In Government Medical College, Kollam, 15% seats are reserved for All – India quota and 50% for state quota. The centre allots 35% seats here for the wards of insured persons under the Employees' State Insurance (ESI) scheme.
Those who are seeking admissions under the minority and Non-Resident Indian (NRI) quota at the management colleges should submit their options now.
Those residing outside Kerala would be considered for the NRI quota only if they aren’t Keralites.
Candidates who get allotted to the MBBS seats in the private management colleges should pay a deposit of Rs 3 lakh in the name of the entrance exam commissioner. Meanwhile, those who seek admission in the NRI quota should pay Rs 5 lakh.
The rest of the amount could be paid at the college during the time of admission. The deposit amount for the BDS courses at management colleges is Rs 1 lakh. However, candidates who get allotted to government medical and dental colleges should pay the entire amount in the name of the entrance exam commissioner.
Candidates of scheduled categories, Other Eligible Communities and those who stay at Sree Chithra/Juvenile and Nirbhaya homes need to pay only Rs 1,000 as token. However, these candidates wouldn’t get this relaxation if they are allotted seats in the minority/NRI quota in the management colleges. In that case, they too have to pay Rs 3 lakh and Rs 5 lakh respectively.
