The Medical Selection Committee has notified the admission process for management category MBBS seats in IRT Perundurai Medical College and Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore.

The tentative dates for counselling are Monday and Tuesday. The committee is awaiting the release of results for the second round of counselling by the Director-General for Health Services, which has been held over following a Bombay High Court order.

As per its notification, counselling for candidates in the management quota merit list and those who got sponsorship from CMC Vellore’s network associated churches or Christian organisation (including institutional quota) will be held at 2 p.m. on July 31. Candidates must bring proof of sponsorship issued by the church, and baptism/confirmation/church membership/minority certificates.

On Monday, the first session at 9 a.m. would be allotted to counselling for ward of Indian Road Transport. Counselling for 15 seats – open category and SC/ST – of CMC Vellore would be held on the same day.

A selection committee official said of the 100 seats at CMC, 74 seats are reserved for Church-sponsored candidates for which counselling would be held on the basis of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) ranks. Another 10 seats would be set aside under institutional quota for children of CMC staff.

He said of the remaining 16 seats, 12 were in the open category and three were reserved for SC/ST candidates. One seat was for Central government-nominated candidate.

“Being a Christian minority institution, there are certain conditions for admitting students. In the past, the institution was following its own selection method for admitting students. With NEET, the State authority should conduct counselling for admissions based on NEET ranks. So this year, CMC is participating in the State’s single-window counselling process,” he said.

He added that the admissions would be conducted based on the NEET rank of candidates, who had earlier applied for counselling to the Selection Committee.

Last year, CMC had halted admissions to MBBS course and had admitted only one candidate nominated by the Central government.

According to an CMC official, “There would be a separate counselling for Church-sponsored candidates on the afternoon of July 31. The admissions would be done on the basis of the rank obtained by the Church-sponsored candidates,” he added.
