As per the latest media report by the Times of India, recently in order to discuss seat sharing, the Tamil Nadu Health Minister Ma Subramanian met with the administrators of 19 self-financing medical colleges and 20 self-financing dental colleges. According to the informal agreement made between the parties, 50% seats in the minority institutes will remain available for the students as government quota seats, while the non-minority institutes will share 65% of their seats. Tamil Nadu has seven minority institutes.

Further, 15% of the seats will be reserved for non-resident Indians and the remaining seats will be available for the students as management quota seats. The Minister said, “We have asked the colleges to share seats as per the agreement and they have agreed.” Meanwhile, the colleges have asked the government to make sure that the admission process does not get delayed.

Commenting on the matter, officials informed the daily, “The government is keen on getting more government quota seats because fees paid here are less compared to the management and NRI quota. Fee for students from government schools allotted under the 7.5% quota is paid by the government.”

While the students getting admitted to the government quota seats have to pay around Rs 4.35 lakh to Rs 4.50 lakh per year as tuition fees, the management quota students pay Rs 13.5 lakh and the NRI quota students need to pay Rs 24.5 lakh for the same.

Besides, the State has also asked 18 private medical colleges and 16 private dental colleges to surrender 407 postgraduate medical and 139 postgraduate dental seats for admission through the government quota.
