The Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) Friday said children of insured persons with lower wages will be given reservation in its medical colleges and will get admissions in MBBS courses at a subsidised fee. For the academic year 2016-17, a total of 700 seats were offered in all the ESIC/ESI Medical Colleges across India.
“In one of the historic decisions, an Insured Persons Quota (erstwhile ESIC Management Quota) was carved out with provision of reservation for admission to MBBS seats in ESIC Medical Colleges for wards of Insured Persons,” ESIC said.
Wards of such insured persons having wages up to Rs 15,000 a month are getting preferential admission in the ESIC Medical College and Hospital and are benefiting in terms of quality medical education, it added.
The available seats of ‘Insured Persons Quota’ are pooled on all-India basis and allotted, amongst eligible wards of insured persons, it explained.
The quota seats are being filled on merit cum preference basis through a centralised counselling based on result of All India Entrance Test — NEET (except ESIC Medical College, Sanathnagar, Telangana), ESIC said.
