On Thursday, the Sindh government has decided to allocate 95 percent of the seats for the local candidates in private medical and dental colleges.
In the provincial health department’s notification, it was made mandatory for all Sindh’s private medical and dental colleges to give admissions to at least 95% of candidates who have Sindh’s domicile.
The other five percent of the seats have been reserved for other provinces’ students.
It should be mentioned here that the Sindh cabinet earlier had decided to establish the Sindh Medical Commission (SMC) and approved that students belonging to Sindh should get at least 95% seats in the province’s private medical and dental institutions.
Previously in October 2020, the provincial health department had announced setting up the Sindh Medical and Dental Council in the same month.
The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council had been dissolved and replaced by the Pakistan Medical Commission through a presidential ordinance in October last year.
