    Telangana Government has announced another good news for students. After the formation of the state in June 2014, the Competitive Authority for the medical colleges established 100% reservation for Telangana students in the 100 seats under the convener quota. This decision was made in accordance with the health department’s announcement of the admission rules for Telangana State Medical Colleges. This decision was made possible by the implementation of the State Reorganization Act and Article 371-D, which allows reservation for admission rules. Earlier, local students in the convener quota had only 85% reservation, while the remaining 15% was allotted to non-reserved category students, including students from Andhra Pradesh.

    With this recent decision, Telangana students now have access to 520 medical seats. Among the new medical colleges, 15% of the seats are allocated to the All India Quota. In addition to Telangana students, students from Andhra Pradesh are also eligible to apply. The Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has also initiated the establishment of a medical college in his district, which will contribute to providing specialized services to the people of Telangana and offering medical education to Telangana students. Before the formation of Telangana state, there were 20 medical colleges in the state, with a total of 2,850 MBBS seats. Among these seats, 1,895 seats are under the convener quota.

    Currently, out of the total seats available, 15% are reserved for non-reserved category students, which means 280 seats are open for competition. Telangana students will have opportunities along with Andhra Pradesh students. The Telangana government has ensured that these seats are only applicable to the existing 20 medical colleges. If the old system is retained, then 15% of the reserved quota will be applicable to all medical colleges. Telangana students will have to compete for the remaining seats. The state now has a total of 56 seats, which means an additional 36 new medical colleges have been established, totaling 8,340 seats. The government has limited the reservation only to the old 20 medical colleges.
