In an effort to avoid confusions around National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) that happened this year, parents of several medical aspirants in Maharashtra raised concerns over the admission process in medical and dental colleges ahead of NEET 2017.
In a meeting on Saturday, about 30 parents came together, demanding decision on seats reserved under Maharashtra domicile and streamlined medical admission process next year.
The parents also sought transparent information on the number of seats available across Maharashtra and new colleges coming up along with the expected increase in number of seats.
"We also want confirmation on whether 85 per cent seats are reserved for Maharashtra domicile students in private and unaided medical colleges," said Mahendra Choudhuri, a parent from Mumbai, to The Indian Express.Parents also asked to curtail multiple reservation of seats, requesting the authorities to instill a float and freeze system similar to that in engineering colleges.
Parents will present a letter enlisting all the demands to the commissioner of CET Cell and the Directorate of Medical Education & Research (DMER), seeking clarity on their concerns, on Monday.
