Malla Reddy Institue of Medical Sciences, chaired by Telagana Politician, Ch Malla Reddy, had landed up in trouble in June 2015, when the Central Governement after being recommended by Medial Council of India had denied renewal of permission for its 150 medical seats.
MRIMS, started in 2012-13 with a corpus of 150 seats, had been first denied permission in 2014, when MCI in its surprise inspection of the college had found that college had forged documents showing fake employments of senior residents. As Punishment under Regulation 8(3)(1) proviso (d) of the Establishment of Medical College Regulations, 1991, MCI has recommended debarring the said College from admitting students for two Academic Years, i.e., 2014-15 and 2015-16. As per the directions of Supreme Court, the college was allowed to take admissions for the year 2014-15.
However, when the college applied for renewal next year, Central Government again directed MCI to conduct fresh inspections. As per the case summary of HC, the MCI without conducting fresh inspections recommended the central government to ban the college for academic year 2015-16 and 2016-17 ( thus moving the punishment of the college forward).
With the medical college filing a writ against the said decision in Delhi HC, the Corum of Hon’ble Chief Justice J Rohini and Justice Jayanth Nath noting that
” it appears to us that apart from the allegation that the experience certificate produced by one of the Senior Residents is a forged document, all other alleged deficiencies are minimal. Even the alleged production of forged/fabricated experience certificate of one of the Senior Residents is subject matter of the proceedings before Ethics Committee of Council.”
The college at the moment has been given temporarily been given relief by the delhi high court with the following points.
