Understanding the Seat Allocation

SMSIMSR has meticulously designed a strategic seat allocation plan for the academic year 2023-24. This allocation caters to various seat categories, ensuring a diverse and inclusive intake of aspiring medical students:

Government Quota Seats (40%): Out of the total available seats, 40% (20 seats) have been earmarked for government quota. Remarkably, these seats are offered without any tuition fees, and candidates who secure these seats are also provided free hostel accommodation, further alleviating the financial burden associated with medical education.

Private (Payment) Seats (40%): Another significant chunk of seats, constituting 40% (20 seats), falls under the private or payment category. Despite the nomenclature, these seats are offered without any tuition fees. SMSIMSR’s commitment to accessible education is evident here as well, as candidates opting for these seats are exempt from paying any form of tuition fees.

NRI Quota Seats (15%): Recognizing the global reach of medical education, SMSIMSR has allocated 15% (7 seats) of the total seats for NRI quota candidates. These candidates, while contributing to the diversity of the student body, are required to pay a tuition fee of ₹40 lakhs per year.

Management Quota Seats (5%): A smaller proportion of seats, 5% (3 seats), falls under the management quota. Like the NRI quota, candidates in this category are also required to pay a tuition fee of ₹40 lakhs per year.
