He said that 150 seats for Sri Padmavati Mahila Visvavidyalayam, 150 for Nellore district, 50 seats to Tirupati and Kakinada districts were sanctioned by the MCI.
Srinivas said that medical counselling is likely to commence from August 5. With the addition of 400 seats in Andhra Pradesh, over 5,000 seats are now open for the students. As the admissions process remains same for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the students from either of the states can choose a seat in both regions. It may be noted that the MCI has allocated additional 50 seats to the Osmania Medical College, Telangana.
With these additional 50 seats, now the total number of seats has been increased from 200 to 250. However, Telangana government refused to reveal any information about seats allotment in the State.
