Kolkata: Referring to the huge number of vacant State quota seats in BHMS admission, the principals of seven state government aided Homeopathic Medical Colleges have written to the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and have sought her intervention into the matter.

The colleges have put the blame on the 'faulty policy' of the Centre and have claimed that the Central Policy fixes the cut off marks same for both MBBS and BHMS admission and due to this, around 85-90 percent of the total state quota BHMS seats remain vacant every year, adds Millennium Post.

The list of colleges that have approached the CM includes PCM Homeopathic Medical College in Kolkata, Metropolitan Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital in North 24-Parganas' Sodepur, and Bengal Homeopathic Medical College in Asansol.

This comes at a time when the CM Mamata Banerjee has recently urged the Prime Minister of India to increase the number of medical seats in West Bengal.

As per the latest media report by Millennium Post, the principals of seven medical colleges have pointed out in the letter that around 50 percent of the total BHMS seats remain reserved for the State quota and these seats are termed as "free seats". However, for the last three years, these seats are remaining vacant because of the faulty policy of the Centre.

The colleges have pointed out that the Central Government fixes the cut-off marks of the NEET exam same for both MBBS and BHMS admission.

In the letter, it has also been pointed out by the Principals that the colleges are facing financial troubles and due to this, they are unable to pay salaries to the teaching and non-teaching staff as well.

So, the colleges have requested the Chief Minister to ensure a provision in the State budget as well to help the Homeopathic medical colleges survive.
