A.P. Private Medical and Dental Colleges Managements Association has reported ‘ among others’ that over the years, the demand for Medical and Dental seats from NRI / foreign students has been steadily increasing. These students are getting admitted based on their inter se merit among NRI candidates. However, the MCI has been treating them on par with Indian students as Andhra Pradesh does not have a sub-set of NRI category students in their rules and demanding rank structuring them in the merit list along with Indian students. He has also stated that across the country 15% of total admission capacity in each of the medical and dental courses is set aside for non-resident Indians / NRI sponsored candidates / Foreign Nationals by almost all medical and dental institutions. The Apex Court in its judgments in W.P. of TMA PAI Foundation and Others Vs. State of Karnataka and Others (2002), in Modern Dental College & Research Centre Vs. State of M.P. (2012) and Inamdar Vs. State of Maharashtra (AIR 2005 SC 3226) fixed NRI quota at fifteen percent of the available admissions in each unaided non-minority medical and dental colleges. They ruled that it shall be open to the Management to admit NRI students and Foreign students up to the aforesaid specified percentages; it shall be open to them to admit students on their own, in the order of merit, within the said quota.
In regard to the pronouncements of Apex Court, to be in consonance with other Professional institutions across the country with regard to admission process to private Unaided Medical and Dental Colleges, the A.P. Private Medical and Dental Colleges Managements Association has proposed that 15% of the total admission capacity of an institution be set aside for non-resident Indians / NRI candidates / Foreign Nationals.
The Government have examined the proposal / request of the AP Private Medical and Dental Colleges Managements Association to set apart 15% quota for children/wards of NRIs in UG admissions for the private Medical colleges in the light of Apex Court’s Judgment on NRI quota in Inamdar Vs. State of Maharashtra.
Now, after having several rounds of discussions with the representatives of APPMDCMA on the issue of providing NRI quota and other issues like introduction of ‘on line’ admission process for Management quota seats in Private Unaided Non-Minority Medical Colleges and also continuance of 10+2 pattern for Management quota admissions, a consensus has been arrived at on the above referred issues, between the APPMDCMA and the Government.
The Registrar, Dr.NTR University of Health Sciences who was consulted in the matter, has stated in the letter 8th read above that the subject of reservation to NRIs in Private Medical / Dental Colleges has been examined and he has cited the judgements of Hon’ble Apex court in TMA Pai Vs State of Karnataka and PA Inamdar Vs State of Maharashtra and stated that as per the above judgments of the Supreme Court of India, NRI quota is permitted in Private Medical and Dental Colleges for bonafide NRI children / Wards upto a maximum of 15%. He has requested the Government to take appropriate decision in this regard.
The Government after careful examination of the matter has decided to introduce NRI quota in Medical and Dental Courses and set apart 15% of the sanctioned intake from the Management quota in Private Unaided Non-Minority Medical and Dental Colleges to the bonafide NRI’s their children / wards only. It has also been decided to introduce ‘on line’ admission process for grant of admissions into Undergraduate (Medical and Dental) courses under the Management quota seats in Private Unaided Non-Minority Medical and Dental Colleges, and to retain the existing pattern of filling up of Management quota seats by virtue of merit based on the marks obtained in Biology, Physics and Chemistry subjects in (10+2) courses i.e., Intermediate or its equivalent examination.
The Government after careful examination have decided to amend the Andhra Pradesh Un-aided Non-Minority Professional Institutions (Regulations of Admissions into Under Graduate Medical and Dental Professional Courses) Rules, th 2007 issued in G.O.Ms.No. 136, HM&FW.(E1) Dept., dated 30 as amended subsequently.
