India wants super specialists

India wants super specialists.

India holds competitive test to decide merit. Admissions are given on merit. So far so good.

But Health ministry has another fatwa: there are cutoff marks below which admissions are denied.

Result: hundreds of admissions are denied.

Result: Hundreds of seats are kept vacant due to cut-off marks.

Result: precious seats are wasted every year.

Similar situation in UG and PG medical seats.

Fact- seats are vacant because fee is high; not because cut off is high. Cut off is very much at where it should be and does its job perfectly!
