Chhattisgarh government ensures admission of NEET Students from Remote Areas into Private Medical Colleges

Raipur: Today, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel announced that the government will ensure admission of NEET-qualified students from remote areas of the state, as most of those students failed to register for the counseling into private medical colleges across the districts due to poor network services.

The government, ensuring paid seats for the students in various private institutions of Chhattisgarh, also issued directions forbearing the educational expenses on behalf of the students.

According to the CM, the future of the children should not be compromised. The direction was issued by the CM after he came to know about 27 students of the remote district Dantewada, who could not register for the first round of counseling because of poor network, despite qualifying NEET.

As per an official release – “At first, the district administration helped them with their registration before the second counseling at the national level, but these students couldn’t get selected. After the first counseling, two students, Kumari Padma Made and Piyusha Bek, were found eligible for admission in MBBS. On the chief minister’s instructions, the Dantewada collector is taking action to ensure admission of these students in private colleges.”

Baghel declared, if any other student is found to have qualified for admission with the required cut-off, he/she would be given admission in private colleges, with the state government bearing the educational expenses.
