Chief Minister V Narayanasamy on Tuesday categorically stated that the students of Puducherry will get their MBBS quota in Jipmer this year too as in the past. Some miscreants are spreading rumors to confuse the people that the Puducherry quota will not be there this year as the National Medical Commission will be conducting the counseling and admission.
He said as per the Jipmer Act, 20 seats have to be given as local quota from 75 seats and as such Puducherry will get 40 seats in Jipmer Puducherry and 15 seats in Karaikal campus.
Puducherry and Karaikal will get 55 seats this year also, he said, adding that he had talked to Jipmer Director and Union Health Secretary over phone and they also confirmed this.
