Chennai: Two Government Orders were issued on Monday providing 50 per cent reservation for in-service candidates in the admission for post graduate super speciality (DM/MCh) medical courses in government colleges and post graduate courses (MD, MS and MDS) within the state quota for the academic year 2020-21.  

Accordingly, 50 per cent of the DM / MCh. seats in Government Medical Colleges have been allocated to in-service candidates of Tamil Nadu and the remaining 50% seats to the Government of India.

 

The seats of the in-service candidates of the State would be filled up based on the marks obtained in the NEET-SS and the Director of Medical Education would obtain a bond from the candidates that they would serve the Government till their retirement.

For the MD, MS and MDS admissions, the existing method of allotting 50 per cent of seats to the Centre would continue and of the 50 per cent seats meant for the state, half of them would be exclusively earmarked for in-service candidates working in government health institutions in the State. The seats would be filled up on the basis of marks obtained in the NEET-PG examination.

 

This practice of providing reservation for in-service doctors had been in vogue for a long time in the State. After the introduction of NEET, there was an ambiguity in continuing it, which was cleared by the courts recently.
