Faridkot, July 30

Keeping in view the Covid-19 outbreak, the Medical Council of India (MCI) today announced extension of the last date for admission to post-graduate (PG) medical courses (MD/MS) in all colleges from July 31 to August 31.

Second extension

This is the second time that the MCI has extended the last date for admissions. Earlier on June 12, it announced to extend the date from May 31 to July 31

The MCI's decision came after getting a nod from the Supreme Court. This is for the second time that the council has extended the date. Earlier on June 12, it announced to extend the last date for admissions from May 31 to July 31.

As government and private medical colleges were facing problems in completing the admission process by July 31, the MCI extended it with the SC's permission, said Dr RK Vats, secretary general, MCI.

As per the schedule approved by the apex court in 2016, the last date for admissions to PG medical and dental courses is May 31.

Meanwhile, in an attempt to meet the July 31 deadline, Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot, on Wednesday announced its counselling schedule for the mop-up round in a hush-hush manner. The candidates were asked to submit their applications by July 29 mid-night and preferences of college/specialty by 2 pm on July 30. The provisional merit list was to be displayed by the evening and the candidates were supposed to report at the allotted colleges by 11 am on July 31.

The MCI, in its application to the apex court, had also sought last date extension for letter of permission (LoP) for MBBS from May 31 to August 31 and for issuance of LoP for super specialty courses from May 31 to July 15.
