(TibetanReview.net, Jun19, 2018) – The Education Department of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) at Dharamshala has announced Jun 18 that the government of Himachal Pradesh had decided to reserve one more MBBS seat in medical colleges in the state for Tibetan students, taking the total to five. Seats in medical colleges in India are highly competitive and Tibetans often face the additional problem of being questioned about their citizenship when seeking the admission through open competition.

Enrolment for the new seat will begin this year.

The state government has already been providing four MBBS reserved seats for Tibetan students beginning from last year, said the CTA Jun 18.

It said the five reserved seats have been allotted at five different medical colleges in the state, namely Indra Gandhi Medical College, Shimla; Dr Rajendra Prasad Govt. Medical College, Tanda; Dr Yashwant Singh Parmar Govt Medical College, Nahan; Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Govt Medical College, Chamba; and Dr Radha Krishna Govt Medical College, Hamirpur.

The provision of the additional medical college seat followed a meeting the state’s health minister Mr Vipin Singh Parmar had with the Dalai Lama at Dharamshala on May 30 and, before that, with the CTA’s education minister Dr Pema Yangchen on May 19.
