Why 100% reservation for Army Wards in Army college of Medical Sciences, Asks Satyendra Jain

New Delhi, May 27 : Delhi Health minister Satyendra Jain has sought a detailed report on the move by the previous Sheila Dikshit government that allowed 100 per cent reservation for children of Army personnel, serving as well as retired, in Army College of Medical Sciences (ACMS). “The Health minister has asked the officials of his department to put before him the facts and sought a detailed report that on what basis the legislation was passed that allowed ACMS to reserve 100 per cent seats for the wards of the serving and retired Army personnel,” said a senior Delhi government official.

The action has been taken by the government after a representation by the Delhi Medical Association (DMA), which has filed a petition in High Court against the college management regarding the matter. According to the official, the government will review the cabinet’s decision to ensure that civilian students too get admitted to the college. “The cabinet decision which was taken during previous dispensation will now be reviewed,” said the official.

ACMS is a private institution which has 100 MBBS seats and was established in 2008. It was managed by the Army Welfare Education Society. It was allotted 25 acres of land by Ministry of Defence. The college management had claimed that it would only admit children of the serving and retired Indian Army personnel. In 2013, the then Dikshit-led Congress government brought in a legislation, thereby exempting ACMS from following the normal university rules that did not allow 100 per cent reservation for any category.
