Tamil Nadu to continue 69% quota in medical college admissions

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K.Palaniswami on Tuesday said the government will continue with the existing 69%reservation (50% for Backward Classes and 19 percent for Scheduled Castes) in medical college admissions.
The Medical Council of India (MCI) has offered a 25% increase in the number of medical seats for states that adopt the 10% quota for economically weaker sections (EWS). It had asked the states to reply to the offer before June 28.
Speaking in the Assembly on the issue, Palaniswami said a decision will be taken after discussions with political parties. He asserted that his government will not take a unilateral decision.
Palaniswami said state Health Minister C.Vijayabhaskar's had only informed the Assembly about the Centre communication in the matter and did not mean the state government was supporting or opposing it.
According to Palaniswami, the Centre had said it was giving a certain number of seats to the states under various heads.
