Continuing on the Tamilnadu Medical data story, here is the situation in Post Graduate Medical in various colleges in TN. For sake of convenience I have only analyzed colleges with greater than 10 PG positions including surgical and super specialty.
- Stanley, Kilpauk, Coimbatore have ZERO students from open category
- There are only EIGHT PG doctors from general category that will graduate in this batch of nearly 300.
- As quotas are applied at successive stages – they have a cumulative effect.
- Unless a judicial doctrine of scrutiny is evolved, this will continue. Remember that any change today – will impact doctors only in 2023 to 2025.

Continuing our data series on Tamilnadu medical admissions which you wont find in any main stream media. This time we will look at the MBBS admissions for 2015-16 and see how it compares with our old analysis of 2013-14.
Results based on provisional MBBS Merit List available at http://www.tnhealth.org/ (click on the scrolling link). I have also posted the raw PDF Provisional Rank List here (mbbs2015-16) because the raw data usually may be removed in a few days after counseling.
In 2015-16, Tamilnadu has 2655 medical seats this year including the ones surrendered by private colleges. Out of this 15% ie 398 seats are filled in via AIPMT (which was cancelled after a paper leak).
- It appears that over 95.4% of the population of TN is covered in reserved categories. This is supported by the fact that only 4.7% of those who applied for MBBS are from General Category (so called Forward Castes). Supported by fact that typically becoming doctors is something that ‘forward castes’ ought to be interested in.
- The castes classified as OBC are showing absolutely no evidence of disability. 13 of 17 tied at 100% are BC.
- There is an urgent necessity to revise the OBC Caste List due to the fact that 72.1% of the open category seats are taken by candidates belonging to castes currently classified as OBC in Tamilnadu.
- Only 53 of 2257 doctors will be from the general category in 2020.
- Only 53 of 2257 who apply for 100-odd open category PG seats in 2020 will be from general category. Multi level quotas are an area of interest for me currently as I consider them unconstitutional (to the extent we even have a constitution).
