    Harish Rao, a senior leader and former minister of BRS, is urging the State government to reserve all seats under the convener quota in medical colleges for students from Telangana. This request comes as the State celebrates its 10th anniversary since formation.

    Since Telangana was established in 2014, a policy has allowed students from both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to compete for 15% of the medical seats under the convener quota. Harish Rao is concerned that if this policy continues, new medical colleges formed after 2014 will also have to allocate 15% of seats to students from outside Telangana, potentially taking away 520 medical seats from Telangana students. To address this, the previous BRS government limited the unreserved quota to the 20 medical colleges existing before Telangana’s formation.

    This amendment ensured that all seats in medical colleges established after June 2, 2014, were reserved for Telangana students, resulting in an additional 520 seats for them. With the state organization modern law becoming inoperative on June 2, Harish Rao stresses the need to reserve 100% of convener quota seats in old medical colleges for Telangana students to prevent students from Andhra Pradesh from occupying these seats.

    He notes that the number of medical colleges in Telangana has increased from 20 to 56, and the number of medical seats has risen from 2,850 to 8,340 since the state’s formation. Harish Rao also seeks clarity on local/non-local status for Telangana students pursuing medical courses other than MBBS and PG Medical to ensure they are treated fairly under the convener quota.
