Punjab News: The Indian Nursing Council has eased admission requirements in Punjab to address the 2,466 vacant out of 5,540 BSc nursing seats, allowing candidates who take the CET 2023 to fill them with relaxed percentile criteria.
Meanwhile, the Medical Counselling Committee is set to reveal the seat allotment results for NEET BDS and BSc Nursing round 4 on October 19, 2023, with reporting to designated colleges from October 20 to 24. Registration for the NEET UG BDS and BSc Nursing stray vacancy round 2023 is scheduled to commence on October 25, 2023.
Data of Karnataka:
In Karnataka, approximately 140 undergraduate medical seats remain unfilled, even after three rounds of counseling, alongside some vacant clinical and para-clinical seats in post-graduate courses. The reduction of the NEET-PG qualifying percentile to zero has led to increased admissions for para-clinical courses, and the Karnataka Examinations Authority is considering implementing an online complaint redressal system by 2024.
Cary Town Council seat:
Additionally, Indian-American Sarika Bansal is on the verge of winning a Cary Town Council seat in North Carolina, as she is heading for a runoff after narrowly missing an outright victory. She would be the first Indian-American to serve on the council, with Asian Americans making up 20% of Cary’s population.
Despite her campaign sign being vandalized in August, Bansal remains dedicated to community service and investment for future generations, having relocated to Cary in 2015 to pursue a career in cyber security.
