also reported that some times the candidates are blocking the seats and causing vacancy of seats by opting seats both in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana web counsellings and not joining in the seats allotted either in Andhra Pradesh or Telangana.
In order to avoid such blockage of seats and to enable to fill all the seats in the PG Medical courses by the final round of web counselling, the Registrar in accordance with the resolutions taken in a meeting held between the officials of both the Universities i.e, Dr.NTR UHS & KNR UHS, has suggested the measures to be taken and requested to issue orders amending the existing GOs vide reference 1st to 5th read above.
The Government after careful examination of the proposal have decided to amend the Andhra Pradesh Medical Colleges (Admission into Post Graduate Medical Courses) Rules, 1997.
Accordingly, the following notification shall be published in the Extraordinary issue of the Andhra Pradesh Gazette, dated: 26 -04-2017.
