Medical aspirants in TN to get more than 1,739 MBBS and BDS seats

Tamil Nadu medical students will have access to a considerable number of government quota seats in self-financing institutes. Ma Subramanian, the State Health Minister, has stated that there will be 1,739 MBBS and 1,410 BDS seats available for government quota admission. In addition, three new institutes, two private medical colleges and one university, will add 450 seats to the seat matrix. ESIC Medical College in KK Nagar will also provide 50 MBBS seats to the pool. In 2023, however, there will be no new medical colleges or increased MBBS seats in government medical colleges.

Tamil Nadu Government and Private Medical Colleges

According to data supplied by Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Tamil Nadu has 72 medical institutions with a combined intake capacity of 11,225 MBBS seats. Among these, 38 government medical institutions offer 5,225 MBBS seats across the country, while 34 private medical institutes give 6,000 MBBS seats.

Seat Allocation and Quota Distribution

Ma Subramanian, Tamil Nadu’s Health Minister, recently met with administrators from 19 self-financing medical colleges and 20 self-financing dentistry colleges to explore seat sharing. An informal agreement was struck, which stated that 

  • 50% of the seats in minority institutes would stay accessible as government quota seats, 
  • Non-minority institutes would allocate 65% of their seats similarly. There are seven minority institutes in Tamil Nadu. 
  • 15% of the seats will be reserved for non-resident Indians (NRIs), with the remainder designated as management quota seats for general admission.

Ensure an Easy Admissions Process

“We have asked the colleges to share seats as per the agreement, and they have agreed,” said the Health Minister. However, the colleges have asked the government to guarantee that the admissions process runs smoothly and on time. Students prefer government quota seats since they have lower tuition rates than management and NRI quotas. The government pays the tuition fees for kids attending government schools under the 7.5% quota. Students admitted through the government quota pay between Rs 4.35 lakh to Rs 4.50 lakh per year, while those admitted through the management quota pay Rs 13.5 lakh and NRI quota students pay Rs 24.5 lakh.

Giving Up Postgraduate Seats

In addition to undergraduate seats, the State has requested that 18 private medical colleges and 16 private dentistry institutes cede 407 postgraduate medical and 139 postgraduate dental seats for government quota admission. This initiative intends to increase chances for prospective doctors and dentists to further their education in Tamil Nadu.


Tamil Nadu medical students can rejoice at the news of additional government quota seats in self-financing institutes. Students will have more access to quality medical education with an additional 1,739 MBBS and 1,410 BDS seats in the government quota. The seat-sharing agreement reached by the government and colleges ensures that a set amount of seats would be awarded to various categories, such as government quota, minority institutes, and management quota. The state’s emphasis on boosting government quota seats strives to provide students from diverse backgrounds with affordable education options. The surrender of postgraduate seats expands the chances for aspiring medical professionals. With these advancements, Tamil Nadu remains an important medical education hub in India.
