Article 371 (D)
Article 371 (D) was incorporated as the 32nd Amendment of the Constitution in 1974. It safeguards the rights of local people in employment and education. The article was created after agitation in the state of Andhra Pradesh, which now applies to both AP & Telangana.
What does it mean to Andhra Pradesh & Telangana?
All the seats in government colleges like Osmania, Gandhi or Kakatiya (Telangana) and Andhra, Guntur or Kurnool medical colleges are only allocated to students in AP & Telangana under convener quota. That also means that AP & Telangana students are not eligible for the 15% convener quota in the rest of the country.
What if a student wants to apply in other states?
The student must submit online Self Declaration which will be generated and printed automatically along with confirmation page for the record and to present during counseling.
How about seats in Private Medical/Dental Colleges?
Telugu students can seek admission in any leading private colleges in the country including both states under the management quota which is 50 per cent inclusive of the NRI category. Candidates can appear in NEET (UG) for admission to Private Medical/Dental Colleges or any Deemed University and Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC), Pune too subject to the fulfillment of eligibility conditions.
