Supreme Court cancels MBBS admission to 4 medical colleges in Kerala


Supreme Court cancels MBBS admission to 4 medical colleges in Kerala

New Delhi: In a striking judgment, the Supreme Court has cancelled the admission to 550 MBBS seats in four self-financing medical colleges in Kerala.

This comes after an appeal was filed by the Medical Council of India against an order of the Kerala High Court which allowed MBBS admissions to 4 self-financing medical colleges including Al Azhar Medical College, Thodupuzha; Wayanad DM Medical College; P K Das Medical College, Palakkad and SR Medical College, Varkala.

Medical dialogues had earlier reported that these medical colleges had been denied admissions by the MCI owing to their infrastructural deficiencies, but the colleges had managed to get a relief from the Kerala HC. Challenging the decision of the HC, MCI knocked the doors of the Supreme Court apex court urging the court to quash the order of the Kerala High Court.

Responding to the MCI appeal, the court had in the month of September 2018 had stayed the counselling in the said 4 medical colleges and called for the matter to be heard in detail. A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra ruled that the High Court order allowing admissions to these colleges could not be justified. The apex court also made it clear that the admission of the students who gained seats in these colleges could be cancelled.

The counselling will be held for the remaining MBBS seats and will not include the 550 MBBS seats in 4 medical colleges on which the Supreme court Stay was continuing.

Now in its recent order, the Supreme Court bench led by Justice Arun Mishra, taking cognizance of the poor infrastructure at the said medical colleges has upheld the MCI report that these colleges failed to met the necessary guidelines. It noted that the HC order went against the MCI observations, reports The Week.

The college management and the state government had earlier informed the Supreme Court that the admission procedures were almost completed, but the court did not accept their view.

    IT IS BETTER TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE STATE. AS KARU NADU-. MEANING LAND OF SYMPATHY( DAYE/ E).
    . INSTEAD OF KAR. NATAKA. DO DRAMA. (DOING DRAMA). \” DARMA SHOULD BE THE ESSENCE OF LIFE \” DAYA( SYMPATHY) SHOULD BE THE MAIN INGRADIENT & INTEGRAL PART OF DHARMA (RELIGION). DISCRIMINATION BASED ON THE CASTE, COMMUNITY, REGION, RELIGION & LANGUAGE IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE DEADLY DEVIL , WHICH IS THE WORST EVIL OF SOCIETY. UNFORTUNATELY SUCH THINGS ARE RAMPANTS EVEN IN A NOBLE PROFESSION CALLED MEDICAL SCIENCES. When comes to our justice system \” DELAY IN DENEY \” SHOULD BE SLOGEN. EVERY ONE TRY TO TAKE BEST ADVANATAGE OF THIS DELAY – TARIK PE TARIK ,TARIK PE TARIK , TARIK PE TARIK…..YOU PAY AGAIN & AGAIN , They take again and again. It\’s your loss, other\’s gain.

    IS THERE WAY TO BY PASS HIGH COURT & SPECIALLY WHILE FILING A CASE AGAINST THE MINISTER, SECRETARIES, DIRECTOR ( GOVERNMENT ) OF STATE . SPECIALLY GOVERNMENT CAN INFLUENCE THE LOWER COURTS ? . I STRONGLY FEEL THAT MAY BE THE REASON FOR NOT TAKING UP MY CASES WHICH HAVE FILED AGAINST INJUSTICE DONE TO ME BY THE PREVIOUS MINISTER , WHO HAD AN ADVANATAGE BEING A LOCALITE, BELONGING TO THE DOMINANT CASTE OF THE REGION AND HE WAS ALSO DISTRICT IN CHARGE MINISTER OF A SO CALLED SECULAR PARTY. I AM LOOKING FOR HELP FROM A DYNAMIC ADVOCATE WHO IS READY UP HOLD THE JUSTICE.

    majority, courts are blamed with or other reason. It is true. But we some very good judge\’s are there, like independent stars .I have also personnel experience in high court in karnataka case will never herd finally, Just they go on heard, evry 6week or they post after disposal of other connected case now situation is like that better not to court .You save the time , money, mental &physical health. To get justice is very very remote chances.

  4. I concur with the judgement of the Hon\’ Supreme Court of India. Medical institutions can\’t churn out half backed doctors on account of deficiencies in the training facilities.

  5. Superb judgement….ever made by the supreme court…..hats off….
