Application fees for management quota admission fixed at Rs 1000 per nursing college

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: For admission to BSc nursing management seats in private nursing colleges of the state, one has to pay Rs. 1000 in each college and apply separately.

The decision was taken at the general body meeting of Private Nursing College Management Association of Kerala (PNCMAK). For the last seven years, admission to management seats was done through online application and unified allotment. One could apply to 10 colleges across the state by paying a fee of Rs 1000.

The new decision follows the proposal that the association should pay 18 per cent of the application fee as GST to the government while making unified allotment. GST is not applicable if colleges conduct admissions on their own.

The dispute over the payment of GST since 2017, when unified allotment was introduced, is in the High Court. Only fee without GST was collected from applicants. The position of the association is that they cannot pay GST anymore. The allotment had published the rank list on the basis of marks for seven years. Now each college will be listed separately and admission will be done. Association President V Saji and Secretary Ayira Shashi said that the problem is that the government is not ready to exempt GST.

50 colleges, 17000 applications

Last year, 17,000 applications were received at 50 colleges under the association. There are 2000 management seats. Since it is online, you can choose the colleges of your choice and give the option.
