The state government has decided to admit students, who are not NEET-qualified for Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) courses in the state. The government on Tuesday said it would inform the Centre about the same through proper communication.
The move comes after Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) said students, who were not qualified for NEET, could get admitted in these courses, following a High Court directive regarding the same.
According to KEA, the government quota seats (1,577 seats) have already been filled and of the 894 private quota seats in private colleges, only 70 seats have been filled. The High Court said that admissions to AYUSH colleges in the state should be completed by October 31.
Earlier this year, a government order, issued by the Department of Health and Family Welfare, had said only candidates with NEET can be admitted to AYUSH, but after the court order, the department has decided to tweak the process.
College managements, which moved the court, said there were no sufficient number of NEET qualified candidates and also there was an initial confusion regarding the qualifying exam for AYUSH. A senior KEA official said, “We always give first preference for candidates who are eligible under NEET and only if there are any seats which are vacant then seats will be allotted to candidates who did not qualify for NEET.”
“If the seats still remain vacant, then those seats will be allotted to students who did not appear for NEET but have academic eligibility to participate in the counselling,” added the official.
