MP: Enrollment number for examination denied to PG Medical Students, HC issues notice
Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh High Court has recently issued notices to MP Medical Education University and Medical Education department for not assigning enrollment to the Post-Graduate, PG Medical students.
The move of the HC came in response to the petition filed by ten PG medical students of Index Medical College for the university allegedly not issuing enrollment numbers to them for the examination despite payment of a requisite fee. They further alleged that they were denied the enrollment number on grounds that their documents reached the university late.
According to a media reports, the students cleared an all India entrance test for PG Medical Courses held in 2016 and were allotted seats under state quota. In the petition, they mentioned that they had not only deposited their thesis but also the requisite fee for the course.

The petitioners alleged that the university had scheduled the examination for May but in April, they were informed that they won’t be getting their enrollment numbers as their documents did not reach on time.
Later, the students were asked to submit an affidavit stating that their admission in the PG course till that date was not valid. But, they were not allowed to appear in the exam despite giving an affidavit to that effect, reports the TOI.
The Advocate on behalf of the petitioner informed the daily that ‘if documents were not received in time by the University, Directorate of Medical Education and the college must be at fault and not the students. Index College was under the jurisdiction of Malwanchal University, which has now been brought under the control of MP Medical University and such problems are arising ever since’.
