Thanks to a GO (Government Order) issued by Andhra Pradesh government recently, as many as 75 Telangana students aspiring for postgraduate medical admission are likely to lose seats. It’s a matter of great concern that affects the future of medical students from Telangana.

As per the recent G.O.MS No 101 Health, Medical & Family Welfare (C1)dated July  15, 2023,the Andhra Pradesh Government has declared that Telangana students are not eligible for 15 per cent unreserved category seats which have been increased in Andhra Pradesh after June 2nd 2014,and new colleges established there after

Conversely,the KNRUHS (Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences) under Telangana Government issued a prospectus for admission into PG medical degree and diploma courses for the academic year 2023-24 on 8thJuly 2023

However there was no mention of Andhra Pradesh students eligibility for the 15%unreserved category seats (increased seats)in existing colleges after June 2nd 2014,in our prospects this discrepancy poses a significant disadvantage to Telangana students.

For your information approximately 564 number of seats increased in clinical branches post bifurcation of the state and the number of students from the AP is almost 45% of the total registered candidates as per the merit list released by KNRUHS.

It is requested that authorities and minister look into the matter and make necessary actions to ensure fair and transparent admission processes for both Telangana and AP students.


Parents, students worried

The VC of KNRUHS said if similar G.O can be released by our government, something can be done or else they’ll continue as usual

The Minister asked his staff to follow up the matter. “The staff of Health Minister are pursuijng the matter, and we hope something positive will come,” said Syed Aziz Ahmed, a parent of a medical student aspiring for

When Junior Doctors Association represented the matter, Telangana Director of Medical Education Dr Ramesh Reddy said that no-one can change presidential order. Someone should have filed a case on AP when their G.O was released. Both the parents and JUDA are planning to meet higher ups in the government to seek justice to their students.
