Medical, paramedical seats lying vacant

Admission for medical and paramedical courses in Gujarat was held in four phases and yet, seats in many colleges are still empty.

This trend has left many college administrations and the state education department worried. The Joint Admission Committee for Professional Courses (JACPC) of state education department, which conducts the admission process, held three rounds of re-shuffling between October 22 and 24 after the admission formalities were completed.

"The extra rounds of reshuffling were meant to give more deserving students a chance to follow their choice of careers and to fill up the vacant seats in all colleges. The last round of reshuffling was held for 75 empty seats of Akhandanand Ayurvedic college in Ahmedabad," said an official from JACPC.

However, the empty-seat syndrome refused to abate as 47 seats were found to have been left vacant in physiotherapy colleges and six in homeopathy colleges.The total number of seats available in various medical and paramedical colleges in the state was 6,130. Of these, 786 are still lying empty, after three rounds of reshuffling. "The largest number of empty seats is in dental colleges which are missing 172 students. All these seats will now be handed over to the respective college administrations for admissions," the official added.
